Microsoft may anticipate Surface Duo for the next few weeks to outshine the Galaxy Fold 2
The Surface Duo foldable, announced by Microsoft in October last year in conjunction with Surface Neo, drew a lot of attention from fans of the brand who were waiting patiently for the company’s new onslaught in the smartphone segment.
At the time of the announcement, the Redmond giant promised that both would reach the market by the end of 2020, and recent information reinforces that one of the products could be announced in the coming weeks .
Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, development was naturally delayed, including Windows 10X, a platform that will come pre-installed on Neo; however, Redmond would have accelerated the development of the Duo to present it in the next 60 days (or less), according to Zac Bowden of the Windows Central portal:
Apparently, the company wants to try to overshadow the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, which is due to be presented on August 5.
As a reminder of the Surface Duo hardware, we have a device with a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 256 GB of storage. The operating system is for Android, possibly in its latest version.
The highlight is the two 5.6 ”panels (1800 x 1350) in the 4: 3 aspect, powered by a 3,460 mAh battery. The company would have opted for a single 11 megapixel camera for the front and rear.
We still don’t know how much the Duo will cost, but taking into account the information of a launch in such a short time, it should not be long until this detail also ends up leaking in the coming days.
