Despite the fact that Android and iOS devices are currently reigning the smartphone market still, Windows smartphones weren’t all that far behind too. That is, until Microsoft’s latest flagships – the Lumia 950 and 950 XL – were having plunging sales figures. Could the upcoming Surface Phone save it from falling any further?
Many have even suggested that both the Lumia 950 and 950 XL are the last ones in hope to revive Microsoft’s smartphone sector, and they might just be right. That’s because there were only 4.5 million Lumia sold units in the recent fourth quarter, as compared to last year’s 10.5 million sales figures.
There were many problems that have raised with the Lumia smartphone, which has gotten many to return the device in hopes of having it sorted out. One common problem that consistently came to light was regarding the Wi-Fi connectivity. As disappointing as it gets, older Lumia siblings couldn’t help much in helping to boost company sales too.
Now, if the much-rumoured Surface Phone is really as exceptional as it promises to be, we’ll then be able to see Microsoft having a comeback in the smartphone market. Are you excited to see the phone become a reality? Check this render to get a hint into what it might actually look like.
