According to reports, the dual-screen foldable device from
Redmond Giant will be powered by an Intel 10nm Lakefield SoC, a
new processor that has been designed to deliver stable and
better performance. Intel Lakefield comes with more than one
type of CPU and it’s packed with integrated memory.
It also comes with integrated wireless connectivity and I/O
interface. Many different components are built into the
Lakefield chip to create a better-rounded system.
Microsoft’s dual-screen Windows Core OS device will feature two
9-inch screens with a 4:3 aspect ratio.
The 9-inch display will have a resolution of 1440×1920 pixels
and a pixel density of 267. Interestingly, Microsoft is also
preparing a ‘Book Mode’ user interface and demand forecast is
30,000 to 40,000 units, according to new
information by IHS Markit.
IHS Markit has also shared a concept image that shows off the
device’s display specs and expected design.
The hardware specs have come from “supply chain info” and other
information aren’t known at the moment.
The initial report revealed that Microsoft’s dual-screen device
will be able to run Android apps on top of
Windows Core OS, a lightweight and modern operating system
for dual-screen devices and new form factors.
Samsung, one of the early adopters of the foldable mobile
business, recently delayed its Galaxy X due to technical
issues. Microsoft might be doing the right stunt to take its
time and deliver the best foldable device.
