About the leak of new icons for Windows 10X
Coming thanks to Aggiornamenti Lumia, the three new ones are redone with Windows 10X in mind – Microsoft’s light-weight OS for dual-screen devices. Unlike their monochrome predecessors, these reestablish the long-forgotten gradients, which brings them more in line with the business’s Fluent Design System.

We will see a full set of official icons in 2020, the period when Microsoft plans to launch the Surface Neo, which will run on Windows 10X. Microsoft may also avail of some icons for regular Windows 10 and Surface Duo.
