Details of Microsoft's 'pocketable Surface' device leaked

Details of Microsoft's 'pocketable Surface' device leaked”

Originally, Microsoft had introduced Surface Pro and Surface RT six years ago as devices which were designed for creation of a new category for challenging the differences between a laptop and a tablet.

The Verge has now obtained an internal document which describes Andromeda as something which Microsoft has quietly incubated internally. But at the moment we can see that Microsoft has definitely been working a dual-screen device that features a 360-degree hinge similar to Lenovo's Yoga laptops. 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.

Rumors of a dual-screen Surface have been kicking around for a little bit, but here's a surprising new detail: It's built for your pocket. The document reportedly says that the device represents a "device form factor that brings together innovative new hardware and software experiences to create a truly personal and versatile computing experience" and that it will be "new and disruptive". Other companies such as Apple and Intel are also working on similar devices with no reliable confirmation of their release.

We can't independently confirm the report, and Microsoft didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Alas, Andromeda, if it's indeed real, is still being developed inside Microsoft, and there's still the possibility of things changing.

So it's a Surface Phone?

For Microsoft enthusiasts, today might be a rather auspicious day, indeed.

The internal documents say the device is slated for 2018, with some of Microsoft's partner OEM's planning to follow suit with interpretations, much like they have with the mixed reality headsets now on the market.
