Recently, the Redmond-based company, Microsoft, presented the Surface Laptop 3, Surface Pro 7, and Surface Pro X. Along with these announcements, there came the revelation of Windows 10X. Microsoft has kept the secrecy over the new release. But, recently, many sources came out with some leaks regarding the new OS.
The new Windows 10X is designed explicitly for dual-screen devices, be them folding smartphones or computers.
“People are expecting more flexibility from their PCs—they want performant, highly flexible, fully capable and compatible devices that are at the same time delivered in a simple, sleek and, increasingly, mobile form factor. This new hardware requires an expression of Windows 10 that evolves to meet this opportunity. This is Windows 10X,” explained Eran Megiddo, Corporate Vice President at Windows and Education.
Windows 10X Details Revealed Via Recent Leaks
In comparison with the well-known Windows 10, Windows 10X comes with some changes and novelties. Among them, we have an improved Launcher, which “helps users start and resume tasks quickly.” The feat combines offline searches (on your PC) with online threads, helping users get the most helpful answers to their queries.
“This relatively static set of apps drives predictable views each time Launcher is opened and further assists in accelerating users with the use of muscle memory over time. And lastly, Recommended content is dynamically updated based on your most frequently and recently used apps, files, and websites. Jump back into your personal workflow without having to start from scratch,” said Eran Megiddo in the Microsoft’s official post on Windows 10X.
Different from Windows 10, Windows 10X brings some improved authentication and security measures. “Windows 10X will be available on dual-screen and foldable devices starting in the fall of 2020, in time for the holiday season. These will include both Microsoft Surface and devices from several Windows ecosystem partners, including ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo. The first wave of devices will vary in size, design, and specs, and be powered by Intel,” Eran Megiddo added.
