Microsoft’s latest move suggests Surface Neo could be very far away

Surface Neo delayed

On October 2, 2019, Microsoft announced four new Surface
products – Surface Pro 7, Surface Laptop 3, Surface Duo, and
Surface Neo. While Surface Pro, Laptop, and Duo are now
available for purchase, Microsoft has pushed pack the launch of
the Surface Neo until at least 2022.

The launch of Microsoft’s highly-anticipated Surface Neo with
Windows 10X is starting to feel like a desert mirage. Windows
10X had been expected to be finalized in the Spring of 2020,
but the launch was delayed due to the
performance issues with Win32 apps emulation.

Some rumours pointed to a potential late 2020 unveiling of
Windows 10X and Surface Neo, but the launch was scrapped again
due to the world health crisis.

Now,
we’re looking at a Spring 2021 (Q3/Q4) launch for Windows
10X, but there’s a catch – the OS won’t arrive on
dual-screen hardware for another year.

In 2021,
Microsoft is planning to launch Windows 10X for single-screen
devices only, such as a laptop or 2-in-1

I and others have heard from sources that Windows 10X for
dual-screen hardware will be ready in 2022. Surface Neo or a
similar device will also launch in 2022.

In the latest move that further confirms our theory, Microsoft
has quietly deleted the Surface Neo product page from its
website. If you go to the Surface Neo product page, you’ll be
redirected to Microsoft’s Surface homepage.

In addition,
Microsoft has also removed promotional videos from YouTube
and its website, but you can still find the videos uploaded by
independent creators.

This is bad news if you’ve been waiting for a dual-screen
Surface that runs Windows 10X, a modular operating system.

Amid all the rumours that the Surface Neo is getting pushed
back for at least one year, there’s never been a proper
explanation for why the product hasn’t been launched yet.

While some believe it’s due to the health and economic crisis,
others blame Windows 10X compatibility issues.

It’s worth noting that Microsoft hasn’t given up on the idea of
dual-screen Windows devices yet, so the Surface Neo could still
show up sooner rather than later, but it’s unlikely to be the
same hardware as the device could undergo significant
improvements before 2022 launch.
