Taking a look at the rumor mill, we've got little concrete information for the Microsoft Surface Phone. The device has been in and out of the news for quite a while. While we have heard some information about prospective features, taking a look at other flagships, the device simply can't keep up (in terms of leaks). The little information which has surface suggests a continuation of Microsoft's approach on the Surface lineup. Today, we have leaked screenshots of an updated Windows 10 mobile build that could make it on the Surface Phone. Take a look below for more.
Leaked Windows 10 Mobile Screenshots Hint At The Future Of Microsoft Surface Phone
If there's one thing that Microsoft would like to forget, it's Windows Mobile. The company's failure with Nokia and the subsequent writing off of the Finnish manufacturer didn't win it any fans. However, with the Surface lineup, we're finally starting to see a refreshed approach towards portability. Not only have the the Surface Pro and Surface Books been good devices, the upcoming Surface Phone can seal the deal perfectly for Microsoft.
Today, we've managed to get our hands on a lot of alleged Windows 10 Mobile screenshots. They show upgrades for several features, from Web Payments to View 3D. To start off with Web Payments, Microsoft's added the Microsoft Wallet service to Windows 10 mobile. It allows you to enter your financial details in order to facilitate efficient payments across retailers. Another interesting feature is Reading List, which makes a neat list of all the stuff you'd like to read on the internet but don't have the time for.
The Settings app also receives significant overhaul. Microsoft's streamlined the overall interface over here, that manages to display content and applications in an efficient manner. Finally, View 3D also makes it on Windows 10 Mobile today. With the feature, not only will you be able to view 3D content, but with mobile, you'll also be able to record it. Looks like a very efficient feature for the Surface Phone if you ask us.
Microsoft's Surface Phone is also rumored to feature x86 compatibility and Continuum. These will definitely give the device a strong edge over other mobile flagships, particularly when it comes to running performance intensive and oriented content. The Snapdragon 835 will power the device, so you can be assured that there won't be any drawbacks when it comes to performance requirements. Thoughts?
