The report cited a company watcher stating,
The Redmond software giant is already working on a “mobile-type” device and, what’s more, this is already been spotted around campus.

We don’t currently know much about the device as stated above it is a “Mobile-type” device meaning, it could be a smartphone or a tablet. This comes as a shock as Microsoft has recently sold off Nokia to HMD Global.

The report mentions that the new mobile device is not being developed under the Surface division. The product is being developed under the supervision of Alex Kipman who is currently the head of Microsoft’s HoloLens project, this indicates that the new device will be utilising AR.

As per the report, It is being expected that this smartphone will be running the Windows 10 operating system on an ARM chip. It is also being claimed that the new redesigned operating system is extremely buggy and will need time to fix. Even if this alleged device was spotted at the Microsoft campus it still needs a lot of bug fixes and improvements. Due to the Operating System being extremely buggy, Microsoft might take its time in launching the phone in the market.
