Microsoft's dual-screen folding Surface device 'Andromeda' leaked

The Next Microsoft Surface May Fit in Your Pocket

Microsoft’s pocketable Surface device is a bold gamble after the failure of Windows Phone

More and more, it really does seem that this device will be the mythical Surface Phone that Microsoft and Windows fans have always been hoping for. Codenamed Andromeda, the device features a dual-display design meant to create a "new and disruptive" device category blurring the lines between PC and mobile.

As we told you earlier today, a leaked internal Microsoft document indicates that the Andromeda project is indeed a pocketable Surface device that will be "new and disruptive".

For those unaware, the project Andromeda has been in development for at least two years and has been appearing constantly in reports from other publications and even patents from Microsoft. Numerama had initially unveiled the codename Andromeda previous year. It's also likely the device would also dock with a Surface Keyboard in order to create a more traditional notebook-style device.

But it sounds like this new Surface device isn't exactly like a conventional smartphone.

The teams could not be separated after 90 and then 120 minutes, signalling the first penalty shoot-out of the 2018 World Cup . Referees and video officials have consistently penalised handballs in the box at this World Cup.

By all indications, Andromeda will try to mitigate that design problem with a display that wraps around the gap of the hinge. The secret surface device known as Andromeda is the next major device to be able to challenge PC and phones.

Microsoft is also experimenting with stylus input for Andromeda so that the device can be folded over like a book and the pen can be used to capture input. It seems the brand is going to pitch it as a pocketable Surface device.

The motive of Microsoft Company behind building this secret device is responding in a unique way to the failures being faced with Windows Phone devices presently. Elsewhere, it is suggested that the device will "blur the lines between mobile and stationary computing". This is a clear indication that the company has plans to launch a dual-screen mobile device in the near future.
