This year has been Microsoft's year as the company released several Surface products into the tech world. There is no best time to introduce the next Surface Phone but now.

Microsoft's yet to be confirmed Surface Phone could be packing some serious specs. If the leaked information online is accurate, this device would run on a 6GB RAM and a detachable keyboard. Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO, recently confirmed in an interview that they are indeed working on a new mobile device.

According to other sources, the Surface Phone is currently in development using a different configuration. So it is safe to say that the device may come in a 4GB or 6GB of RAM variant when it arrives in the market. Microsoft could also release several variants with different levels of RAM or other varying specifications.

Microsoft's next Surface Phone will undoubtedly run on a Windows 10 operating system -- the same as other up-to-date Surface devices. Both variants will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. Though only the higher end model is expected to run on X68 apps in Microsoft's Continuum Mode.

Other chatters circulating Microsoft's next Surface Phone claim that it will have a 5.5 inch Quad HD display. It is also equipped with a fingerprint scanner, an 8-megapixel front facing camera and a 21-megapixel rear camera. Other sources stated that the mobile device will have amazing accessories that are true to the Surface branding. It might also come with a stylus pen and a potential keyboard cover.

Tech enthusiasts may need to wait longer for the release of Microsoft Surface Phone. The mobile device is said to debut not earlier than the last quarter of 2017, which could mean another whole year of waiting. This may pose as a double-edged sword because the company's momentum that time may not be as strong as now.
