For months we have been tracking the rumours and trickle of information about the impending release of the dual-screen Android device from Microsoft, the Surface Duo. Today they have announced the USA pricing and release date.
Pull out your wallets and get ready, on September 10, 2020 the Microsoft Surface Duo will officially go on sale for US$1,399. Converted to Australian Dollars that is around $1960 AUD, and if you take the normal Australia tax into account would likely be $2110.
While no specs were listed we know that unfolded the Duo will sport an 8.1-inch “Fusion display”, comprised of two 5.6-inch displays. Using the 360 degrees hinge the Duo can be used as a single display, fully open or anywhere in between.
Rumours suggest that the Duo will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 paired with 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. Powering all of this and the dual screens will apparently be a worryingly-small 3,460mAh battery.
The Surface Duo will launch with the full complement of Microsoft apps as well as the mandatory Google apps. It’s unclear if the Surface Dup will be launching in Australia, but we deeply hope that it will.
