The Microsoft Surface Duo is back on sale, and this time, it’s aimed at breaking its previous failure. This device is the company’s first self-branded Android phone and is currently available for $699.
For those who are unaware, the device was first released about seven months ago and priced at $1,400. However, within a month of its launch, the tech giant began offering the device at a discount of US$200. We were then told there could be price changes. It was because he couldn’t sell enough. When we come to the Surface Duo, the device will be presented to users as an ultra-thin Android phone with dual screens, which is combined with a 360-degree hinge and also allows for a single screen operating mode. One wonders what kind of demand there will be for the device in our foldable smartphone view.
The device was not well received on the market and did not bring great reviews either. It was stated that it had a strange form factor, among other problems, faulty software, exorbitant pricing, and other problems. But despite this, the device was one of the thinnest Android devices, with a thickness of only 4.8 mm when turned on, which contributes to its entire minimalist appearance.
Under the hood, the Surface Duo is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and two 5.6-inch screens with an aspect ratio of 4:3. Even with a 50 percent discounted price tag, the device is still not highly recommended, but this may be for smartphone enthusiasts looking for a newer experience.
