If you snatched up a Surface Duo, it looks like you'll soon be able to kit it out in some new accent colors. While the Surface Duo comes with a "Glacier" bumper in the box to protect its edges, we've seen other bumper colors pop up in Microsoft's promotional material for the device. Now, listings for those additional bumpers have appeared at Best Buy (opens in new tab), confirming you'll soon be able to snag one for yourself.
Initially spotted by Reddit user azn2coo, the new bumpers come in Ember, Ice Blue, and Graphite colors. The Ember and Ice Blue colors are hot red and pale blue hues, respectively. The Graphite color, meanwhile, is much more understated, approaching black.
The additional bumper cases will cost $40 each. Currently, there's no release date available, but we've heard Microsoft may be aiming to launch the additional bumpers in late September. Their appearance in listings at Best Buy appears to lend additional credence to that timing.
In the meantime, Surface Duo is available to purchase now at Microsoft, AT&T, and Best Buy starting at $1,400. Once the new colors launch, they'll make the bumper one of the best Surface Duo cases you can get your hands on if you want a pop of additional color.
Double the fun
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.

$39.99 seems a bit pricey to me.. Seems like a $19.99 product. IDK Then again, all Surface accessories are priced relatively high, IMO. Maybe I'm just an old cheep ass. 🤷🏾♂️
First party accessories are typically high. There will surely be more reasonably priced alternatives from third parties.
Yeah. I imagine other companies will make similar bumpers for less. It's just more money in MS's pocket. 🤷🏾♂️
I own a Duo, and I love it so far. But, $40 for a bumper case is a beyond ridiculous price. Idiotic.
Yep, $40 is way too much. Maybe that price for all three colors.
Ugly accesory for an ugly phone ....
Dumb comment from a dumb troll. The Duo is far from perfect but one thing it is not is ugly.
people buy a $1400 phone and then are worry about $40 for a bumper... no way haha
Wish a green color was available 🤔
