The Microsoft Surface Phone has captured the interest of fans again with another rumored update; Microsoft has more than one unit in the works. The latest information from various sources indicated that Microsoft is indeed working on multiple mobile units and may release them in various levels of RAM. If this is the case, the Microsoft Surface Phone may have multiple units out on the market.

According to sources, the Microsoft Surface Phone may carry the latest Snapdragon 835 with Quickcharging 4.0. The units will have the Windows 10 architecture at either the 4GB or 6GB RAM. Both units will reportedly be 5.5 inches with QHD display.

The Microsoft Surface Phone might also have an interesting Laptop Accessory and that Microsoft is exploring a 3-in1 form. This has not been confirmed yet but if it will come into fruition, it will definitely be an interesting feature.

Speculations claim that the 6GB Microsoft Surface Phone prototype is already capable of running X86 apps in the Continuum. The news came after rumors that Microsoft is exploring the X86-on ARM64 emulation started to circulate. The 4 GB prototype will still run with the Snapdragon 835 but won't be able to run X86 apps in the Continuum. With this set-up, it seems that Microsoft is planning to have a consumer and enterprise version of their units.

The Microsoft Surface Phone is said to be launched at the end of 2017. Microsoft currently has 1 percent of the market and they are not in a hurry for now. It is clear that they want to re-enter the market with a bang so, it is indeed crucial that they do this right.

Satya Nadella, Microsoft's CEO, has not yet confirmed the rumors surrounding the Microsoft Surface Phone. Until then, fans will have to settle with updates and understand that they may or may not come true.
