Microsoft has not revealed the date of the Surface Phone's release. The Surface Pro 5 will come with the Windows 10 Creators Update. With the vast success of the Surface Pro 4, the upcoming release of the SP5 is all but confirmed. Interestingly, Intel clearly wants to lure more consumers to its laptop hybrid that's why it is using a curved display - something that Microsoft has yet to try with its Surface devices.

The Microsoft Surface Phone 2017 is said to feature a Quick Charge 4.0 to provide the 5 hours of battery life from 5 minutes of charging. From the leaked images, the configuration has lots of similarities with Microsoft's Surface Pro lineup. The sound of detachable display alone is enough to tell us that Intel is going after the market that the Surface and Surface Pro lines have established.

Rumour has it that if the product does launch, it will come packing Intel's upcoming eighth-generation processors, which will give it a real chance against Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 (or 5) - especially if it's priced competitively.

Aside that, there have been some reports that claim that Satya Nadella, Microsoft's CEO, is planning to reveal the new update via the Surface Pro 5 or the Surface Book 2. If the Surface Pro 5 does include support for a Mini Surface Dial, it would most likely herald yet another success for Microsoft.

A NASDAQ report has said that the Microsoft Surface Pro has achieved sales of $1.3 billion during the last quarter of 2016. However, it has been known that the tech giant would probably announce the next-gen flagship before the end of 2017, which means that it would be officially launched next year, meaning that a legendary fight between this mobile device and the iPhone 8 or the Galaxy S8 won´t happen.

Surface Pro fans can only hope so.

While rumors point to a marked increase in battery capacity of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5, it is highly likely that the hybrid device will have a 4K screen. Even if Microsoft surprises everyone with a 4K screen, it will only be in the premium variant. The reason for the delay is because Microsoft was waiting for Intel to get the next-gen processors ready, but don't be surprised if the curved Intel tablet debuts an even better processor that will make the device more unique when compared to the Pro 5 and other hybrids.
