After a very long wait, the original Surface Duo is now eligible to receive its over-the-air OS update to Android 11. Here is what is new and fixed with the biggest update yet for Microsoft's first dual-screen Android device.
Microsoft has today provided an update on the status of the Android 11 update for Surface Duo V1. The company had initially stated that it intended to ship the update before the end of 2021, but that never happened. Now, Microsoft has issued a statement to Windows Central that explains why the update never arrived and when users can expect to see it begin rolling out.
Back in September, Microsoft confirmed to media that it was working on bringing Android 11 to Surface Duo V1 customers before the end of 2021. That news came after the company had already said it planned to ship Android 11 for Surface Duo 1 in the summer of 2021. Unfortunately, as the world enters a new year, Microsoft still hasn't delivered this crucial update.

Those with Surface Duo or Surface Duo 2 can now ink and draw directly in a new email message in Outlook for Android. The new feature, which was shown off in early October, is now available in a recent update for the app. Here’s what you need to know.
The $1,500 Surface Duo 2 has left reviewers with mixed feelings, once again. From middling battery life, an explosive price point, and half-baked software, is Microsoft actually serious about selling these?
Surface Duo is one year old today! It's a beautiful, unique, and engaging device that I've used every day for 365 whole days. So, how has it held up throughout 12 months of consecutive use as my daily phone? Here's my experience.
It's a battle of the foldables with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 going head to head with the Surface Duo. Sure, the Duo is a bit older now, but the implementation of the form factor is what we're interested in today. Let's discuss.
