    Here's a link to an article posted today detailing the so-called "Juggernaut Alpha":

    What do you guys think of this report? I have never even heard of the website from which this originates; is it even a trustworthy / credible source?

    The Pocketnow article links to Purported full specs of Surface Mobile phone "Juggernaut Alpha" leak - WMPoweruser and the commenters there are pretty sure it's fake.

    I think MS needs to get their new Lumia's out before what would be a very expensive Surface Phone. (Would enough people buy an iPhone priced Windows phone to justify producing them?)

    Looks nice... except for the low end ATOM x3 SoC. I have doubts about the capability of that SoC to handle the screen resolution and the camera sensor.

    If it's real it should be packing a custom high end Atom x5 at least.

    With a starting name like Juggernaut Alpha... It'd better be real.

    I'm looking forward to the new Lumias as much as anyone, but if Microsoft really wants to wow people, a Surface phone is needed. Make something that looks as fancy, or fancier, than the iPhone.

    1000% fake
    Atom x3 is a 28nm chip which can only handle 5mp front and 13mp rear cameras and 1080p video and display, nowhere near the supposed specs.
    Also, very sloppy reporting and faking, took me 1 minute to look up the x3 specs on Intel.com

    BTW, Intel's platform brief for the x5/7 says they also support no more than 13mp, guess those two really are meant just for tablets and not for smartphones.

    Is this the same "Juggernaut Alpha" from three years ago?

    The rumor is 100% true as long as it's a rumor. These pseudo-journalists can't survive on actual reporting and rely on web hits to stay relevant.
