Do these leaked shots show a Dell Windows 10 phone or Surface Phone?

Many smartphone fans have been hoping to see a phone that runs a full version of Windows 10 for some time now, and it seems we've just got a look at a new handset that does just that – though whether it will ever launch remains unclear.

Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, shared the following images, which some have said could be Microsoft's long-rumoured Surface Phone, while other reports claim it's a Dell device that runs full Windows 10.

There's no way to know if the images shared by Blass are the Surface Phone, but Thurrott claims it is a Dell-made device that uses Intel processors to run a full version of Windows 10, citing 'sources familiar with the phone".

However, the report also states that Intel scrapped development on the silicon that would have been used to power the handset, so it seems we're unlikely to see this phone in the flesh any time soon.

That said, Blass has 'confirmed' to The Verge's Tom Warren that the phone in question is "much more than a concept", and shared some shots of the device being used in the real world.

Just what we're looking at here, and whether it will be released remains unclear, for now then, but it whatever the case, we're sure it won't be long until a full Windows 10 phone arrives in some form.

While the images from Blass might not show the Surface Phone, the device is yet to be officially identified, so watch this space for more in the near future.

Can't be a Surface phone because it has hard buttons for back, home and search. The current line of Lumia 950 phones has soft buttons that hide when you watch a video clip or look at pictures and they rotate when you turn to landscape mode. There is no way Microsoft would back track on this because it provides valuable screen real estate when they are hidden. The future of phones is no more hard buttons on the face of the phone (whether you like this or not, it's a reality.)

I must be one of the few people that dislike these soft vanishing navigation buttons. I prefered the original, hard buttons. Much more practical.
