For $1,399 or $1,499, Surface Duo comes with two screens, 6GB
of RAM, and the Snapdragon 855 SoC, which is the last
generation processor but the
benchmarks suggest that Microsoft has optimized the
hardware to deliver better results than other flagship
In addition, this dual-screen phone comes with an 11-megapixel
camera. Recently, Microsoft shared a little more information
about what we can expect from the
Surface Duo’s unique camera.
There’s nothing unusual about the Surface Duo’s camera
software. The camera app on the Surface Duo comes with the
traditional UI and the view from the lens will cover the whole
screen. There’s large circular shutter button and you can also
see the different shooting modes.
The Surface Duo is a great smartphone, but the price could be a
deal-breaker for most. This week, Best Buy has cut the price of
the Surface Duo in the United States by $100 to make it more
It’s not abnormal for smartphones to cost more after the
launch, but the Surface Duo comes with a higher price tag than
usual for the company. Fortunately, Microsoft has partnered
with AT&T to cut that price down quite a bit by knocking
$100 off of each variant.
On Best Buy, whether you’re buying the base model or the
top-tier, you’ll be saving $100 from the original launch price
bag. But there’s one catch – Best Buy says they can activate
service on this unlocked phone with AT&T.
If you buy the Surface Duo with AT&T, you can get Surface
Duo for $1,299 or $1,399. If you want to activate the services
later with your own carrier, you need to pay the full price,
which is $1,399 for the 128GB variant and $1,499 for the 256GB
Either way, the unlocked phone always allows you to switch
carriers whenever you want.
