Microsoft working with suppliers to build its own smartphone

Microsoft is working with component suppliers in Asia on testing its own smartphone design, according to reports.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the company has begun testing a smartphone design with its component suppliers, but is yet to decide whether the new device will go into mass production.

The new smartphone is said to feature a 4- to 5-inch display and is similar in size to Apple’s iPhone 5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S3.

The news comes after the release of Microsoft’s Surface tablet, which has seen the company expand into the computer hardware market.
