Years later, we got wind of an Andromeda project which apparently was the name for Microsoft’s foldable Surface Phone.
We learned more details recently about the handset, which suggested Microsoft hasn’t given up on the idea of inventing a new Windows-based form factor, and a new report says that’s indeed the case. The company still wants to make a Surface Phone, but the device will not be launched this year.
