Microsoft’s first dual-screen Android phone is rumoured to go
on sale ‘very soon’ and it could start shipping as early as the
last week of August. Tuesday afternoon, more press images of
the Surface Duo have leaked online showing the box contents,
including the stylus.
As we know, Microsoft’s Surface Duo will charge via USB-C and
it comes with a 3,460mAh battery. Besides the handset, there’ll
be a USB-C to USB-C cable and charger in the box of the Surface
In the packaging, Microsoft will also bundle a white bumper
case for grip when holding the Surface Duo.
The leak has also confirmed that Microsoft will offer Surface
Slim Pen and a new colour variant of the Surface Buds for the
Surface Duo. There’s also an image of Surface Buds in a
new colour, but this won’t necessarily ship in the box.
According to earlier reports, the Android 10-powered handset
comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM and
64GB, 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.
The phone also comes with a fingerprint reader and this is the
only biometric unlocking method.

each and the resolution of each screen is 1350×1800, which
should be sufficient. Each screen is just 4.8mm thick. By
comparison, Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is 6.9mm thick when unfolded.
It’s also reported that the dual-screen phone uses an
11-megapixel sensor, which may not sound impressive, but we
believe that Microsoft has worked on the camera software to
improve the performance.
