Microsoft continues to enjoy the success of the Surface Pro series, though some are hoping to see a smaller mobile version come out. CEO Satya Nadella previously hinted that an ultimate mobile device is in the works, promising it will not look like the phones out in the market now.

Nadella made those statements when he sat down with Molly Wood, who covers an array of topics on Nadella's exact words were: "…when you say we’ll make more phones, I’m sure we’ll make more phones, but they will not look like phones that are there today."

The best way to visualise the Microsoft Surface Phone is to refer to the Surface Pro laplets on a smaller scale. Add some features popular among the advanced specs present in mobile brands and multiple possibilities come to mind. While all that has been theoretic in the past months, a post on social media has fired up the potential coming of the Microsoft Surface Phone.

Thanks to Twitter user @h0x0d (WalkingCat), references to a certain device named "Surface Mobile" were spotted on the official Microsoft page, stirring resurrected hope of seeing the long-awaited Surface Phone. Among the alleged features include projector capabilities and hardware connectivity options (i.e. mouse and keyboard). Similar to the Microsoft Surface Pro, it could come with docking capabilities, hinting that a phone could give eventual owners a pocket PC in hand.

The idea of a Microsoft Surface Phone that comes with a dock and offers a portable PC solution is not exactly new. HP is offering a similar product in the HP Elite X3, an all-in-one device running on Windows 10.

As reviewed by Manila Bulletin, the HP Elite X3 could easily dock in and out, branding it a powerful device that could change the way desktop and mobile computing will become moving forward. Such could be the same route for the Microsoft Surface Phone once other details are made official.

For now, the only bared detail is that the Surface Mobile would be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. It also curiously has two codenames – "Peking" and "Slavonia." Other than those, other key features of the Microsoft Surface Phone remain a mystery as the Redmond company keeps silent on the development and progress of the fancied mobile device.

With Microsoft sitting pretty and watching rival companies try to duplicate the feat of the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, focusing on the Surface Phone seems plausible. There is one coming, though Nadella has opted to keep folks guessing on when the mobile device version will roll out.
