Aside from a possible 5.7- or 5.8-inch display, it is believed that the device will turn to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset though there could be variants using Snapdragon 821 and 820 SoCs which other brands have been using.

Supporting the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset for the Microsoft Surface Phone will be 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, a 20 MP main camera, 8 MP front-facing shooter, and a built-in QWERTY keyboard. There are three variants expected, most differentiated by RAM and internal storage.
