Microsoft Fans Are Taking Things On Their Own Hands — Surface Phone

Microsoft

Although the company hasn't confirmed anything or made an official announcement yet; the Surface chief Panos Panay recently teased it with a clever tweet. Using a clever mechanism that features a display mounted on a hinge, the device, which is widely rumored to be the Surface Phone, would be able to fold in and out to take various forms and adopt different functionalities.

Over 1800 signatures were put on the petition within 22 hours of it going live.

There have been reports that the tech giant was rethinking its Surface Phone strategy.

All the fans of Windows phone want Microsoft to release the Surface Phone or "Surface Andromeda Phone Project" that has been leaking out lately with the phone screen that can turn into a tablet, the petition read.

While we've had dual-screen devices and two-in-one tablets that act as a laptop, Andromeda could perhaps break new ground with its proposed ability to act as a smartphone, tablet and potential mini-PC. "I myself wouldn't mind paying between $799-$999 for this phone if it happened and looked like the pictures that we have seen from those leaks".

According to a report on TheVerge, Microsoft Surface Phone could have disrupted the smartphone segment with unique dual-screen foldable design and a new version of its Windows OS.

The legitimacy of the recent rumor about the project being closed down is unknown. Users around the globe have started a petition urging Microsoft to make the device a reality. The petition serves as an indicator that fans are interested in the product and that Microsoft should not cancel the release.

A person named Zachary Hinski chose to start a petition on Change.org to make Microsoft reconsider its decision and claimed that he was ready to pay $799-999 (Rs 55,000-69,000) for the device if it looked anything like its leaked photos. If you'd like to see the Andromeda Project come to life, go ahead and sign the petition.
