Microsoft Surface Duo

Microsoft’s slick upcoming foldable phone – the Surface Duo – is expected to arrive in the holiday season this year. But as per a Windows Central report, the Surface Duo might be launched much earlier in April – just a month away from now.

The hurried launch is because the Surface Duo is not a 5G device, and Microsoft preferably won’t launch it at a time when 5G becomes the norm. It appears that Microsoft does not want the Surface Duo to feel outdated by launching it in late 2020 when all high-end devices are 5G-ready.

Interestingly, the report mentions that Surface Duo is powered by last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip paired with 6GB of RAM, but variants with more RAM are also in the pipeline. Surface Duo’s hardware has reportedly been locked for quite some time, which explains the old chipset inside it.

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.
