Microsoft has reportedly started showing off its upcoming Surface hardware internally to employees. The Verge is reporting that the company has recently shown off its upcoming dual-screen Surface device to employees part of its devices team.
Employees apparently formed long lines to get a look at the new Surface device and were able to see a sizzle video of new Surface devices, as well as the new dual-screen device. Details about the new dual-screen device remain unknown, though we do know that the device will pave the way for a bunch of new dual-screen devices from other Windows device makers. The device is also powered by Microsoft’s new stripped-down version of Windows called Windows Lite, and it will be one of the first devices to ship with Windows Lite if it does make it to the public.
The device has been codenamed Centaurus internally, and it’s essentially a bigger version of Microsoft’s original, pocketable Andromeda device. Andromeda’s development has been halted in favour of Centaurus, as we have known in the past. As for Centaurus, we could see the device launch for the public within the next 6 months.
The Verge reports that Microsoft has also shown off a working version of its upcoming game-streaming service xCloud, which it will show off at E3 on Sunday. The company is also apparently working on a new version of Microsoft Teams “for life” that focuses on friends and family, which will be more of a consumer-oriented version of Teams that can compete with services like WhatsApp.
