Lately, we are seeing devices and prototypes that make use of two screens. In this line, today, we are struck by the prototype presented by Intel, a dual-screen PC, tablet-like mini-computer with Windows 10.

Intel Tiger Rapids dual-screen PC with Windows 10
The Tiger Rapids PC is based on a first 7.9-inch LCD screen connected by a hinge to a second screen of the same size.
Depending on the model, this second screen can be an electronic ink screen, so-called E-Ink, allowing us to write on it, or a second classic LCD screen as the first one.
Although we do not have a list of specifications, we do have some hardware data available.
In its main part, it would have a Kaby Lake Intel-Core processor, SSD storage, Wi-Fi, and a single USB-C port.
As for the battery, they do not give any information but they say that the prototype will offer an autonomy of 13 to 15 hours when in use.
Dual-screen gadgets will be the future
However, although these may never be seen in the markets, for now, it is clear that this is more than just a curiosity.
Too many prototypes of dual-screen gadgets, from big players in the industry, are already under development, be it dual-screen smartphones like or computers-like gadgets.
We already have the Lenovo Yoga Book, with a regular screen and another screen designed for use as a keyboard or for typing and there also is the ZTE Axon M with two screens that can be used in unison or separately.
Now it remains to be seen if the manufacturers will get on the market with fully functional dual-screen gadgets.
In the meantime, Intel Tiger Rapids dual-screen PC has been presented at Computex 2018 and already raised the interest of some tech savvies.
