The dual-screen Surface Duo is expected to launch in the coming
Microsoft has already invited a series of MVPs for a
private briefing of the Surface Duo. A virtual event on August
12 is believed to be specifically dedicated to the Surface Duo
where the company’s top executives will privately present the
phone before an official announcement.
The pre-orders for the Surface Duo are supposed to start by the
end of August, according to the sources familiar with the
Surface Duo is also heading to the AT&T in the United
States, but the phone may not be exclusive to AT&T.
According to one report, shipments of the Surface Duo could
start later this month and the phone will launch in other
markets too, including Canada and Japan.
Microsoft’s executives have been teasing the Surface Duo for
months now. Today, Hiroshi
Lockheimer, Google’s head of Android, has also posted a new
teaser of the Surface Duo on his social media account.
This again confirms the close collaboration between Microsoft
and Google for the first dual-screen Android phone.
Surface Duo is a sleek and slim phone with two screens and a
hinge in the middle. The phone comes with 6GB of RAM, 256GB of
internal storage, 11-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 5.0, and
It’s also reported that the phone will include a 3,460mAh
battery, which doesn’t quite seem like a lot given that it has
two screens, but Microsoft has worked on the software to
improve the battery backup.
Microsoft is also planning to focus on a different metric for
the success of Surface Duo. For example,
Surface Duo will support the Surface Slim Pen and we’ve
also heard from our sources that there’ll be minimal lag when
using the pen.
According to the sources, Surface Pen for Surface Duo can
travel back and forth between the two screens smoothly, thanks
to the software feature created by Microsoft.
