Microsoft patents accurate battery life meter for Surface Duo – Microsoft surprised everyone by announcing that it’s
returning to the smartphone market with Surface Duo.
Microsoft has prototyped a dual-screened Android device, which
is a bold move that could shake up the smartphone industry.

A patent suggests that Microsoft’s Surface Duo, which is a
pocket-sized foldable device that is based on Android, might
come with an accurate battery life meter. Spotted by us, a new
patent titled ‘Power management of a mobile communications
device’ was published by USPTO on
October 8.

It details a UI to determine power consumption used in the
performance of the device.

“A determination is made as to an amount of power that remains
in a battery of the mobile communications device,” the patent
reads. “A user interface is displayed on a display device of
the mobile communications device that describes an amount of
time each of the plurality of tasks may be performed based on
the determined amount of power that remains in the battery”.

This could be useful for a device like Surface Duo, but such
technology will also make sense on a smartwatch.

Accurate battery management will also highlight the number of
times applications have affected battery life.

“Further, as applications are booted, the result of this action
(e.g., execution of each additional application) may be
reflected in the user interface,” the company noted.
