This is Microsoft's secret folding Surface handheld, according to a report

The Next Microsoft Surface May Fit in Your Pocket Microsoft’s pocketable Surface device is a bold gamble after the failure of Windows Phone

Thurrott.com's Brad Sams previously reported the "Andromeda" device was scheduled to be released in 2018 - this year.

Rumors of a dual-screen Surface have been kicking around for a little bit, but here's a surprising new detail: It's built for your pocket. Microsoft has also reportedly been working on stylus input for the device, so that users can unfold it and write in it like a book.

Microsoft is, understandably, not commenting on the leaks, but the documents - seen by the Verge - show that the company has been busily working away to create a "new and disruptive" category of device.

Just what is Microsoft planning next for its Surface line of hardware?

Andromeda is expected to be officially revealed by Microsoft this year. However there could be a new Surface device that Microsoft has yet to announce, according to a leaked email obtained by The Verge.

Nervy Croatia beat dogged Denmark on penalties
Croatia are expected to make wholesale changes to their starting line up for their World Cup Round of 16 tie against Denmark . Kasper Schmeichel - With 2 clean sheets in 3 matches, Schmeichel has already stamped his authority on this side.

Even though Microsoft has maintained a pin drop silence on the Surface Phone, the company's Corporate Vice President of Devices, Panos Panay has accidentally teased the device on Twitter. It seems the brand is going to pitch it as a pocketable Surface device.

By all indications, Andromeda will try to mitigate that design problem with a display that wraps around the gap of the hinge.

With two rumored screens, Microsoft may be positioning its highly anticipated foldable PC as the ultimate convertible computing device.

The report claims that current engineering samples of the new Surface product look similar to 3D concepts made by David Breyer (see above). Microsoft's testing SwiftKey integration to make it easier to type on glass, and the company is bringing inking support to the Windows 10 Mail and Calendar apps, a move that may make a dual-screen device more appealing to paper planner addicts.
