Windows 9 is clearly an exciting product for both users and Microsoft, but even though there are quite a lot of details available right now online, the company has remained completely tight-lipped on this particular project.
Sources familiar with the matter and those who have already received the testing builds, however, have provided us with lots of details about this new operating system, revealing that in addition to new features, Windows 9 is also going to support high-resolution displays of up to 8k.
Not much is known at this point, but the folks over at PCPortal claim that in addition to better support for high-resolution displays, Windows 9 will also come with better DPI scaling.
At this point, these improvements are still under heavy testing within the company, but they should be ready before the final version of Windows 9 sees daylight in April 2015.
High-resolution displays aren’t quite common these days, but they surely get traction at a fast pace, and in a few years they should become more popular among large organizations.
The main setback right now is their price, as high-resolution displays continue to be very expensive, but also the lack of software that can actually help users make the most of them.
But Microsoft sees the potential in this new feature and tries to capitalize on its fast growth with the upcoming Windows 9 operating system which it wants to become available on a large array of devices of different sizes.
It’s no secret that Microsoft is working to make Windows 9 a hit, so the upcoming operating system will boast a Start menu, multiple desktops, a PC version of Cortana, a notification center, and Internet Explorer 12.
Users will be allowed to get a taste of this new OS version later this month or in early October, when the company will roll out the very first beta of the platform. Some of the features that are rumored to be included in Windows 9 might not be available at first in Windows 9 beta, but the company could add them at a later time with the help of a new built-in update system.
Sources say that Windows 9 could reach RTM before the end of the year, but while this is very unlikely given the fact that many features might not be ready by then, the full version of the OS should hit the shelves in spring 2015.
