Microsoft Surface Phone Will Be Like A Tiny Laptop With Five Modes
The leaks of the Andromeda OS-powered Surface Phone from the tech company Microsoft seems to be back on track with a better idea of how it functions once launched. The functionality of the device will be better and far more complex.
According to Phone Arena, a code has surfaced online that the long-rumored foldable phone will have newer features. The five different preset positions include concave, tent mode, convex, full, and closed, which makes the dual screens face each other inward. The available certain applications depend on how it is oriented. The patents had previously an alarm clock when the device is in tent mode. A virtual QWERTY will show up in one of the screens during the convex mode. This feature is similar to the setup of a laptop that has a physical one.
In terms of design, the foldable Surface Phone appears to have hinges once released in the market. The mechanism allows the phone to rotate 360 degrees based on the API found in the diff of Windows Build 17704 compared to an earlier version of the operating system.
The foldable phone is lately rumored with a codename Andromeda and will be able to make phone calls. The Snapdragon 1000 chipset will be powering it and is reportedly the powerful chip to compete with Intel’s best processors such as Y and U processor series. The company collaborated with Qualcomm to design this chip. This device will potentially surpass most other flagship smartphones that are currently in the market.
The release date will be some time this year. Some suggested this since the pressure is on for the company to launch this long-rumored foldable phone in the market the soonest possible. Its big competitor will be the long-awaited foldable Galaxy smartphone from the Korean tech company Samsung. The latter is already set to unveil next February at the Mobile World Congress.
