Gregory Bryant, Intel’s senior vice president of client
computing said in an interview that the dual-screen, foldable
or bendable devices are coming this year. It’s only a
matter of time before we see
dual-screen Windows 10 laptops emerge in force, and it’s
likely that the dual-screen Windows 10 devices will be running
on Intel’s processor.
At Computex 2018, we already caught a glimpse of
Intel Tiger Rapids, ASUS
Precog and Lenovo
Yoga Book 2 with the dual-screen setup that can be used in
different modes including tablet and laptop.
Microsoft’s next mobile device Andromeda is
also said to be a foldable device with dual-screen and
With the Tiger Rapids prototype, Intel is laying the
groundwork for the innovative devices, and it’s supposed to
serve as a blueprint of sorts for the company’s hardware
Intel has been working on the concept for around two years now,
and Gregory Bryant, Intel’s senior vice president of
client computing expect foldable displays, bendable, devices
“that fit in your purse” to hit the store later this year, and
it’s likely that these devices be will be running on Intel
These new devices could be yours by the end of the year.
“You’re going to see secondary displays, you’re going to see
other [ways] of interacting with that [PC] platform,” he said
in an interview.
“You’ll probably see foldable displays, you’ll see things that
are bendable, you’ll see things that fit in your purse. One of
the most obvious things you’ll see is things that just don’t
look like the traditional or legacy PC.”
We’re going to see devices with bendable and foldable displays
later this year. Such devices will create a new form factor
that fit the work that you’re trying to do.
It sounds too good to be true, but the reality is that the
Intel Tiger Rapids is not meant as a gimmick, and the chipmaker
is serious about such a project.
This new form factor might not be for everyone and it doesn’t
have to be. A device with dual-screen, always-on LTE, pen
support is indeed going to be a good stroke for those who want
a convertible laptop or a clamshell notebook.
