Windows 10X and Surface NEO have been postponed until next year due to the coronavirus epidemic

Windows 10X is Microsoft’s current focus. According to the original plan, Microsoft will launch the official version of Windows 10X by the end of the year, as well as the Microsoft Surface NEO dual-screen foldable device.

However, the latest ZDNet report said that these products have been delayed due to the coronavirus epidemic, and Microsoft’s internal calendar has temporarily removed plans for related products.

At the same time, third-party manufacturers such as Lenovo, Acer, Asus, and Dell will not launch types of equipment which run Windows 10X.

ZDNet obtained information from Microsoft insiders that Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay notified the hardware development team of the relevant news within the company.

The specific message is that Microsoft will not deliver a Microsoft Surface NEO dual-screen foldable device with a customized version of Windows 10X in 2020.

Microsoft’s original plan was to bring this device to market around Christmas, which means that the time to market for the product was delayed, and it may be released as soon as next spring.

In addition, ZDNet also emphasized that there are no plans to release foldable devices by Microsoft partners. For products already on the market, they also need to wait for updates next year.

The products listed here mainly refer to Lenovo’s foldable device. Since Windows 10X is not yet completed, the device is currently equipped with a Windows 10 version.
