A petition to save Microsoft's long-rumored and possibly delayed Andromeda "Surface Phone" device has already been started, and has amassed over 3,000 supporters in the last couple of days.
New APIs added in the latest build released to Insiders show Microsoft is adding features enabling its OS to run on devices featuring 360-degree rotation, the most likely candidate being Andromeda.
In the latest preview build of the Windows 10 SDK released earlier this week, there are a number of references to Andromeda, the codename for Microsoft's rumored foldable device and its OS.
Codenamed Polaris, this version of Windows will be powered by the Windows Core OS that forms the foundation of Andromeda OS, and will strip all legacy components in favour of the UWP platform.
According to a new report, Microsoft is starting to test out apps for its rumored Andromeda OS in the Microsoft Store. They show up under the codename '8828080' as an additional platform.
An internal initiative dubbed Andromeda OS seeks to transform Windows 10 into a much more modular platform, componentizing the operating system and allowing for improved adaptability across devices.
