It looks like Microsoft will be back with a bang this holiday season
, unleashing several new phones and a new Surface tablet in the fall. In fact, there is a rumor now that the company's true flagship smartphone, codenamed Juggernaut Alpha as usual
, will end up being called Surface Mobile.
We say "as usual," since the Juggernaut Alpha project mention first surfaced (pun intended) way back in 2012, indicating the internal efforts to create a Surface phone by Microsoft, before it acquired Nokia's Lumia brand and tech. This Surface phone has apparently undergone quite the change in the final specs sheet since then, as can be expected, but the most important part of the tipster's claim is that it may indeed be called Surface Mobile, which would be a radical departure from the Lumia branding for what could very well be Microsoft's most potent handset ever, looking at the rumored specs below.
In fact, these specs are a notch above the eventual Lumia 950 (Talkman) and Lumia 950XL (Cityman)
handsets that are expected to be unveiled in October. The Microsoft Surface Mobile could then be the company's true flagship for the season, and the insiders claim that it is expected to arrive towards the end of this year, or the beginning of 2016 at the latest. With a QHD display, 4 GB RAM, and a 21 MP PureView cam wrapped in an aluminum/magnesium alloy body, just like the venerable Surface tablet, the Surface Mobile phone should be a sight to behold, too, what do you think?
