Previous reports of Microsoft working on the Surface Phone seems to be turning out true. Earlier today a mysterious device bearing the name Microsoft Surface Phone was spotted in HTML5test benchmark. The test was conducted via Microsoft Edge 12.0 Browser which was running on Windows 10.
This is little amusing considering the fact that word 'Mobile' isn't mentioned anywhere. Apparently the benchmark shows the device running a full blown Windows 10 version instead of the Windows Mobile that is popularly seen in Lumia series of handset including the recently launched - Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL.
Furthermore the HTML5test benchmark listing shows the Microsoft Surface Phone sporting a display with a odd resolution of 640x360 pixels. The folks at GSMArena however has a valid point that provides a possible explanation behind the odd resolution. According to the report Microsoft is possibly testing out various resolution in the prototype of the Surface Phone.
Words regarding an alleged Surface Phone had cropped up about 3 year back. However lot have changed in the last few years. In fact Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella himself clarified in an interview to The Verge that the Redmond giant is indeed thinking if not working to add a smartphone to their Surface lineup.
