What if Microsoft made a smartphone that looked like its Surface tablets That's the idea behind the Surface Phone 2, a concept design by PhoneDesigner that imagines a 4.7-inch Windows Phone 8 device with a thin and angular metal body.
The Surface Phone 2 would have a full HD display, a quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, a microSD slot, a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, a 2-megapixel front camera, and a 2300 mAh battery. It would also support wireless charging and NFC.
The concept is inspired by the Surface 2 tablet, which has a magnesium alloy casing and a kickstand. The Surface Phone 2 would have a similar design language, but without the kickstand. It would also have a dedicated camera button and a headphone jack on the top.
The Surface Phone 2 is not an official product, but rather a fan-made vision of what a Microsoft smartphone could look like. It's not clear if Microsoft has any plans to make its own Windows Phone hardware, but some rumors suggest that it might be working on a Surface-branded phone for the future.
What do you think of the Surface Phone 2 concept Would you buy one if it was real Let us know in the comments below.The Surface Phone 2 concept is not the only one that imagines a Windows Phone device with a Surface-inspired design. There are other fan-made concepts that have similar features, such as the Windows Phone Surface N by IdeaMediaWorks and the Nokia Mirror WP8+ by Edgar Mkrtchyan. These concepts also have 4.7-inch full HD displays, metal bodies, and high-end cameras.
However, the Surface Phone 2 concept stands out for its sleek and minimalist design, which matches the aesthetic of the Surface tablets. It also has a thin profile of only 7 mm, which makes it one of the slimmest smartphones in the market. The concept also has a vibrant color scheme, with options such as cyan, magenta, yellow, and black.
The Surface Phone 2 concept would face tough competition from other smartphones, such as the iPhone 12, the Samsung Galaxy S21, and the Google Pixel 6. These phones have similar or better specifications, as well as more popular operating systems and app ecosystems. The Windows Phone platform has struggled to gain market share and developer support, despite having some loyal fans and unique features.
Nevertheless, the Surface Phone 2 concept shows that there is still potential for innovation and creativity in the Windows Phone space. It also shows that some people are still interested in seeing what Microsoft can do with its own smartphone hardware. Perhaps one day, we will see a real Surface Phone that can rival or surpass the best smartphones in the world.To make the article more engaging and informative, we can add some images of the Surface Phone 2 concept and the other WP8 concepts that we mentioned.
