Microsoft Surface Phone has been in rumors from over a year. And now report from The Verge suggests the device, codenamed Andromeda, will be a pocketable device that will blur the lines between mobile and stationary computing.
That is about what we have expecting since some of the earlier rumors, but it is how Microsoft describes it in an internal document obtained by The Verge. The document also says:
It’s a new pocketable Surface device form factor that brings together innovative new hardware and software experiences to create a truly personal and versatile computing experience.
Previous patents and reports have told us Andromeda will be a foldable device, allowing it to morph in size depending on how it’s being used. Dual-screen PCs were one of the main attractions at Computex this year, suggesting Microsoft is encouraging this form factor. Problem is, these devices all have a large gap between the panels. Basically, the laptop version of a Nintendo DS.
Now by all indications, Andromeda will try to mitigate that design problem with a display that wraps around the gap of the hinge. Also The Verge goes so far to say that“current engineering samples of the pocketable Surface look identical” to these concepts created by David Breyer:
Now there is a lot of question about the design and about what will be the specs of the new surface phone. Will it be android supported or will it bring the windows mobile OS ?. Now there is no official statement from Microsoft about it for that time we just need to wait and see.
