The Microsoft Surface Duos is now available and it’s one of the foldable smartphones that run on the Android operating system straight from Microsoft. The device comes with just a single camera and it also has a good battery capacity. This is a premium device that will compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G.
The classic foldable Microsoft Surface Duos is built with glass both on the back and front. It has a smooth panel that housed the brand logo and also a single snapper. When folded it measures 145.2 x 93.3 x 9.9 mm in dimensions and 186.9 x 145.2 x 4.8 mm when unfolded. It weighs 250 grams and also comes with Stylus support.
On the front, it has a large screen size of 8.1 inches which is the same on the most tablet. The screen has a resolution of 1800 x 2700 pixels, a 3:2 ratio under AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. Meanwhile, when folded it still has a large display size of 5.6 inches under AMOLED display and a resolution of 1350 x 1800 pixels.
The Microsoft Surface Duos has a single camera of 11 MP that features 4K@30/60fps, 1080p@30/60fps, gyro-EIS videos. The shooter lacks an LED flash and for selfies, it also makes use of the main camera. This means we only have just a snapper on the phone.
Hardware And Software
Microsoft equipped the Surface Duos with a powerful Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855 chipset that is built on 7nm process technology. The SOC has an octa-core processor running at a speed of 1×2.84 GHz Kryo 485 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 485 & 4×1.78 GHz Kryo 485. There is an Android 10 operating system on the software and it also has Adreno 640 for graphics.
Just as expected there is no micro SDcard slot on the device. Instead, it has a generous inbuilt memory of 128GB and another model with up to 256GB. Both have the same 6GB RAM for a solid performance. The sensors on the Surface Duos include Fingerprint (side-mounted), accelerometer, and proximity.
Battery Power And Network Connectivity
The Microsoft Surface Duos has a non-removable battery of 3577 mAh that has support for fast charging technology. We can’t really tell how long the battery will last. However, we do know that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G battery will last longer. It has a single SIM and support for just a 4G LTE network. Other connectivity options on the phone are Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot, GPS and 3.1, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector.
