Microsoft Whiteboard App Shown To Reference Surface Phone WalkingCat Confirms
Microsoft Corporation has been rumored to be working on a Surface Phone for quite some time now. The much-talked smartphone will reportedly make its first appearance during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in February.
Some recent news suggests that Microsoft would effectively be ditching Windows Phone. Nevertheless, a lot of the company’s fans are speculating that it would launch a Surface Phone. As a matter of fact, it appears that the company may still pursue a phone-type handset with Windows on it and might be launched during the MWC 2018.
The Redmond-based tech giant is allegedly making a device codenamed “Andromeda” which is also known as Surface Phone. This device is basically a foldable tablet that runs Windows 10, intended to fit in the pocket of the owner. The said handset is supposed to replace the smartphone — but as a substitute a kind of digital pocket notebook.
There have been talks that the recent code from the Microsoft Whiteboard app was shown to reference a foldable device. This piece of information comes from Windows tipster WalkingCat, who distinguished that the app references left and right pages for a Journal app. This simply suggests that Microsoft could well be working on a gadget with clear left and right edges.
Adding some additional fuel to the fire is another even more fresh report that a reference to Andromeda was seen in the most current Windows Insider Windows 10 release, build 17025. This seems to confirm that Microsoft is indeed working on an exceptional Windows shell — or user interface — for a pen-based handset that could end up being the Surface Phone.
When it comes to price, there are still no concrete details available as of this moment yet. Nevertheless, what seems clear is that whatever Surface Phone ends up being, it won’t be intended for the average customer. As of now, there is still a lot of missing pieces of the puzzle. With that, it is advised to stay tuned for upcoming information.
