Back in 2019, Microsoft unveiled two devices with a dual-screen design, the Surface Duo smartphone, and the Surface Neo laptop. The Surface Duo smartphone is actually a foldable phone that turns out to be a tablet when extended. Although it been months since we have seen the prototype of the device, the device is still not available to buy on the market.
Both of the devices were scheduled to launch for the 2020 holidays. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic ended up forcing Microsoft to postpone the launch of the Surface Neo and its Windows 10X operating system until 2021. However, a new report says the Surface Duo could arrive as soon as the next month of July.
According to a report from MSPoweruser, the Surface Duo release date is just a few weeks away. The source of the publisher is a tweet from the informant Zac Bowden (@zacbowden), writer for the Windows Central media. The tweet claims that Microsoft intends to announce the Surface Duo smartphone ahead of the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 launch.
I'm told Microsoft wants to launch Surface Duo before the Galaxy Fold 2 is announced. So, before August 5th? We're getting close. Assuming plans don't change, Surface Duo should start shipping in less than 2 months.

According to his tweet, the deadline for the launch of the Microsoft Surface Duo is the end of July. He also mentioned in his tweet that if everything goes well as expected, Microsoft would start shipping the upcoming Surface Duo in less than two months.
