Recently seen in the Lenovo Yoga devices, mobile devices with dual screens are attracting attention but so far the implementation has not been without troubles. Intel showed off two prototype machines at Computex that they believe will offer what this segment of customers is looking for. The Tiger Rapids machine has a conventional touchscreen on one side and some sort of electronic paper display on the other, which has a bit of give to it so that using a stylus on it gives you some tactile feedback. It is powered by a Kaby Lake processor of some description, with an SSD and the unfortunately common lone USB Type-C port on it. At 4.7mm thin it is a fairly impressive design.
Their second does not bear a code name but resembles the Yoga as it has two traditional touchscreens with one generally displaying a keyboard. We don't know much about them, but you can take a peek at them over at The Inquirer.
"The first machine codenamed Tiger Rapids – this is Intel after all – mixes one touchscreen panel with an electronic paper display designed specifically for note taking and stylus scribbling, even coming with a slight give to simulate writing on paper."
