#SurfacePhone #SurfaceMobile – Surface Phone Could be Released as Microsoft “Surface Mobile”, Chinese Leak : It’s a rumor, but it’s about the only one we’ve had on the elusive Surface Phone in a long, long time.

Essentially, the leak shows a Windows device running on Snapdragon silicon from Qualcomm.
It’s a handheld device, but comes with a feature called “Onto Table” Continuum, which is being assumed to be a feature that lets you project your device’s screen onto another surface, like a table. It also says that battery life is only a little more than an hour on this “desktop mode.”
The description also talks about a kick stand that can recline 185 degrees, but we think that’s not right. 180 degrees is a straight line, which means a device lying flat on the table is already reclining at 180 degrees.
More likely, this is 165 degrees, which is basically what the new Surface Pro kickstand can recline to. The Surface Phone aka Surface Mobile also supports the Surface Pen, according to the leak.
While the veracity of this rumor can’t be confirmed at this point, it’s the only clue we have to the Surface Phone’s existence.
