Microsoft is pushing ahead with its launch of Surface Duo, the dual-screen Android foldable, marking yet another return to smartphones for the company. The device packs two screens in one with its 360-degree hinge, with multiple postures and optimized apps, geared toward improving productivity. The device has now returned following its 2019 unveiling, scheduled to arrive on September 10, starting at $1,399.
The Surface Duo first arrives in the U.S. with preorders opening on August 12 through the Microsoft Store, Best Buy, and AT&T. The device packs two ultra-thin 5.6-inch AMOLED displays hinged down the center, powered by the Snapdragon 855 processor, with 6GB RAM, and a choice of 128GB or 256GB onboard storage. There's also a single 11MP camera, doubling as both front- and rear-facing with the hinge, and support for inking using Surface Pens.
