Microsoft announced the Surface Duo along with the Surface Neo last October. These are dual-screen devices from the company, similar to the LG V50 and LG V60. The Surface Neo was announced with the Windows 10X system and the Surface Duo with the Android system.
Some information about the Microsoft Surface Duo have now been revealed by Windows Central. It will launch with two 5.6-inch AMOLED displays with a resolution of 1800×1350. The display will have a pixel density of 401ppi.
The information from Windows Central also revealed that the Surface Duo will also use the Snapdragon 855 chipset, coupled with 5GB of RAM and optional 64GB or 256GB of internal storage.
According to the source, the Surface Duo has a battery capacity of 3,460mAh. It supports fast charging through its USB-C port. There is no wireless charging or NFC connectivity on the current test version of the device.
Windows Central also revealed that the Microsoft Surface Duo will run Android 10 but will be upgraded to Android 11 soon. Not all third-party Android applications support the multi-screen display feature. However, all first-party applications pre-installed by Microsoft will support it.
Microsoft originally planned to launch the Surface Duo in 2018. However, the device got stranded when Microsoft abandoned the Windows Mobile operating system. So the eventual launch of the device now will be recorded as a success for the company.
