Pre-order the Surface Duo from Microsoft or AT&T
The Surface Duo sports two 5.6-inch AMOLED screens, each with a resolution of 1350 x 1800. When both displays are open at a 180-degree angle, it forms an 8.1-inch AMOLED display with a combined resolution of 1800 x 2700. In the middle of the two displays is the revolutionary hinge that opens up to 360 degrees. Powering the device is the Snapdragon 855, one generation old. The combination of the high retail price and the older chipset might deter some buyers.
In setting out to design and manufacture Surface Duo, much of the innovation is in the OLED display technology, the dynamic hinge, system integration, the interaction model, and software development. In order to start development of these advanced technologies and also qualify a mobile device, with multiple postures, we developed on an existing platform that allowed for long lead submittals and qualifications during the advanced technology development. The Snapdragon 855 was the perfect solution when Surface Duo was first in development more than 2 years ago, and the stability of the platform and performance in the market allowed us to get to market in a timely manner, delivering the productivity-focused performance that our customers are looking for.”
When you receive your Surface Duo starting on the 10th of next month, you might rip up the box looking for the Surface Slim Pen that appears in many of the promotional pictures of the device. The truth is that the digital writing tool is not included with the Surface Duo and must be purchased separately.
Still, if you’re cool with that, you can whip out your charge card and reserve a Surface Duo right this second from Microsoft, or pre-order it tonight from AT&T.
