Microsoft Surface Mobile Rumors: Lumia 950 To Be Replaced By New Rumored Windows 10-Powered Handset?

For the past few months, there have been rumors that Microsoft is preparing a duo of smartphones that would finally be able to run Windows 10 out of the box. In fact, these devices are said to be spiritual successors of the Nokia Lumia 930 last year, and would come with high-end specs and features.

However, a recent report claims that Microsoft could be working on its 'true' flagship which would be announced by the end of the year or early 2016.

According to a report by Phone Arena, the rumored handset would be named Surface Mobile, which makes sense because Microsoft's tablet lineup is named Surface.

In the report, the rumored device has already been undergoing testing, and the last of these tests was recorded on July 26. Interestingly, the model name of the device is Juggernaut Alpha, a Microsoft project that was reportedly mentioned back in 2012.

If this rumored device is indeed the Juggernaut Alpha, then it would be interesting to find out why it has been postponed for this long. It could be that Microsoft did not have the right tools (fast and feature-rich platform, better knowledge of mobile devices) back in the day.

However, now that Microsoft has acquired Nokia's mobile division, it has more knowledge to work on with regards to handsets. The Windows 10 update for multiple platforms has also received positive reviews from early adopters, which makes us believe that the Surface Mobile could be the next step towards better standing in the smartphone market.

Based on the report, some of the rumored specs of the Microsoft Surface Mobile, or Juggernaut Alpha, include a 5.5-inch QHD display, 4GB of RAM, and interestingly an Intel Atom x3 chipset. Other alleged specs include a 21MP PureView camera, 8MP front cam, Windows 10 Mobile, USB Type-C port, and storage options of either 64GB or 128GB.
