Microsoft had exited the smartphone business a couple of years back. According to a new report by Windows Latest website, Microsoft is “actively working on a new line of phones”. Interestingly, these Microsoft smartphones 2018 could reportedly run Android operating system. The report quoted a Microsoft Store employee who revealed this to the author on the condition of anonymity. So what are the features of Microsoft Smartphone 2018?
As far as the Windows 10 Mobile operating system is concerned, Microsoft hasn’t rolled out any significant update within the past one year. The report claims that these phones will not be a part of the Lumia series. However, it doesn’t confirm as to whether the Surface team is developing these phones. So, apart from a Microsoft Store employee claiming that the engineers of the software giant are working on Android smartphones. Which could be launched in 2019, there is very little information to add to its credibility.
In another news, Microsoft is reportedly working on launching its “Movies & TV” app for Android and iOS. For those unaware, the app is only available on Windows-based platforms like Windows 10 PC, Xbox, and Windows 10 Mobile. Last year, Microsoft had shut down its Groove Music service after announcing a partnership with the music streaming platform Spotify.
