Microsoft and Intel may be working together on a new dual-screen Surface PC that runs Microsoft’s new modern Windows Core OS and is designed to kickstart a new form factor of devices for Windows.
Microsoft is working closely with Intel on a new dual-screen Surface device powered by Windows Core OS that’s similar to Intel’s Copper Harbor prototype that was revealed earlier this year. Codenamed “Centaurus,” this device is akin to Microsoft’s canceled Courier project, which saw the company conceptualize the idea of a digital journal in 2010. Centaurus marks the second dual-screen device we believe Microsoft is currently working on internally, the first of which is codenamed “Andromeda.”
What we know about Surface ‘Centaurus’
According to my sources, Microsoft has been working on Centaurus for about a year now and is hoping to announce the device in the fall of 2019. It is supposed to be the first of what Microsoft calls a dual-screen 2-in-1, a new device form factor for Windows 10 that utilizes two screens for productivity, inking, and more.
