Looks like Microsoft is working on a new Lumia handset. Dubbed Lumia Phone X, the device was mistakenly revealed by the Chinese unit of the Redmond, Washington-based company when they uploaded a video explaining how Continuum works.
While the video in question doesn’t contain any reference to the yet-to-be announced device, its the description accompanying the video where the Lumia Phone X was mentioned as one of the four devices that currently support Continuum – the other three being Lumia 950/XL andAcer Jade Primo.
The description – which has since been edited – read (translated):

Use dock or adapter to connect to a TV or monitor, and then use your application on a larger screen and view your content. You can also make your mouse and keyboard computer phone has the same powerful features, such as production of Office documents, send e-mail, and even type text messages.

And here’s the video in question:
There’s been no information (not even rumors) about the Lumia Phone X so far. A recent report suggested that the Lumia 650 will be the first and last Lumia phone for 2016. So perhaps, Microsoft is targeting a 2017 launch for the device. And who knows, this could also be the long-rumored Surface Phone, which is said to release this fall.
