Late last night, we saw the leak of a few upcoming Surface devices in renders, but not only that, we heard of a dual-screen device coming from Microsoft. Now, some more information has been brought up, with leakster Evan Blass stating that the dual-screen device will run on a new version of Microsoft's OS called Windows 10X.
It's been long rumored that Microsoft is working on a new version of Windows which is more lightweight and can be more easily adapted to different form factors. Most recently, this version of the OS has been referred to as Windows Lite, but the actual name has yet to be confirmed - though this leak should be pretty accurate given Blass's track record.
It's currently unclear if Windows 10X is completely exclusive to foldable devices, or if the dual-screen Surface, known so far by the codename Centaurus, will simply be one of the first devices to be running on it. It's certainly possible that Microsoft will bring a more lightweight version of Windows to traditional form factors as well.
We're just shy of one day away from Microsoft's Surface event tomorrow, and with a slew of devices on the way, in addition to a new version of Windows, it's looking to be a pretty exciting one. We might also get a public release for Windows 10 19H2, which has been in testing in Release Preview for quite some time now.
