Snapshot and specifications of Microsoft's rumoured flagship, Surface Mobile, has surfaced online.
In 2013, Nokia, while filing to United States SEC (Security & Exchange Commission) on 'Risk Factors' assessment about the company's competitors, had expressed fear over the reports of the American technology behemoth's plan of launching its own phone series denting company's revenue in the future. But that never materialised as the former got acquired by Microsoft in 2014.
Now, a report has emerged that Microsoft is ready with its own Surface series handset, which is expected to get unveiled later this year or early 2016.
A tipster has leaked a picture of the alleged smartphone with spec-sheet to technology blog WMPower User. The white-hued phone in the image looks identical to the company's Lumia series. On the front side, we can see the trademark Windows home button and on the rear-side, it features 'Surface Phone' engraving at the bottom and the circular primary camera with LED flash on the top.

It has been learnt that Microsoft Surface will flaunt an Aluminum-Magneium alloy body, sport a 5.5-inch QHD (2560x1440p) display and run on the company's latest Windows 10 OS backed by 4GB/3GB RAM. To help users navigate the big screen, the company will be incorporating Surface Pen stylus support, similar to Samsung's Galaxy Note series.
And like all premium Microsoft phones, Surface Mobile too will house a state-of-the-art camera. It is expected to have a 21mp PureView camera with Zeiss 6-lens sensor and an 8mp snapper with Zeiss wide-Angle lens on the front.
One notable feature of Microsoft Surface phone is that it will house an Intel Atom X3 (SoFIA) processor, not Snapdragon series SoC (System on Chip), which is found in all Lumia series phones.
