The New Microsoft Surface Duo May Have Underwhelming Qualities

With rumors circulating about the Surface Duo potentially reaching the shelf sooner than its planned arrival of ‘holiday 2020,’ more and more rumors about Microsoft’s dual-screen system will begin to spread early. It’s already started, with the new article making some incredibly detailed details regarding the device’s specifications.

According to Windows Central, the foldable dual-screen unit, which is expected to have two 5.6-inch displays each with 1800×1350 resolution and run on Android, would have a Snapdragon 855 System on a chip (SoC) under the hood. The SoC will be combined with memory of 6 GB, as well as capacity of 64 GB or 256 GB.

The Surface Duo can also vibrate a single 11MP camera lens, positioned above the right monitor such that it can serve as both the front and rear-facing camera, AMOLED panel displays 401 pixel resolution, USB-C fast charging, and a 3,460mAh battery that will be adequate to take you on a single charge during the day.

Technology-wise, the device will obviously run on Android 10, as speculated, but not too long after its release it will be updated to Android 11. It will also come with a number of pre-installed apps that Microsoft hopes to finalize by the beginning of June.These first-party apps will support both display spanning and feature drag and drop capabilities unlike third-party apps whose dual-screen features will be at their respective developers’ discretion.
