Windows 10 could soon run on your Android smartphone: Windows 10 for ARM developers mark a milestone with dual-screen display now supported on the Lumia 950 XL
Windows 10 running native on your Android device? This might not be pipe dream for much longer. Developers working on the Windows 10 for ARM project have hit a major milestone, getting dual display support working on the Lumia 950 XL smartphone.
Dual display is a major improvement from a usability point of view since users running Windows 10 won’t lose smartphone functionality when running the desktop OS. The developers also see to have gotten USB functionality working properly according to an ITHome report.
As of now, developer efforts have focused on porting Windows 10 to a select few ARM devices, namely the Windows Mobile-powered Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. However, reports indicate that the developers are actively working on bringing the project over to Android flagship devices.
Once the groundwork is laid out on these two Windows Mobile smartphones, we expect to see fully functional Windows 10 ports on Android relatively soon. With the project moving faster than expected, the wait might not even be that long.
