Will the Microsoft Surface Phone be released as a rival to the iPhone 9?


Last week we learned from sources close to Microsoft that new mobile models with Windows 10 Mobile will be launched this year, but we will not have the acclaimed Surface Phone. This has made several media investigate or seek more information about Microsoft's flagship device.

About 2018 this terminal is expected, but taking into account Microsoft's launch dates, many believe that It will be 2019 when the Surface Phone hits the market. Year in which the iPhone 9 will also be launched (as long as Apple follows the numbering and calls it that).

Folding screen, fingerprint sensor on the screen, remote wireless charging or facial recognition are some elements that are expected for future mobiles, both for the iPhone 9 and for the Surface Phone.

However, Microsoft's smartphone will have Windows 10 ARM, an operating system that will allow run old Win 32 apps on mobile. Something that no other device on the market will have.

Will the Surface Phone arrive in time?

Of course We do not know if the future iPhone 9 will be superior or not to the Surface Phone or vice versaHowever, the effectiveness of the new Microsoft device is questionable. Apparently not only the IDC company He believes that Microsoft's mobile division will soon disappear from the market if Microsoft does nothing about it. So the question for now is whether or not the Surface Phone will arrive in time to avoid this disaster.

Personal opinion

Personally I think that the Surface Phone will be a striking mobile that will make many users change their mobile for the Microsoft terminal, but I do not think it will arrive in time. The Surface Phone will most likely launch in 2019, which could be too late for the platform. In any case, it seems that Microsoft's success will be in the software and not in the hardware. So i wonder Will the Surface Phone be the great terminal with Windows 10 or will there be a terminal that supplants it?

    If the Surface Phone still lacks Apps like the Lumia do, we will see the same failure movie again.
