What you need to know

  • Microsoft announced the Surface Neo, a dual-screened Windows 10 PC at an event in NYC.
  • A video debuting alongside the Surface Neo gives us a first look at how it works.
  • Surface Neo is expected to launch in the holiday period 2020

The Surface Neo is real and it's awesome. It feels like we've been talking about, dreaming about a device like this for an eternity, and at the big Surface Event in New York today, Microsoft showed it to the world. It's no phone (though there is also one of those!), instead something quite unique.

The Surface Neo will run Windows 10X and should be on sale in the holiday period in 2020. That's about the only disappointing thing about it, the long wait. It uses a custom processor from Intel, has two 9-inch displays, Windows Hello, USB-C, and an incredible keyboard attachment.

It's sad we have to wait so long, but give the sizzle reel a watch to pass two minutes of that wait. It's worth it.
