The tech company has been decisive to provide something out of the ordinary and will stay in the phone industry as they get to introduce the 2017 Microsoft Surface Phone next year.

"We will continue to be in the phone market not as defined by today's market leaders, but by what it is that we can uniquely do in what is the most ultimate mobile device," said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

It was reported that Microsoft is going to have a special approach in regards to smartphone competition, with the intention of creating the considerable "ultimate mobile device" far from other smartphone companies who are engaged mostly in the smartphone race competition, Auto World News reported.
