Although the Surface Duo was not originally expected for the winter, the dual-screen smartphone could appear in the coming weeks. New render images for the device have now appeared. The photos confirm that the launch could take place soon. The device has also cleared FCC approval recently which also indicates sooner launch.
The render images come from the well-known leaker Evan Blass and were from The Surface Guide. The four photos show what the Surface Duo looks like when it is closed and when it is opened. The pictures should serve for marketing purposes and give future users a first impression of the smartphone.
Launch possibly in August
From the leaked render images, however, no unknown information about the upcoming dual-screen device emerges. Evan Blass’s description only confirms that Microsoft will market the Surface Duo in cooperation with providers such as AT&T. In addition, the photos suggest that the release date is getting closer and closer.
According to current rumors, the Redmond-based company does not want to launch the Surface Duo until the end of the year, but rather in the summer. It is possible that the device will see the light of day in August. However, there is no confirmation of this. Microsoft employees had already shared numerous pictures of the Surface Duo on Twitter in the past few weeks. Panos Panay, Joe Belfiore, Shilpa Ranganathan, Frank X. Shaw, and Brad Anderson, among others, posted photos of their device. The dual-screen smartphone could be seen in different situations, for example, while cooking or on a trip to Disneyworld. The Redmond-based company has shown that the Surface Duo is now ready for use and could be released in the near future.
