Microsoft confirms the launch of the modular version of Windows 10 to regular, single-screen laptops and notebooks
The global pandemic delays the launches of Surface Neo and other dual-screen PCs. The dual-screen Windows devices are apparently off the table for 2020 and Microsoft says it has found a new home for its modular Windows 10X.
After the delay of the Surface New and some dual-screen PC, the development of Windows 10X and two-in-ones has become the new priority. Windows 10X laptops will be shipped with the help of the Redmond firm and OEMs, but it’s not yet clear when Windows 10X will arrive on existing and new hardware.
Windows 10S with a low-cost single screen could be replaced by Windows 10X and Microsoft will still focus on Windows 10 for power users, gamers, and workstations. Windows 10X is designed to be locked down, so you can only run trusted apps in the OS and you cannot tweak registry or modify the system files. Like ChromeOS, updates will take place quickly in the background.
The Windows 10x runs Win32, UWP, and PWAs within own virtualized container, protecting the OS and your data. With single-screen devices support, Microsoft could finally position Windows 10X as a Chrome OS competitor, something it had initially envisioned when Windows 10 in S mode was released.
Features of Windows 10x
- New User Experience
- New Start Menu
- New Taskbar
- New Action Center
- New set up experience
- Compose mode
- Legacy app support
- Improved Windows update
- Dynamic Wallpapers
These are few features which are been leaked, we can predict some more features related to Ram consumption and Security. We will inform you of all the remaining features as soon as we will get to know.
Microsoft has not yet shared any details of the launch, but it is probably delayed from its previous December release date due to the Pandemic situation around the globe. Stay Tuned on Android Rookies to know the further announcements on the Modular Windows 10 version.
