Microsoft Surface Duo 2


Microsoft has officially taken the wraps off its muchantici­pated Surface Duo, featuring upgrades in every single department. The book-style folding device sat somewhere between a tablet and a foldable phone. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, it doesn’t use a single foldable display, but instead two that sandwich together. The new Surface Duo 2 will be available in two color options – Glacier and Obsidian.

Talking about its specificat­ions, the new Surface Duo 2, like its predecesso­r, boasts dual displays on either side, making it a folding form factor hanging from the centre. It has a 5.8-inch OLED display and has a screen resolution of 1344 x 1892 pixels. Both screens have a smooth 90Hz refresh rate and measures 8.3-inch diagonally when unfolded. Powering the device with a unique form factor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SOC, with support for 5G connectivi­ty. The phone has 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options. The fingerprin­t sensor is built into the power button and you’ll get stereo speakers.

As for the optics, the latest folding handset houses a triple-rear camera module that comprises a 12-megapixel main camera with OIS, 16-megapixel ultrawide camera, and 12-megapixel telephoto with OIS and 2x optical zoom. The front camera is a 12-megapixel.

Coming to the price and availabili­ty, the new Surface Duo 2 will cost $1,499 to start, $100 more than the first Surface Duo. The device is available in more markets at launch, however, and is expected to start shipping on October 21.
