Microsoft hasn't exactly advertised this, but there are a dozen Surface Duo demo sessions scheduled through the end of August. The sessions are live and available to stream online, and you'll get a chance to ask questions about Duo as well. You can sign up to join one of the sessions at Microsoft now.

With the current state of the world, this might be your best bet to get an in-depth look at Duo ahead of its September 10 launch. It's not the only way to check it out, however. Microsoft also recently revealed that demo units are available now at select Best Buy stores, and they'll be at AT&T stores starting August 28.

Surface Duo is Microsoft's return to the phone space, but Microsoft is pitching it as much more than a phone. It's primarily intended as a mobile productivity device, with the unique dual-screen setup offering some interesting capabilities. While it isn't intended to appeal to the masses, it's another unique addition to Microsoft's growing stable of Surface devices.

Surface Duo is available to preorder now from the Microsoft Store, AT&T, and Best Buy starting at $1,400. It's expected to launch on September 10.
