Microsoft is organizing a press event at the end of January in which it will show the Consumer Preview of Windows 10, The Verge reports. The software giant would also like to reveal a number of new features in the successor to Windows 8.1.
Earlier this year, Microsoft hinted at a follow-up event due early next year, but sources have told The Verge that the event will take place at the end of January. According to the American tech site, the press event will be larger than the presentation of the Technical Preview of Windows 10 at the end of September.
The software giant would also like to show a number of new features that should be available in Windows 10. The Consumer Preview would include improvements in the Continuum touch interface. Microsoft also wants to reveal its plans regarding Windows 10 on tablets and smartphones and may also make announcements about changes to the dashboard of the Xbox One console.
It is not yet clear when the Consumer Preview of Windows 10 will be available. The current Windows 10 Technical Preview is mainly aimed at advanced users and developers.
