Microsoft details its 'pocketable' Surface device in leaked email

We've had numerous hints in recent weeks and months that a Surface Phone or something like it might be on the cards, and now a leaked email is pointing to a "pocketable" Surface device that's been two years in the works. But rather than again taking on smartphones from Apple, Samsung and Google in what has so far proven to be a losing battle, the Redmond company will reportedly position this device as creating a "new and disruptive" category.

Microsoft's long-rumored Surface device that can be folded in half has, well, surfaced yet again - this time via a leaked document from Microsoft.

Then, less than a month ago, Thurrot published info from reportedly leaked documents saying Andromeda could make an appearance as soon at this year, alongside Libra, a smaller, low-priced Surface, and Carmel, the next version of the Surface Pro.

Microsoft's Surface range could one day include a folding, dual-screen device. Insiders reveal that the company could pull the plug on the device at any stage like they did with the Surface Mini a few weeks before its release. Elsewhere, it is suggested that the device will "blur the lines between mobile and stationary computing". While the device is still being designed in secret, it apparently has a wraparound display that bridges the gap of the hinge when opened.

The report claims that current engineering samples of the new Surface product look similar to 3D concepts made by David Breyer (see above).

The motive of Microsoft Company behind building this secret device is responding in a unique way to the failures being faced with Windows Phone devices presently. Microsoft presently plans to launch Andromeda in 2018 along with other similar devices that will follow afterwards.
