Surface Duo unveiled: A foldable Microsoft phone with Android

In addition to the
dual-screen Surface Neo with Windows 10X, Microsoft also
unveiled a new foldable device ‘Surface Duo’ and it runs
Google’s Android!

The Surface Duo comes with Android and it has two displays
connected by a hinge. This innovative device features two
5.6-inch displays and it can rotate 360 degrees, allowing you
to keep it in your pocket with all the glass facing inward.

It folds into half and supports calling, and the device is
essentially a smartphone in this form factor.

When you take it out of your pocket, it can open like a
miniature tablet and rotate 360 degrees.

The design of the device resembles Microsoft’s dual-screen
Surface Neo but looks and works more like a pocketable device
(smartphone).

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor powers the Surface Duo and
it can also run multiple apps at the same time on both panels.
While Surface Duo supports calling, it’s more than a basic
smartphone and it can be used as a mini-laptop with a keyboard
or as a gaming console with a game controller.

Surface Duo runs a heavily skinned version of Android and
resembles the feel of Windows 10X, a new operating system for a
dual-screen Surface Neo laptop. We don’t know if the Surface Do
will feature a rear or front camera and other design elements
haven’t been finalized yet.

Given that many popular apps in the Google Play Store are
created by Microsoft, including Office, Launcher, Microsoft
Edge – a foldable Surface phone with Android is not a crazy
idea and it would also address the app gap concerns.
