The Surface Duo is Microsoft’s return to the smartphone business, but it’s not a normal device, but a rather unusual cell phone with two displays. This should come out this year, too many details are not yet known.
Of course, this applies to the hardware, because the basic concept of the Surface Duo has already been presented in detail by Microsoft. What exactly is in the Android smartphone is only partially known. So far, it is only clear that it has two 5.6-inch screens with a resolution of 1800×1350 pixels each, but that’s essentially it.
Microsoft employees can test the Surface Duo
It is usually not surprising if specifications are not known if the device is secret and/or not yet finished. However, both are only partially true of the Surface Duo: Microsoft already revealed it last autumn, and it is already being tested “semi-publicly” by numerous employees internally. We had a video leaked about the employee testing the device on Metro.
Even Windows Central confirmed that the specifications are already available and can be expected to start at most minimal adjustments. According to information from Zac Bowden, the Surface Duo will come with a Snapdragon 855 and six gigabytes of RAM this year. 64 and 256 gigabytes are mentioned as internal storage options.
A sensor with eleven megapixels will be available on the camera. It will be the only camera on the Surface Duo, it will be used for selfies as well as conventional photos. The displays will be AMOLED panels.
There is also a 3460mAh battery. According to current knowledge, this can be quickly charged via USB-C, but not wirelessly. NFC is also said not to be on board, Surface Duo owners will probably also have to do without 5G support.
