The announcement of Microsoft Surface Neo: a folding tablet with two displays
10 years after the first information that Microsoft was working on a folding device with two displays appeared, the company finally introduced it. The novelty was called Surface Neo and its creation, the company sought to offer a product "that would correspond to the lifestyle, but at the same time make its owner more creative and productive."
The device weighs 1.5 kg, each side has a thickness of 5.6 mm and a weight of 655 grams. The company boasts that it managed to install some of the thinnest 9-inch LCD displays in the device. When the device is deployed, the diagonal of the two displays is 13.1 inches.
Both halves are connected using a hinge mechanism that rotates 360 degrees. Declared support for the SurfacePen stylus and keyboard, which are mounted on the back of the device with magnetic mounts. If desired, the keyboard can be placed on top of one of the screens or used separately, working simultaneously with two displays.
Inside there is an Intel chip from the Lakefield family, designed specifically for dual-screen devices. Surface Neo runs under the operating system Windows 10X, which is specially adapted to work with devices with two displays.
At this stage, this is only a prototype, and its commercial implementation will enter the market only by the end of next year.
