Microsoft hasn’t given confirmation that they are working on the Microsoft Surface phone but there has been plenty of speculation that they are going just that. No one other than Microsoft knows what they will do in the future, however one thing that is sure is that they will launch a new handset.
Patent files from Microsoft suggest that the new Microsoft phone could arrive with a foldable design. From the images we have seen they are working on a device offering a flexible hinge and display, so that the handset could swap from being a phone to a tablet.
Microsoft does put in many patents though and some in the past haven’t been used to date, so this doesn’t mean that they will use this one. However, the idea is a very interesting one.
If Microsoft wants to grab the attention away from Samsung and Apple they are going to have to come up with something good for the Microsoft Surface phone.
