Microsoft plans to launch a foldable Surface laptop-tablet hybrid in the first half of 2020, IHS Markit consumer electronics associate director Jeff Lin told Forbes.
The upcoming device will reportedly sport a pair of 9-inch screens, both of which will have a 4:3 aspect ratio.
According to the report, the foldable Microsoft Surface will run Windows Core OS and could also support Android applications to extend the selection of apps optimised for dual-display devices.
Microsoft is also planning to include Intel’s 10nm Lakefield system-on-chip in the device, which is expected to support LTE or 5G connectivity.
The company teased its upcoming dual-screen foldable surface earlier this month, allowing employees to try out a prototype version of the hardware.
