For many, Andromeda is also seen as the long-rumoured Surface Phone, which would seem to jive with remarks from the leaked documents that claim Andromeda is Microsoft's response to its now defunct Windows Phone platform.
It will also be pocketable, according to The Verge, who obtained an internal document from the company.
According to the emails, it will be a "new and disruptive" product category, aiming to blur the lines between what we now consider as a PC and a mobile device, potentially alluding to more desktop-like capabilities being available. Microsoft allegedly described the Andromeda as "a new pocketable Surface device form factor" in this document, and that's about all we we can glean from The Verge's report.
Interestingly LG has been connected with Microsoft in the past, with the Economic Times of Korea reporting in January that LG has secured Microsoft, amongst others for its new foldable displays for smartphones and tablets. Microsoft has apparently been testing stylus input as well, which makes sense for a device that looks like a book when folded over.
Microsoft is not the only company that is working on dual-screen/flexible display devices. Although there is a lot of anticipation around Andromeda - Microsoft debuted the concept initially as part of its Courier project almost a decade ago - Microsoft isn't the only one rumored to be working on dual-screened devices.
Andromeda will have a wraparound display that seamlessly covers 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).
