Save over 50% on Microsoft Surface Duo in latest UK discount
The experimental dual-screen Microsoft Surface Duo has seen its largest discount to date in the UK market, with over 50% savings now live via the Microsoft Store. The latest discount presents a tempting offer on the first-generation folding device, marketed around portable productivity.
Current Microsoft Store pricing offers the Surface Duo at £679 for its 128GB model, with an upgrade to 256GB costing £730. That's down from the premium £1,400 starting price the product first launched with earlier in 2021, following its U.S. debut last September. While you can read our Microsoft Surface Duo review for our thoughts on the device, Microsoft Store UK also has a generous 60-day return policy on Surface products, should you change your mind.
Two screens are better than one.
Microsoft delves into the future of foldables with an ambitious dual-screen device, featuring two ultra-thin 5.6-inch AMOLED displays bound by a 360-degree hinge. This pocketable inking-enabled Android smartphone marks the latest in the Surface lineup, geared for mobile productivity.
The Microsoft Surface Duo comes with a distinct premise, with twin ultra-thin AMOLED displays, bound by a robust 360-degree hinge. It's the first Surface product running Android, serving as a full-fledged smartphone, and productivity-geared companion. The two screens make it ideal for multitasking, with full inking support when used with any Surface-compatible pens.
The Surface Duo ships with a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB RAM, and a 3577mAh battery, all capable although falling short of the latest flagship devices. While Microsoft has also made steady software improvements with regular updates, we're currently waiting on the long-promised upgrade to Android 11.
Microsoft's latest discounts to Surface Duo reflect the imminent announcement of its successor, with the first Surface Duo 2 images recently leaking online. The upcoming device is expected to improve the camera, one pitfall the first device, while bumping the specifications to modern standards.

It seriously would not work - folded back it would just put enormous strain on the hinge because of the uneven pressure
I was totally gutted when they said 'this is it!' It looks like an abomination - can't it being the final
UK price now = £679 Sweet, until you calculate = $649 is £467
£679 is $943 We're paying £212 or $294 more depending which currency you work in. To put it another way, it's still nearly a thousand bucks in The UK. No one's ever given me an answer why tech companies always get away with ripping off Brits. Same products, hundreds more. For Samsung phones we even get charged more for inferior phones (Exynos vs. Qualcomm).
