If you thought that Microsoft is the only tech giant interested in foldable devices, guess again because the tech company is not the only manufacturer that’s exploring the development of a foldable device running Windows 10. Samsung and Huawei are also on the verge of launching a foldable smartphone in the near future, and more recently, rumors claim that Dell could also launch something similar to Microsoft’s device running on Andromeda.

Dell’s dual-screen system is codenamed Januss

Januss is a reference to the Roman god which had two faces. Dell’s dual-screen device could be powered by a brand new processor manufactured by Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 850.

This device running Windows 10 seems to have been in the works since the summer of 2017. Unfortunately, details regarding design and features are not available at the moment.

Microsoft’s Andromeda device popped up in more patents

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella stated more than once in the past that the tech giant was working on a revolutionary device and the Andromeda gadget could be the one. It still remains to be seen whether Redmond will apply the same strategy that it used for the original Surface line for the new device category.

The strategy we’re referring to involves creating a reference device to inspire more OEMs to do the same thing even better. One example that worked out successfully is the Surface Pro running Windows 8. On the other hand, PC OEMs have ditched Windows RT and so did Microsoft after the Surface 2.

Creating a new device category can be quite a challenging thing, and wearables are the best example. We still have to wait some more to see whether Microsoft and the company’s partners will be able to make a foldable device and if such devices would have the ability to replace our smartphones.
