Microsoft's Plan To Derail MacBook Pro Is Going Great

The Microsoft Surface Phone will run on the Windows 10 Redstone 3 update and may feature a stylus and keyboard cover like the Surface Pro. 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.

Although the Surface Phone might represent a huge leap for the company, this delay clearly represents great news for Apple and Samsung, considering that both giants are expecting to increase its relevance and revenues with these flagships, in a moment where the Chinese smartphones are finally coming to the US market. It is believed to come with either the Snapdragon 835 processor or Intel's 14nm Kaby Lake CPU. According to Alphr, Microsoft will most likely launch the Surface Pro 5 this April.

This is just what Microsoft needs and they are hoping for the pattern to continue in years to come. As it is, Intel has plans to unveil a 2-in-1 hybrid tablet that will take on the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 when it comes out somewhere in Q2 2017.

With the price slash on the Surface Pro 4 and the exit of the Surface Pro 3 from the store shelves, could it be that Microsoft is, indeed, releasing the Surface Pro 5 in the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 happening in Barcelona, Spain later this month, just like what earlier speculations suggested? The screen is rumored to have 4K resolution.

He's clever and can play in different positions. "He's a complete player", the Swedish striker said, according to ESPN . Lingard is one who Rooney - now United's record goalscorer - has taken under his wing at Carrington.

Yibada points out that the Surface Phone could be Microsoft's major comeback in the smartphone arena after discontinuing the Lumia series. In a lot of ways, this makes flawless sense, since the main weakness of the SP5's predecessor, the Surface Pro 4, was its absence of cellular support.

While it's not clear if Intel is targeting the Surface Pro 4 or the Surface Book laptop, what the company is aiming for is building a 2-in-1 device that would support both laptop and tablet modes.

If Microsoft does release an LTE-capable version of the Surface Pro 5, it would spell big trouble for its rivals such as Apple's powerhouse, supersized tablet. However, the lineup is missing one key element - a smartphone device. While this might mean that Microsoft would need to release a variant of the SP5 with an ARM-based processor, a recent demonstration of Windows 10 running on the mobile chip seemed to suggest that the Redmond-based tech giant is seriously looking into the premise of a Surface device that can access the internet anytime, anywhere.
