After successfully launching the flagship Lumia 950 and 950XL alongside the budget Lumia 550 Microsoft is finally back focusing on the Windows 10 Mobile release. However there seems to be bigger plan on their radar and guess what it is the launch of the long impending - Microsoft Surface Phone!

Microsoft’s New ‘Business Phone’ confirmed; is it the Surface Phone?

The Microsoft Surface Phone in fact made an appearance on a benchmark a few days back. The benchmark however portrayed grossly incorrect specifications of the upcoming device. And no wonder the Microsoft CFO, Amy Hood gave away some hints according to a report by rcpmag regarding the existence of the Surface Phone at the UBS Global Technology Broker Conference.

"We launched a 950 and a 950 XL. They're premium products, at the premium end of the market, made for Windows fans. And we'll have a business phone, as well," Amy Hood said.

It is reported that Hood was trying to refer a business phone in form of the Surface. Previously Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has disclosed in an exclusive interview with the The Verge that their Surface lineup is mainly aimed at business users.

Furthermore Hood added, "If the mobility of the experience is important, then we'll probably be in that segment, in the phone, which is a premium in the business segment. It's very funny, all the articles that have come out on how we own more of your iPhone space than we used to on your mobile phone. It's because of these beautiful experiences that we've put together that are accruing back to Office. It's a very good thing to have people want to use your app. That is what we mean by 'mobile-first.' It doesn't have to mean we sell a phone. Let me be super clear on that"

The term 'business phone' wouldn't surely be making the enthusiasts happy. In fact it doesn't seem that the Surface Phone would be sporting flagship specs when it launches in early 2016. However one thing is clear - a business phone aka a Surface Phone is indeed in works.
