Microsoft really is working on a ‘pocket-sized’ folding Surface

Codenamed Andromeda, the device has been in the works for a couple of years and appears to neatly straddle the laptop and mobile categories - seemingly trying to make up for Windows Phone.

According to internal documents obtained by The Verge, this device is also going to be a pocketable device. The emails also describe the product as the first in a "new and disruptive" category of devices set to bridge the gap between PCs and phones, reminding us of a statement by Satya Nadella from previous year. It has been presented in patents, reports, and rumors; has been mentioned in operating systems several times; and has been reported that it will apparently incorporate a dual-screen design. 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". Elsewhere, it is suggested that the device will "blur the lines between mobile and stationary computing".

The Verge describes the Andromeda tablet as having a wraparound display that connects at the hinge when opened all the way. Microsoft is also working on a stylus fit for Andromeda, which will act as a pen for taking down notes and other things. The company is tentatively planning to release Andromeda in 2018, with similar devices from some of Microsoft's top OEMs to "follow afterward".

ARM processors are being used in some prototypes, but Microsoft might settle with chips from Intel or Qualcomm. Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.
