One of the market trends is to count on devices with a larger screen area. This leads us to say that the terminals that we used to call phablets, which opened the legendary Samsung Galaxy Note, are camouflaged between the rest of the terminals.
The screens have grown. Each time we want bigger screens, which has led to the emergence of trends such as phones with very thin frames (not without frames). A tendency that supposes to grow in size and therefore to cause a loss of usability.
The solution is to have a screen that can be folded or folded and that is the future that we are called to see. We have seen an attempt of the hand of ZTE with the Axon M and other brands like Microsoft also already have their own developments on the desktop.
In the case of the Redmond, the future with folding screen comes in tablet format. A project that by now is known with the codename of “Andromeda” and would come to define a tablet that under Windows 10 would stand out by offering the ability to fold by offering two screens.
In this way, when folded, the size would be significantly reduced and we could use it as a phone, or at least that might be the idea because it would arrive ready to make or receive calls and telephone capabilities. A Surface Phone? We do not know anything, the only thing we have in hand are the statements that we read and talked about Microsoft’s intention to open their own way with a new typology of devices totally new.
A device with the Surface seal that could then be replicated by traditional Microsoft partners in case of success. And we remember that in Redmond already have experience with this type of solutions because the Microsoft Courier that we saw in 2009 was a product ahead of its time that nevertheless finally was in the ink, although not without before leaving the basis for future development.
