Previously reportedOriginally designed for dual-display devices (such as the Surface Neo), Windows 10X will be released in 2021. And not on flagship gadgets with an innovative form factor like “Siamese” Surface Neo, but on affordable single-screen laptops designed to compete in the educational market with devices running on Chrome OS (see screenshot for comparison below).
Chrome OS interface
It is the Google operating system that most of all resembles the real Windows 10X interface, revealed by leaks: the “Start” button and the menu of the same name are located not at the left edge of the screen, as in ordinary Windows 10, but in the middle. The first thing the user sees when opening the menu is a search bar offering “Find on the Internet or on a device”. The exact same element, located in a similar way, is also found in Chrome OS.
Windows 10X interface
Another difference between Windows 10X and the usual “dozen” is how the quick settings panel is designed. It received a “floating” design with rounded corners and resembles similar interface elements of mobile operating systems. Experts speculate that the look and feel of Windows 10X before its release – probably this spring – won’t change.
