As per the design, its outer shell is rounded similar to Surface Neo. One can say that Surface Duo is the counterpart of the Neo with smartphone functionality. The phone features a front-facing camera and dual 5.6-inch screens. When the phone is unfolded with the help of the 360-degree hinge attached to it, the dual-screen transforms into an 8-inch screen. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, and it doesn’t have any rear camera.

The Surface Duo runs on Android with customized Windows 10X aesthetic skin, and it has full access to the Google Play Store. Microsoft also optimized a no. of apps to take advantage of the dual displays including Teams and Outlook. For example, when anyone will open the outlook app, then one screen will show the inbox, and the other will display the compose email. However, the device’s web browser will stretch across both the displays.

The Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay said, “We’re partnering with Google to bring together the absolute best of Android into one product. This is industry-pushing technology.”

It will also be available on the holiday season of the next year 2020 along with the Surface Neo.
