Well, Microsoft has not said anything official, but via a new leak, it appears the Redmond giant has created a dual display device.

It was created to end the limitations of primitive smartphones and to bring multitasking, more room for entertainment, etc. Microsoft wanted it to be a more productive device for its users. It was a practical solution for the problems that users were facing in those days.
In the official statement, Microsoft research said, “We describe a concept smartphone Display Cover, a secondary screen designed to improve productivity and convenience. Motivated by user research highlighting some of the limitations of current smartphones, the aim of this concept was to explore a practical solution which allows users to be more productive.”
