Not much is known about the mythical Surface Phone. Yet, rumor has it that Microsoft is currently working on an interface for the phone that is pen friendly.

Evidence of truth in the rumor comes in the form of a reference to this type of shell discovered in Windows 10 build 17025, part of the Redstone 4 build currently making its way through the Insider program.

WalkingCat, a Microsoft watcher, posted on twitter that the reference is found in the 17025 Xaml stack, code-named AndromedaIt is speculated that the Redstone 4 from Microsoft will provide users with not just one but multiple shell composers.

In other words, Andromeda will be the first of many shells in the future. Furthermore, Andromeda will most likely be more than just a device. Rather, it will probably be a unique interface that offers numerous functions that have not been seen before from Microsoft.

According to WalkingCat, Andromeda will primarily be a note-taking device but will also offer additional features. Considering its primary function, the note-taking application will be probably be called Journal.

Andromeda is also rumored to be more of a foldable tablet instead of a phone. It isn’t supposed to replace the smartphone but rather is supposed to be a digital notebook that will fit in your pocket.

Nevertheless, with the number of rumors floating around, it still is not entirely certain what the device will be.

However, it is clear that the device will target specific markets instead of the average customer. Fortunately, the Surface Phone from Microsoft will most likely be released officially in 2018. Therefore, we will soon hear more information about the Redstone 4 and Andromeda.
