Surface Phone Gets an Official Domain, Hardware Rumors Hint at Quad HD Resolution

Rumored hardware for Surface Phone doesn't seem all that compelling

The rumors that fly about new smartphones certainly lean heavily towards Apple and Android devices, but there is a third option that many fans are clamoring for. Microsoft has been doing well with its Surface line of premium tablets and laptops. This has led many fans to have strong want for a Surface phone.

Rumors swirled heavily late in 2016 that the Surface phone was on its way, but that never happened. Microsoft has snagged an official domain name for the Surface Phone and it's as you might expect surfacephone.com according to DroidReport. The web address redirects to the home page at Microsoft right now and is also registered by Microsoft according to the domain records. I think if all Microsoft was trying to do with that domain name was to keep a competitor from grabbing it, it would have simply bought the domain and left if fallow.

Once the web address is up and running all Microsoft needs to do is redirect it to the right page for the phone and it is off to the races. Rumors suggest that the Surface Phone will use a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with resolution of 1440 x 2560. The rumored chipset for the device is a Snapdragon 835 or perhaps an Intel part. I think Microsoft needs to use the Snapdragon part, Intel doesn't have the best rep for performance and power conservation in the mobile market.

Storage is rumored to be 128GB with 4GB of RAM and a microSD card slot for expansion. That all sounds pretty good, but the real question remains is if Microsoft will build it. The Windows platform is a distant third place in the smartphone realm behind iOS and Android. It will take some very compelling hardware to lure large numbers of people to the platform and these rumored specs seem quite mainstream right now.
