Monitor Capabilities of Windows 10 on a Phone RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking at building my own phone by mounting three OLED screens in a row on hinges and setting them up as three monitors. When I unfold the display I want the phone to recognize there is an extended display and when folded it only detects the single display.

    Can Windows 10 Phone recognize multiple monitors and extended displays like it does on a desktop natively, i.e. plug and play once I solder the connectors to the motherboard? If not is there a solution for programing the OS on a phone so that addition displays are recognized? If it recognizes it natively then can it detect when a display is off and de-extend the display to only one screen.

    If I have this in the wrong place please let me know.
