Earlier this month, Surface Go (Libra) was announced, which is an inexpensive tablet designed to compete with market leaders — Apple and Samsung. The product, which is equipped with not the most powerful dual-core Pentium Gold 4415Y processor and running on the light version of Windows 10, should go on sale in early August at a price of $ 399.
The Andromeda project is in the form of smartphone with the functions of a folding PDA (Surface phone), which should replace a full-fledged PC for users. In July this year, there was information that this device can be completely canceled because of the departure of one of the key figures of Microsoft — Terry Myerson from the company. Sources report that the software and hardware components will not be able to attract enough consumers, and the release of this device will have to be postponed, despite the fact that in Microsoft the folding gadget is considered to be revolutionary.
Earlier, Microsoft already had experience in the production of Lumia smartphones, which has not gained a broad audience. So that the company will be able to bring a really strong player to the smart device market this time, developers have to wait with the announcement, which is scheduled for the end of 2019.
