Microsoft could make AMD-powered Surface devices after falling out with Intel

Apart from the fact that Microsoft mogul Bill Gates regrets letting Google take Android OS for smartphones to a big league, everything around the brand is working in its favor.

The new Centaurus-named foldable Surface would have 2 x 9-inch 4:3 aspect ratio displays, and not a single foldable panel. For instance, Microsoft's Surface Pro devices typically include an LTE variant that ships later. While Microsoft may ideally use Snapdragon SCx8180 for devices like Surface Go that will not only bring good performance but also great battery life, it may surprise us with a foldable form-factor too.


Microsoft will continue to offer Intel chips in its laptops, so you can expect to see Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs in the next Pro and Laptop devices.

According to a new article from The Verge, however, it appears this may not be necessary as the company has a completely unexpected approach to solving this problem, in allowing the OS to run Android Apps instead. In addition to that, it is also important to point out that historically Microsoft has been zealous about the exclusivity of Windows as far as any device is concerned and perhaps this is another instance of the company ushering in a new culture altogether.


Also, there is evidence that the device can work in networks 5G. Windows Central "can confirm" Centaurus is "indeed an Intel device, and does feature two separate displays, not a single foldable display like found on the recently announced Lenovo foldable PC". The company is expected to unveil a foldable device very soon; however, Samsung and Huawei have by now showcased their foldable phones.

Oppo has finally unveiled the first ever under-screen camera for selfies, which was teased previously by both Oppo as well ...


OnePlus announced previous year that it is exploring products other than smartphones as well.
