Microsoft is set to host an event on October 2 in New York City. The expected Surface Laptop 3, Surface Pro 7, and Surface Book 3 as well as The Tech giant are rumored to show a dual screen surface device, codenamed Centaurus. The device is reportedly being developed for more than a year. Now, a German report discusses two new US patents. These were published by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and are related to the Microsoft Centaurs Foldable Device.
One of the patents features a hinge that can allow the device to move in a 360-degree arc. PhoneArena reports, “The Andromeda device was supposed to offer users five pre-defined positions, including closed, concave, convex, tent mode, and full. Some applications were to run on the device based on the orientation of the screen, and we could see something similar for the new device. ”
Another patent discusses the use of a magnetic stop. It is tipped to use magnets mounted inside multiple sides of the device. The Microsoft Centaurs foldable device is expected to be a laptop-to-tablet foldable device, unlike Andromeda, which was called the smartphone-to-tablet foldable.
