The Surface Phone has been long-awaited by lots of Microsoft enthusiasts who are curious to get their hand on the brand new device to see how it works. We are all expecting it to hit the market by the end of the year, but recent Microsoft leaks suggest that the phone was unfortunately delayed and the project may even be cancelled.

Forbes reported that ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley suggested that this whole thing might have been triggered by the executive shake-up in Microsoft that led to a reset of the tech giant’s approach to services and software as well.

Tom Warren from The Verge also suggested that the Andromeda OS is not ready for launch just yet and without base OS, this means “no work to build up third-party app support. And with no app support, you can forget about reaching a wide user-base,” writes Forbes’ writer Ewan Spence.

Everybody confirms the delay

Many tech journalists confirmed this piece of news. For example, Zac Bowden confirmed the delay of the phone as well: “Microsoft has delayed Andromeda’s release so that it has more time to work on Andromeda’s OS, but Andromeda itself has not been canceled, at least not yet.”

One reason for this delay may be the fact that Andromeda has no developer support. According to Bowden, Microsoft planned to address this by spending more time with developers and try to talk to them in order to get significant names on board with their apps that work on Andromeda in the Microsoft Store.

He also said that the project might be canceled after all at any time. he stated that we better hope that Microsoft finds a way to resolve the issues surrounding this software “before it’s too late.”

The sad thing is that the foldable phone may become less viable with the passing of time and this could end up as another project that fails to see daylight.
