A little more than a year after the original release of the Microsoft Surface Duo smartphone, the company announced the release of the Microsoft Surface Duo 2. It is the company’s second-generation foldable smartphone. Another improvement in this edition is that the price has been reduced as part of an effort to make it a more appealing purchase and a more useful productivity tool than its predecessor.
It costs $1,499 in the United States for the Surface Pro 4, which contains an Intel Core i3 or i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD). The Surface Pro 4 is also available in other countries for roughly £1,100 or AU$2,080. Starting at $1,399 / £1,350 (about AU$1.930), the original model was available for purchase.
Information on the Microsoft Surface Duo 2 that you should be aware of.
Despite having the same physical dimensions as its predecessor, the Microsoft Surface Duo 2 offers significant upgrades across the board. The new model has a screen size of 5.8 inches folded and 8.3 inches unfolded, whereas the previous model had a screen size of 5.6 inches folded and 8.1 inches unfolded, with a minor resolution increase for each of them as well as a minor resolution increase for the other.
The battery’s capacity has increased from 3,577mAh to 4,449mAh, and charging speeds have increased from 18W to 23W as a result of the increase in capacity. Because of the greater battery capacity, charging periods would most likely be a little longer than usual. One of the most significant improvements made by the Surface Duo 2 is in the area of camera performance. Instead of a single 11MP sensor, there are three 12MP lenses: a main lens with 12MP resolution, an ultra-wide lens with 16MP resolution, and a telephoto lens with 12MP resolution and 2x optical zoom.
For professionals, the ability to connect to 5G networks, which the original did not have but which will be handy for downloading files and maintaining a steady mobile connection, is a feature that will be extremely valuable. This is related to the new CPU, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, which should provide great performance in this regard.
Microsoft also unveiled new Surface Pro 8, Surface Go 3, and Surface Pro X devices, as well as a brand-new Studio edition of the Surface Laptop, as part of its Surface event.
