Microsoft is adopting Windows for foldable devices | Report

17 January 2019 2

Microsoft is reportedly adopting Windows to work on foldable devices. Sources familiar with the matter have told this to The Verge. However, it’s not surprising to note, since we recently got to know about a Windows 10 build that has been in the making for the foldable devices, thanks to BuildFeed who has been revealing Microsoft plans on the Windows builds for so long now. So, this is more or less comes as corroboration and a good possibility that the device is launching this year.

Together with this, the publication has also been told that dual-screen hardware is a big investment area for both Windows and Surface and the company is working towards it.

Microsoft has been experimenting with its own hardware with dual-screens codenamed Andromeda.

Most of this work is related to Microsoft’s Composable Shell (C-Shell) and Windows Core OS, which is a more modular version of the existing Windows Shell. The latter has only appeared on devices like the Surface Hub 2 so far, so we are interested to see how it’s going to be implemented in the rumored dual-screen Surface devices.
