Surface Duo may finally make it to more countries in February 2021

Surface Duo launch

Microsoft’s Surface Duo was launched last year in the United
States only as the tech giant wanted to assess demand in the
country before introducing its first Android phone in
international markets.

Late last year, Microsoft confirmed that the
Surface Duo will finally venture outside the country in
early 2021. According to sources familiar with the development,
Microsoft is now planning to launch the dual-screen phone in
the second or third week of February.

Based on Microsoft Store product listings, the Surface Duo will
land in the UK in the second/third week of February 2021. The
device will likely reach other key European markets at the same
time. The dual-screen phone will reportedly also be available
in Canada in the third week of February.

For example, a Microsoft Store product listing suggests that
the phone will be released on February 18. However, a product
listing on a third-party retailer website points to a February
13 release date in Germany.

In the United Kingdom, BT and EE are reportedly working with
Microsoft on a deal to sell Surface Duo whenever it’s released
in the region.

Surface Duo Europe release date

Keep in mind that the Surface Duo business bundle in Europe
could also include one new accessory – wired earphone.

It’s also worth noting that the software giant is playing too
safe with the Surface Duo and it’s not planning to bring the
phone to more markets in 2021.

Surface Duo features

As we mentioned at the outset, Surface Duo was released in
September 2020 and it was already behind on specs. The
dual-screen phone comes with the Snapdragon 855 chipset and it
is four generations old in 2021. In addition to Snapdragon 855,
Surface Duo features an 11MP sensor and doesn’t offer NFC
connectivity or wireless charging.

Later this year,
Microsoft is also planning to unveil Surface Duo 2 with
improved camera, 5G connectivity, NFC, hardware
improvements and more.
