There are various opinions on the future of the Windows Mobile these days. Depending on who you’re discussing the subject with we are either close to or farther from the release mythical Surface Phone, while other voices are saying that the killing of Windows Mobile is part of the process of developing an Andromeda-powered PC running Windows 10. Still others don’t think the Surface Phone won’t ever exist because Windows Mobile is dead and buried.

A new Surface Phone concept design appears

Ryan Smalley designed a concept for the Surface Phone back in June based on various Microsoft patents. Smalley acknowledged the potential issues that come with foldable screens and updated the concept accordingly. Now, the device seems similar to two Galaxy Notes joined together with a hinge, featuring bezel-less screens to make the fold as unobtrusive as possible. Its camera, flash, and sensors are integrated into the front of the device without having to include a bezel to allow owners to use the handset as a mini clamshell laptop.

Smalley’s Surface Note would also feature input via the keyboard and the Surface Pen.

Considering that more and more OEMs are rapidly iterating on Microsoft’s ideas, perhaps the company should consider hurrying up with making its own plans real if it wants to make a point in this new area of the market.
