Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella made certain that the company will indeed make a great comeback and will continue in the smartphone industry. He called the new-to-be-launched 2017 Microsoft Surface Phone the 'ultimate mobile device'. With that being said, there will be high expectations on the upcoming smartphone which Microsoft is very confident that it will even surpass it.
Apple won't allow being left behind. The giant company is slated to release its latest iPhone which has a curved screen as early next year. There are reports that the once highest smartphone seller is now under pressure to supply a best-selling device as soon as iPhone seals its 10-year anniversary next year. According to sources, a new iPhone with an OLED screen will debut along with other several models. However, it should be expected that these new models will be more expensive since OLED screens are costlier to manufacture.
Other smartphone competitors like Samsung Electronics Co., Xiaomi, and Google Inc. already transitioned from using traditional liquid crystal displays to OLED screens due to its thinner, lighter, and enable for flexible designs. OLED displays don't need a backlight component to light up, according to The Verge.
Apparently, circulating rumors that Apple's 2017 iPhone lineup will consist of three devices; two of which have 5.5-inch models varied by their screens, and a 4.7-inch model. Bigger models may sport dual cameras.
Whatever Apple's reasons for the earlier release of its new iPhone with curved edges will be their discretion. 2017 Microsoft Surface Phone will keep its stand as the 'ultimate mobile device'.
