At Computex 2019, Intel has brought with it two concept devices which are actually dual-screen laptops that the chipmaker has named the Twin River and Honeycomb Glacier.
The Twin River essentially resembles the Microsoft Courier featuring two full-screen displays stacked adjacent to each other. The displays are sized 12.3 inches with a resolution of 1920×1280 pixels and are housed inside a polyester, polyamide, and lycra fabric material.
Intel says it can fit a quad-core Intel U-series processor rated at 15W and features a fanless chassis with a thin vapour chamber cooling solution.
Intel has also demoed the Honeycomb Glacier prototype which bears a similar resemblance to Asus’ ZenBook Pro Duo. Unlike Twin River, the Honeycomb Glacier comes with a screen and a half where the primary display is a 15.6-inch 1080p screen and the secondary display is a 12.3-inch 1820×720 pixels screen.

The Honeycomb Glacier distinguishes from the ZenBook as it is able to lift both the screen upwards through a double single mechanism. Both screens can be lifted at any angles of choice and come with a Tobii eye-tracking camera which allows users to instantly switch from one screen to the other.
While the screens will be able to function simultaneously at the same time, Tobii Eye Tracking will allow users to interact between the two screens without needing a physical key for the same.
At the same event, Intel unveiled its 10th Gen Core 10nm-based Ice Lake processors with up to 4 cores and 8 threads, up to 4.1 max turbo frequency and up to 1.1 GHz graphics frequency. It’s rival AMD also unveiled its third-generation Ryzen CPUs alongside the Radeon RX 5000-series GPUs.
