Microsoft Surface Duo

Microsoft’s highly anticipated phone-tablet hybrid, the Surface Duo, is reportedly on track for a holiday season debut this year, but the specs will decidedly be quite underwhelming. As per a fresh leak courtesy of Windows Central, the Surface Duo will pack a sole 11MP (F/2.0) snapper that will double as both the front and rear camera.

It will reportedly feature two 5.6-inch AMOLED panels joined by a 360-degree hinge. Each half will offer a 4:3 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1800×1350 which translates to a pixel density of 401ppi. A 3,460mAh battery with fast charging support will keep the lights on, which is quite small for a device that has two AMOLED panels and a power-hungry chip.

Talking about the processor, Microsoft has equipped the Surface Duo with the old Snapdragon 855 SoC ticking alongside 6GB of RAM and 64/256 GB of onboard storage. Surprisingly, there is no NFC support, and neither is 5G. The Surface Duo will run a heavily skinned version of Android 10, with all in-house apps supporting drag-and-drop and spanning across both halves of the display.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
