Microsoft executive Panay hints that LG Display will be supplying the panels for the Surface Phone

As we told you earlier today, a leaked internal Microsoft document indicates that the Andromeda project is indeed a pocketable Surface device that will be "new and disruptive." More and more, it really does seem that this device will be the mythical Surface Phone that Microsoft and Windows fans have long been hoping for. And Surface chief Panos Panay sent out a tweet that adds more fuel to the fire.

The tweet disseminated by Panos hints that LG Display will be the source of the dual panels on the Surface Phone. A picture attached to the tweet shows a hinged photo frame with room for two images, one on each side of the hinge. In other words, this is a very rough idea of what the Surface Phone will look like in tablet mode. On one side is a caricature of Panos that was a present given to the executive by LG Display. On the other side is a photo of a golfing foursome that includes Panay (second from left).

Back in January, there was talk that Microsoft is one of the manufacturers that will depend on LG Display for foldable screens. The Surface Phone is expected to be unveiled later this year, powered by a powerful Snapdragon chip.
