Microsoft Is Working On An Android Powered Device And Might Release It Any Soon



Amid growing news of Microsoft releasing a foldable dual screen device codenamed Andromeda, latest news from WindowsLatest however, suggests that the Redmond company is gearing up to release an Android powered smartphone.

According to a chat between WindowsLatest a Microsoft store employee who spoke on the condition of anonymity, claimed that the Microsoft engineering team were actively working on "a new line of phones".

"We  will be creating a new line of phones for Microsoft. It's like a new edition for Microsoft phones. It's gonna be powered by Android that's for sure," the Microsoft store agent said in the chat.

When WindowsLatest pressed on asking how authentic the information was, the agent said the information was very authentic but said that Microsoft won't be posting any official update for now and thus, wait for the progress of the work.


Though, this does not confirm that Microsoft will eventually release an Android powered smartphone, recent Android app release such as Microsoft Launcher and Edge browser has only add more fuel to the rumour. Apart from the apps, Microsoft has also launched many services for Android such as the Windows Timeline and Microsoft graph.

Microsoft stopped producing its mobile OS last year, with Windows 10 Mobile being its last major update. Ever since then, Microsoft has been releasing builds with security and bug fixes with no update or new extra features.

For now, this news has to be taken with a pinch of salt as Microsoft still has the Andromeda project on. Aside from that, the Microsoft employee didn't say anything regarding the specification or whatsoever.
