Users are extremely excited about the upcoming dual-screen devices from Microsoft called the Surface Duo and Surface Neo.
However, the hardware aspect shouldn’t be the only thing that should get them excited, despite all the cool features these devices will reportedly boast.
It appears that Microsoft is designing a specialized OS for these dual-screen devices, and it will be called Windows 10X. It’s a new Windows operating system that will probably come to all devices one day.
The OS is meant to feel different and behave differently as well, and new footage about the various components continue to emerge.
The sleek design got users talking
In a Twitter post, images were revealed showing off he new Music control UI will look on Windows 10x
The design is quite minimalist yet with a modern feel, while UI elements such as buttons are well-rounded and spread apart. This is a perfect design for a device you’ll most likely control via the touchscreen.
Public interest was instantly sparked, as many users announced how pleased they were with the design. In fact, some of them went on and added that:
Everything about 10X makes the wait for them to potentially announce a rollout to more device types all the much harder! A Windows that has really internalised lessons learned from newer systems sounds fantastic.
Whether this image leak was intentional or not, it seems that it did a great deal of good for the sale’s potential of the Microsoft Neo and Duo. This is because users are now even more excited to get their hands on the new devices:
I personally can’t wait to get my hands on the surface neo and duo. Just from the point of view of an avid book reader and tech nerd, they look like they’re going to be a joy to use.
If this concept has got you eager to test out the device, remember that you can now test apps for the Surface Neo using an emulator provided by Microsoft.
