standard Microsoft lowers Continuum hardware requirements, paving for future midrange Continuum phones


Continuum is a large selling point for Microsoft’s Windows 10 mobile devices (although I would argue about its true everyday usefulness). Regardless currently only the most high-end chips can support the dual screen output, which is essential for the Continuum experience, however Microsoft appear to be pacing the way for a mid-range Continuum device by lowering the physical hardware requirements.

The newly revised guidelines by Microsoft call for the phone to have at least a Snapdragon 617 chip, along with a 720p screen, 2 GBs of RAM and 16 GBs of internal storage. If nothing else, this is likely the specs lineup Microsoft will use in any upcoming mid-range Windows Phone devices.
