Dell reportedly cooking up a dual-screen device with Windows 10 on ARM
Microsoft, Samsung, and Huawei are all rumored to be working on foldable devices, but now Dell may be throwing its hat into the ring as well.
If you live in the Microsoft bubble, one of the most hotly rumored devices is Microsoft's Andromeda project, a foldable dual-screen device that the company has been speculated to be working on for some time. Microsoft certainly isn't alone in its efforts, as, most notably, Samsung has been reported to be cooking up something similar for months.
According to the latest rumor, however, Dell may be getting ready to throw its hat in the ring as well.
German blog WinFuture.de now reports that Dell is working on a dual-screen device under the codename "Januss." According to the report, Januss has been in the works since last summer and is expected to run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform. Other tidbits the device is rumored to include are USB-C, several cameras, and LTE connectivity.
The report doesn't cite any potential release timeframe and, ultimately, the prototype device Dell is said to be working on may stay in the prototype stage without an eventual release. Still, it would certainly make sense that, if Microsoft is indeed working on a dual-screen device, it would want its hardware partners in on the action, too. After all, Windows 10 on ARM seems to be a focus for Microsoft going forward, and Dell's rumored device would be another on the market.
