Microsoft had planned to release the Surface Neo dual-screen device in October 2020 in a bid to get good sales during the holiday shopping season. However, ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley said recently: We may not be able to see any Windows 10X devices this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 disease. But there are also reports that even without a new corona virus crisis, surface dual-screen device development progress is far less than expected.

Another possible reason is that Microsoft may first use Windows 10X on more traditional flip or deformed books, even if the system is specifically designed for dual-screen applications.
However, a new report from Mary Jo Foley shows that Panos Panay, the head of the department, told the internal team today that Windows 10X will not be released this year.
As Microsoft’s OEM partner, only Lenovo has announced the ThinkPad X1 Fold. Earlier this year, however, the company had expected windows 10X to be delayed.
The ThinkPad X1 Fold, pre-installed for Windows 10 Pro, is expected to be released this summer. As for the Windows 10X version, it’s clear that the ticket has been skipped to the far the future.
For users, while Windows 10X introduces many interesting features, they don’t have much to do with dual screens.
On the outside, Windows 10X is more likely to be in a tablet scenario, but other changes may be on the regular desktop version of the Windows 10 operating system at the same time.
