We already know that Microsoft and the partners are working on
foldable devices with Windows 10, but a report yesterday
claimed that Intel is also working on a similar prototype. We
know that
dual-screen Windows 10 PCs is the next big thing, and it
would create a new category of 2-in-1s.

Intel Tiger Rapids is a prototype of a folding Windows 10
PC, and it appears to be as innovative as the rumoured
Microsoft Andromeda. Intel’s prototype Windows 10 device would
inspire other OEMs to build similar devices with their
processor, and interestingly, Intel’s prototype can get 13-15
hours of battery life.

Intel Tiger Rapids comes with an interesting display
setup. The display on the right side uses electronic paper
and it comes with a 7.9-inch LCD display on the left side. Of
course, there’s also a hinge in between the two sides. The
hinge apparently makes the device foldable and modular.

The Tiger Rapids is powered by Intel’s Kaby Lake
processor. On the other hand, the SSD and RAM amount are
unknown.

A new video published on YouTube shows off
the Intel Tiger Rapids in action. It gives us a
closer look at the features of the Windows 10-powered
dual-screen PC. The device has necessary outputs
including USB C port for connectivity. Of course, it also
supports WiFi and other features that you may find on a
full-fledged laptop.

Intel is saying that the device can get 13-15 hours of battery
life.

At the same event, Intel also unveiled a traditional PC with
dual-screen setup and it’s an AI-based PC.

It’s an unnamed prototype device that can be used in
multiple orientations, and interestingly, the UI would
expand across both screens, for example, you’ll be able to use
the Microsoft Excel in full screen as the app expands
across to both displays. The AI technology will predict where
exactly you’ll want a keyboard to appear. You’ll be also able
to use the device in tent mode.

It’s just a prototype device, and of course, Intel won’t bring
the prototypes to market themselves. The chipmaker Intel
was working on the prototype devices since 2015 and the
chipmaker will be providing the design concept to select
partners.
