Surface Duo will have access to the Google Play Store and runs Microsoft Launcher. Microsoft is placing a large emphasis on productivity with the Duo, thanks to its dual screens and ability to multitask.

We won't be able to get our hands on the Surface Duo until holiday 2020, but you can get a much closer look at the device in the preview video above.
