Microsoft unveils its second generation foldable Surface Duo smartphone


Like the previous model, the smartphone received two separate 90-Hz displays. When unfolded, the diagonal of the screen is 8.3". In the folded area, the displays are rounded, which allows when folded to display useful information for the user: time, battery level, notifications. Microsoft has worked on improving the hinge. Also screens are protected by tempered glass Corning.



The "heart" of the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip with 8 GB of RAM. The storage capacity can be 128, 256 or 512 GB. The company chose not to disclose data on battery capacity and autonomy.

The first generation model did not have an external camera, this was fixed here. The smartphone is equipped with a 12 megapixel main module with an f/1.7 aperture and an optical stabilization. In addition to the main lens, a 16 megapixel ultra wide-angle lens and a 12 megapixel telephoto lens were added. The camera application has also undergone refinement, allowing you to take advantage of all the advantages of a dual screen.

The smartphone also received close integration with Windows 11. Thus, the user can copy the text on the device, and then immediately transfer it to the computer or vice versa. There is support for launching games from Xbox Game Pass without an external controller, with controls displayed on one part of the display. In addition, the device has an NFC module for contactless payment and a fingerprint scanner on the power key.

Depending on the configuration, the Surface Duo 2 can be purchased for $1500, $ 1600, or $ 1800. The start of sales is scheduled for October 21.
