Windows 10 Roadmap confirms Continuum for Phones touch & above lock-screen support as coming

We reported about enhanced continuum coming with Windows 10 Redstone and one of the features that it will enable is touch-screen support for Continuum for Phones on connected touch-supported display. Now this feature has been confirmed as “in development” in Windows 10 Roadmap. Not only this Continuum for Phones will have support for above and behind the Lock Screen connection. Also the support for Laptop accessory without a CPU or OS is also mentioned that we have seen in case of HP Elite X3.

Touch screen support

Touch input will be supported when connecting a Continuum-compatible phone to a touch monitor.

Laptop-like accessory support

Get support for a new accessory form factor that looks like a lightweight and low-cost laptop, but without any CPU or OS. When paired with a Continuum-compatible phone, it will allow you to use your phone like a laptop.

Projecting on PCs

Instead of only projecting a Continuum for phone experience on unconnected monitors, a Continuum-compatible phone can connect to monitors/screens that are connected to Windows 10 PCs. Connection above the lock screen, as well as behind the lock screen, are supported.
