Microsoft may launch modular Surface tablet with detachable dual screen

In recent weeks, some information about the Surface Duo, a foldable tablet in production by Microsoft, has been released. According to some information, Bill Gates’ company may launch the device even before the arrival of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold 2, to attract more consumers to its product.

So far the device has not been released, but there are still rumors that indicate possible specifications and functions of the device. According to some rumors, it may have an improved multi-tasking mode, with the possibility of opening several applications at the same time.

However, despite dedicating a lot to this product, apparently the Surface Duo is not the only project on Microsoft’s table. That’s because, according to a patent registered by the company, it works on a new modular Surface with detachable dual screen.

According to the images published, the screens can be used both separately and together. The patent photos also show that the two panels will be able to connect magnetically.

This magnetic mechanism would still allow the two parts of the Surface to be rotated, so that the two screens can be completely joined, closing the mobile device or even leaving it in a 90 degree position, to use it as a notebook.

Microsoft also points out that the modular system of this possible Surface can be useful to prevent dust or dirt from entering the gap between the two screens, as it is possible to happen in some folding devices and that, even, it was a big problem in the first units of the Galaxy Fold released for testing.

As it is only a patent registration, there is still no official information about its launch or even if this project will be put on paper. However, it is interesting to know that the company is already working on a new project for the tablet line in addition to the launch of the Surface Duo.
