Everyone in the Windows Phone community hopes to see Microsoft launching the eagerly-anticipated Surface Phone next year, and according to a recent report, work on the project advances nicely and the company is indeed on track to unveil the device with Redstone 3 in the fall of 2017
Before anything, a small disclaimer: this is just a report for the time being and is based on unknown sources, so there’s a good chance that it’s not accurate. But given the latest rumors, the details that the report includes pretty much make sense.
Specifically, NPU writes that Microsoft has developed several prototypes for the Surface Phone and all of them are powered by a Snapdragon 835 CPU and come with support for Quick Charge 4.0. This would give the device super-fast charging speeds with a USB Type-C connector. Wireless charging is very likely to be supported as well.
