Surface Centaurus dual-screen laptop secretly shown off by Microsoft

Is this Microsoft’s big bet on a dual-screen Surface Microsoft Reportedly Showing Off Dual-Screen Surface Internally

In a private event for its employees, Microsoft shared a video presentation where it revealed the prototype of its new dual-screen laptop.

These days, the company is all about being more open and transparent, as well as getting and considering feedback, so perhaps the latter is part of the aim here, too: to get some wider reaction on the initial incarnation of Centaurus.

Microsoft has reportedly started to test the device, titled Centaurus for the time being, with employees - allowing them to play with it and use it meaning that the company could be set to start releasing these in the near future. Reports from earlier in 2018 indicated that Microsoft was working on a dual-screen smartphone called Andromeda, a project that was temporarily halted in favor of developing Centaurus. Of course, it's no secret Microsoft has been working on its Surface dual-screen (codenamed Centaurus) for at least two years.

The project bears similarities to the Copper Harbor dual-screen concept tablets demonstrated by Intel in October of a year ago, and Microsoft is said to be working closely with Intel on Centaurus.

Similarly, Centaurus is intended as the forefunner of a line of dual-screen tablet/laptop hybrids, reports said. The report also noted that the company plans to unveil more details about xCloud and public trials at the company's 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event on Sunday, June 9.
