Details have emerged regarding Microsoft's rumored Surface phone, reportedly referred to as Andromeda. Apparently this device will run on ARM processors, and might be released as early as next year.
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.
According to purported Chinese leaks about Microsoft's rebooted mobile hardware, the device will be called Surface Mobile and may feature a built-in projector for a simulated desktop experience.
CShell - the adaptive user interface that Microsoft is developing to run across all Windows 10 devices - includes Start screen and Action Center changes, and improvements to the Continuum experience.
