Surface Duo EvLeaks

Evan Blass, aka @ EvLeaks , posted on his Twitter account several press renders of the upcoming Surface Duo, an unusual Android smartphone from Microsoft. The device will not only be the company’s first Android phone, but it will also mark a re-entry into the smartphone market that was abandoned after the Windows Phone crash, as well as an attempt to promote the new dual-screen form factor to the masses.

As reported by Windows Central , the Surface Duo smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB of RAM. Two 5.6-inch screens are made using AMOLED technology with a resolution of 1800 x 1350 each, which support the proprietary Surface Pen stylus. The smartphone is also equipped with a fingerprint scanner, a 3,460 mAh battery and one 11 megapixel camera, which acts as a front and main one. The user will be offered configurations with 64, 128 or 256 GB of storage.

The relatively modest specifications and the lack of certain technologies, such as NFC or 5G, are explained by the fact that the hardware of the smartphone was prepared back in 2018. Microsoft originally planned to release Surface Duo on a new version of Windows Core OS , but changed its mind in favor of Android. This led to a significant delay in the smartphone and the release with obsolete characteristics.

Surface Duo was first shown at Microsoft’s fall 2019 presentation. The company has planned to launch the smartphone during the 2020 holiday season, but according to Windows Central, the Surface Duo will go on sale by the end of August.
