Microsoft’s Foldable PC will run Android apps on Windows Core OS 17?
A new rumor from Forbes claims that the next Microsoft’s Surface Foldable PC, which is reported in several rumors codenamed Centaurus, will be able to run Android applications.
Also, the report also provides some specifications, including the screen size, possible CPU, and the Windows Core OS operating system. According to Forbes, Microsoft’s Foldable Surface PC will have two 9-inch screens with a 4: 3 aspect ratio along with an Intel 10 nm Lakefield processor.
So, unlike what was presented by Lenovo, it will not have a flexible screen, it will actually be two displays. In addition to legacy Windows programs and games, this device would have the differential running Android applications.
All this over the next operating system of the company, which is being called Windows Core OS. Microsoft has tried to do this in previous builds of Windows Phone but never made it available to the end consumer.
Finally, Forbes notes that the device is expected to start shipping sometime in the first half of 2020, so, but once, it does not look like we’ll get it on this year. The rumor does not mention when an announcement will happen, but Windows Central claims it may appear at a hardware event in October later this year, possibly as a teaser, or a full ad along with Windows Lite.
Intel recently announced an exciting new feature under this concept: Centaurs is on its way and will be one of the first Windows Lite devices to start shipping. Windows Lite is a Windows Core OS Shell along with other editions of Windows Core OS running on HoloLens 2, Surface Hub 2X, and the next generation Xbox.
Windows Core OS is a new and modern version of Windows, with many no-good Windows components destroyed in favor of performance, fluidity and unique user experiences. Will the two-screen PCs take off? Android Apps on Windows? What do you think?
