Microsoft will hold its Build Conference in Seattle on May 7-May 9 and everyone expects to hear an announcement about the foldable Surface Phone. #mobilemagic
In recent months, the rumor mill has been making all kinds of claims about Andromeda, the codename for the Surface Phone in question, and most of them were backed up by a specific Microsoft patent.

Submitted in October 2014, the Microsoft patent described a phone capable of extending up to three times in order to adjust to the user’s needs. It essentially could function as a regular phone, a casual tablet for web browsing, and an extended tablet perfect for a day at the office.
The renders above are appealing, but seem to only show a phone capable of two different formations instead of three.
Regardless, we won’t have to wait too long as the Build Conference is right around the corner. Microsoft has been suspiciously quiet lately and hopefully, this is pointing to a big reveal in the coming days!
