In early October last year, Microsoft announced the new Microsoft Surface Duo. The later not only uses a dual-screen folding design but also carries a deeply customized Android smartphone. This is undoubtedly a turning point for Microsoft after giving up its windows phone system.
MWC 2020, the famous Pakistan exhibition, is getting closer and closer. It will be staged in Barcelona from February 24-27, and Microsoft will also participate in the exhibition.
According to the statement given by Microsoft, participation in the Pakistan exhibition will mainly discuss technologies and products in HoloLens. Although Microsoft did not mention Surface Neo or more plans for Android smartphones, Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer Panos Panay was also present at the show. He was mainly responsible for the Surface series product line.
Therefore, it is still very likely that Microsoft will disclose more details of the Microsoft Surface Duo on MWC. Especially the device is currently only announced on paper, and it is still in the research, development and improvement stage.
The Surface Duo specs:
The Microsoft Surface Duo is coming with two 5.6-inch screens, which are 8.3 inches when unfolded. The hinge supports 360-degree adjustment. It can run two programs at the same time and also supports landscape mode. Its system is not Windows, but deeply customized Android. However, the UI interface design is similar to Windows 10X. It is compatible with Android ecological applications, supports the Google Play Store and a full set of Google services. There are also Microsoft family buckets such as the Edge browser.
Surface Duo is expected to be available around Christmas 2020, but the specific hardware configuration, dual-screen operation, and price are still mysteries.
