Microsoft has announced at the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference in China, that the new OS will only need a minimum resolution of 800 x 600.
This trumps the minimum requirements of both Windows 8 and 8.1, which needed a minimum screen resolution of 1,366 x 768 and 1,024 x 768 respectively, reports PC World.
Other requirements are the same as older versions, such as needing at least 2GB of memory and 20GB of storage for the 64-bit and 1GB with 16GB of storage for the 32-bit.
Windows 10 will also only need a seven-inch screen for the professional edition and eight-inch for the consumer – good news for tablet manufacturers.
The requirements for Windows 10 smartphones are to be released alongside the full desktop version, and will apparently house a number of different options for mobile phone makers.
