Microsoft’s upcoming mobile device codenamed Andromeda (often referred to as Surface Phone) has long been considered as an innovative Windows 10 device. Microsoft Andromeda is said to be a flagship Surface-branded device with a dual-screen and innovative hinge technology setup.
While the Surface Phone rumour makes the rounds every once in a while but it’s already clear that Microsoft is not interested in yet another smartphone. The company is reportedly working on a foldable device with Windows Core OS, and it’s codenamed, Andromeda.
Today, a new report from reliable sources confirmed that Microsoft’s Andromeda is launching later this year. It’s a pocketable Windows 10 device that’s supposed to create a “truly personal and versatile computing experience”.
As expected, the OEM partners are also planning to release similar hardware, and Andromeda will create a new category of devices.
It’s likely that Microsoft’s Andromeda will run on ARM processor, and it won’t be a smartphone. The device is also not supposed to kill the iPhone, instead, it will invent a new product category in the typical Microsoft fashion.
