Microsoft working on a folding Surface phone, LG to provide the displays


The so-called "Andromeda" project has been popping up in the news since last year but data is rather scarce. Now, a leaked email along with some new genus Apis found in Windows 10's latest preview offers the United States a bit a lot to speculate about.

The Andromeda Surface Phone is not going to be simply a "phone." It's going to be a "pocketable device" following the steps of Microsoft's successful Surface line of laptops with flexible hinges. It aims to be in a category of its own due to its unique form factor and yes, we are talking about a foldable phone.

The API permits applications to adjust their interface and functionality depending on the hinge's position. The code reads: closed, concave, convex, flat and full. and we can also expect stylus pen support just like the remainder of the Surface devices. but not like its larger siblings, the hinge can go all the way up to 360 degrees allowing for enhanced functionality when totally opened or totally closed.

Based on the patented filings from before and Microsoft's leaked email, a Twitter user has published some elaborated renders of how the Surface Phone might seem like.

In the most recent news, Panos Panay - Surface chief - posted a photo on Twitter of him and a caricature of him - a present from LG. Seemingly, the two photos are hooked up to a two-piece, hinged picture frame, resembling the Surface Phone in tablet mode, when totally extended. this could be an indication that LG will be producing the displays, or we are just looking for something that isn't there.

Anyway, we can expect the Surface Phone later this year, running Windows 10 and power-driven by Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 850. but the real question remains: is Windows 10's ecosystem adequate to deliver an adequate mobile experience? we hope to find out soon enough because the Andromeda project does sound exciting.
