A Windows 10 build for foldable devices has recently surfaced online. The Windows 10 build (rs_shell_devices_foldable) was first spotted on the BuildFeed channel. The build strings rs_shell_devices_foldables.190111-1800 confirms that Microsoft has successfully compiled the first build of the upcoming Windows 10 SKU.

The latest BuildFeed’s tweet is an indicator that the forthcoming foldable devices will be running a new OS version tweaked for this type of devices.

Just because “foldable” moniker has been mentioned in the string, it is expected that the modular Windows Core OS won’t be limited to a specific model. A new family of devices will be powered by the much-awaited modular Windows Core OS.

Codenamed Andromeda, the project first surfaced last year in July. The original design was supposed to be a foldable PC that would be able to easily fit into the pockets of the users. However, the new design is now expected to be a larger device.  The upcoming flexible and lightweight version modular of Windows 10 is expected to be available to users later this year.

Notably, Google has already made it clear that the foldable or dual-screen devices will be natively supported by the Android OS. Following this announcement, it is yet to be seen what strategy will be adopted by Microsoft to take this idea forward.

BuildFeed has already faced the consequences of this announcement as the “ïnternal pressures” forced BuildFeed to shut down. The act has been confirmed by the founder of BuildFeed Tom Hounsell.

A three dimensional model of the phone that was revealed by the popular YouTube channel has recently impressed smartphone users. Microsoft is facing tough competition from the leading smartphone companies including Huawei, Apple and LG.

It would be interesting to see how Microsoft’s Andromeda foldable device will be competing against other devices. Microsoft has to attract a significant number of users to stay in the game of foldable smartphones.
