The Microsoft Surface Duo is a dual-screen Android smartphone that had a major disappointment when it was launched in September last year. Surface Duo is only equipped with Snapdragon 855 processor (old generation processor at the time of launch), also does not support 5G. Two 5.6-inch (1350 x 1800) AMOLED screens, when expanded, combine to form an 8.1-inch (1800 x 2700) screen.
6GB RAM, 128GB or 256GB storage. The two batteries have a total capacity of 3577 mAh. The Surface Duo also supports the Surface Pen, though you’ll have to pay extra to buy it out. As for the price point, the 128GB version is currently priced at $ 949.99, down from the original price of $ 1,399.99.
However, if you want to buy a Surface Duo now, you’ll probably want to wait. Because according to Windows Latest, Microsoft is currently recruiting additional staff to develop Surface Duo 2. “The Windows Device Software team is in the process of developing new experiences for the Surface Duo. We believe it is possible to create a device with enough Microsoft vision , ” said Microsoft’s recruitment information.
The source revealed that the Surface Duo 2 will have many significant upgrades, including support for advanced 5G technology, a feature that the first generation Surface Duo did not have. Moreover, the Surface Duo 2 will be equipped with the latest Snapdragon 888 processor based on 5nm architecture.
Larger battery capacity is also essential for a dual-screen smartphone like the Surface Duo, the storage capacity also needs to be increased to 512GB to meet the needs of users.
The Surface Duo 2 will also run Android, but Microsoft developers will make apps better suited for a device with two screens. However, the Surface Duo 2 is likely to remain a fussy device for users, and is unlikely to be as popular as Samsung’s folding screen smartphones.
There is currently no information on the release date of the Surface Duo 2.
