Microsoft is working on dual-screen, ‘pocketable’ Surface device

As reported by The Verge, the innovative device is called Andromeda which is its codename and Microsoft has been silently working on the project over the last two years. But rather than again taking on smartphones from Apple, Samsung and Google in what has so far proven to be a losing battle, the Redmond company will reportedly position this device as creating a "new and disruptive" category.

Microsoft is working on a "pocketable" Surface device, according to a leaked internal email obtained by The Verge. It's supposed to be released this year, so expect it to appear somewhere this Autumn. The device is still under secret development at Microsoft and has a wraparound display which bridges the gap of the hinge when opened completely. This device is codenamed "Andromeda" and will come with a dual-display design.

Microsoft's next big piece of hardware, Andromeda, may just fit in your pocket. Known by its Andromeda code name and widely believed to debut as the Surface Phone, Microsoft's dual-screen PC could be used in up to five different configurations, depending on the orientation of the screens. You can see a caricature of Panay in the left frame thanking the LG Display team pictured on the right. No representatives of Microsoft were available to comment on this secret surface device. The Verge also states that the current engineering samples of this pocketable Surface device look identical to 3D concepts created by David Breyer. In other words, this is a very rough idea of what the Surface Phone will look like in tablet mode.

It's possible Microsoft could choose to launch the device alongside the next major Windows 10 Update, likely to be called the Fall Creators Update 2018, this September.
