The company decided to pull away from making its Lumia-branded smartphones last year. Instead, Microsoft said it would focus on boosting Windows 10 Mobile for OEMs. However, it had never said that it would permanently move away from smartphones and rumours from time to time indicate that Microsoft may soon release a Surface phone.

Nadella has long championed Continuum as the stand-out feature on Windows 10 Mobile. Interestingly, a Continuum-like feature is currently available via the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
