Microsoft's rumored Andromeda device is all the talk in 2018. It's supposedly Microsoft's upcoming mobile handset that features a foldable design with two screens, and runs Windows 10. It's also supposed to have telephony capabilities, meaning you'll be able to make calls and send texts with it, even though it's not a smartphone. But, does Andromeda need that kind of functionality to be successful?
The answer is yes. The whole point of Andromeda is for it to be a hybrid that creates a new category of product that is truly mobile. You should be able to take this device out with you, and no have to bring any other device. It's your smartphone, tablet, and PC all in one.
Now, the next important question is does it need to have an incredible camera? The answer is not really. While it would be nice, I'll still be buying one even if it had no cameras at all. I know for a fact that it will have cameras, but I doubt they'll be rivalling that of the Google Pixel 2 or Apple iPhone X. It'll be a good enough camera, but it won't be mind-blowing.
Instead, I believe some of the capabilities of the camera will be where this device impresses. Things like 3D scanning, being able to use multiple cameras at once for group Skype calling, and more, may all be on the cards. Now, I know there are people out there who won't buy a device if it doesn't have the best camera, and that's unfortunate because Andromeda likely won't have the best camera out there. It'll be good, but not the best.
