There is no doubt that the Microsoft Surface range of products has been geared toward productivity and business usage. With this, the tech giant seems to have perfected the ultimate productivity solution and integrated it with the upcoming Microsoft Surface Phone 2016 - the Continuum.

Perfect Continuum?

If there is one thing that truly sets apart Microsoft's Surface devices from the competition, it's the Windows operating system, which include the upcoming Microsoft Surface Phone 2016. This is a make or break feature for the range, as some users opt for the more popular Android and iOS platform for their mobile devices. Android's main selling point is its performance, while for the iOS, it's the cross-platform integration.

Windows mobile, however, combines the best of both worlds with Continuum. Previous iterations of Windows phones have already integrated this feature into their software. However, the upcoming Microsoft Surface Phone 2016 is said to tout the perfected version of this feature.

The Microsoft Surface Phone 2016 will natively come with a Continuum Mode. When attached to a Display Dock and with the necessary peripherals, the device can turn from a phone into a workstation in just a matter of seconds. Continuum will allow the Surface Phone to power its very own desktop setup. With an attached monitor, keyboard, and an optional mouse, Continuum will provide the user with a highly functional version of Windows 10 through the power of the Surface Phone.

This feature will undoubtedly change the way power users utilize their devices, including the Microsoft Surface Phone 2016. With the added feature of turning the phone into a basic computer, productivity is definitely boosted to a whole new level.

Release Details

For now, there have been conflicting rumors regarding the official release of the Microsoft Surface Phone 2016. Some say that the device will be launched on October 26. Others say that it may be launched next year. This may be due to the fact that the supposed processor, Intel Kaby Lake, will officially be released next year. Whichever the case is, the Microsoft Surface Phone 2016 will be a true game changer in the smartphone landscape.
