Chipmaker giant Intel is reportedly planning to launch a new brand of computer that runs both Windows and Android using virtualization techniques.

Intel's new idea, internally known as "Dual OS," would see Android running inside of Windows, so that both the apps could run side by side without rebooting the machine, the Verge reports.

Intel might introduce its new PC in the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week, the report added.

Earlier, Samsung announced the Ativ Q, a Windows 8 hybrid laptop that could launch a full-screen virtualized instance of Android by tapping an app on the homescreen, and coincidentally it was also known as Dual OS.
