Windows 10X

The new version of Windows 10 designed for dual-screen devices, Windows 10X, will be launching in the fall of 2020, Microsoft said.

The company touted capabilities such as taking notes on one screen and reviewing a project proposal on the other screen while in transit.

"For our commercial customers, we think this experience appeals to mobile professionals who want a device that can keep up when they’re on the go," Microsoft said in a blog post. "We see these people looking at multiple charts and data at the same time to study complex problems or viewing a presentation on one screen while on a call and seeing the meeting participants in full video on the other, or having a reference article open while commenting on a document."

Microsoft also promised there will be "practically no learning curve" for users of Windows 10X.

"The navigation and functionality will feel familiar and a Windows 10X PC will feel like a natural member of today’s Windows 10 family," the company said in the post.

The operating system also features advancements in core Windows technology to "optimize it for flexible postures and more mobile use," Microsoft said. For instance, the operating system is focused on enabling strong battery life across two screens, with the ability "to manage the battery effect of our huge catalog of Windows apps, whether they were written in the last month or five years ago," the company said.

Along with the Surface Neo, Windows 10X will be available on devices from HP Inc., Dell, Lenovo and Asus. "The first wave of devices will vary in size, design and specs, and be powered by Intel," Microsoft said.
