Microsoft planning small foldable Surface with Intel 10nm SoC to launch in 2020 | Report

24 June 2019 0

There have been several reports on Microsoft’s foldable device but nothing has come out as substantial yet. There aren’t frequent speculations on the same but seasonal reports have at least managed to convey that Microsoft has such a device in the works. Now, a new report coming from the Forbes citing Jeff Lin, Associate Director, Consumer Electronics at IHS Markit isn’t stating something different but it does bring some other solid details as well.

Lin further citing the “supply chain info” states that Microsoft is planning a small foldable Surface device which could get unveiled in the first half of next year. This foldable device is said to have two 9-inch screens with a 4:3 aspect ratio. Other crucial details shared with Forbes include Windows 10 OS new version which is WCOS (Windows Core OS) for dual display UI.

The analyst further says that Microsoft’s new Surface model will use Intel’s 10nm system-on-a-chip called Lakefield and will feature always-on connectivity like LTE or even 5G. Another interesting detail about this speculated foldable Surface device is Android apps support, which means it will run Android apps, something Microsoft users will be delighted to have. It’s assumed that the support for Android apps comes to deal with the potential lack of apps optimized for a dual-screen Windows device.

The report also says the device will also run the “iCloud service” in Windows 10. These details are coming far too early, so take them with a pinch of salt. Also, according to the report, Microsoft is still under planning process which is subject to change anytime.
