Microsoft Surface Duo live
The recording published by Israel Rogriguez shows "in real" foldable smartphone Microsoft Surface Duo, which is used by one of the passengers of the train in Vancouver.
Microsoft's foldable smartphone with a double screen was noticed by Israel Rodriguez. One of the passengers in SkyTrain S-Bahn in Vancouver, Canada, used the device. As you can see in the video, the smartphone looks fully functional. The film, apparently discreetly recorded by Rodriguez, is a bit blurry at times. But you can see that on one screen were placed applications Facebook Messenger, YouTube, Microsoft Teams and Outlook. On the second is a document that looks like a note.
The video clearly shows that Surface Duo is slim and apparently light and comfortable enough to be operated with one hand. It can also be seen that it can be folded outside with the screens. The device does not use one flexible screen, but two. However, the hinge was constructed in such a way that when folded down, both screens come together very closely, creating an almost uniform plane.
Surface Duo uses two 5.6-inch screens that, as seen in the video, merge into a larger 8.3-inch screen. You can run two different applications on each display. One of the screens can act as a keyboard. Little is known about the device itself yet. We only know that Snapdragon 855 is to be responsible for performance. The system is of course Android.
It is also unknown when Microsoft intends to launch sales. There are many indications that the premiere of the smartphone will not take place until December this year. It is also difficult to talk about price. In the case of smartphones with flexible screens, the cost of the device ranges from about 7,000. PLN (Motorola Razr) to over 10 thousand (Samsung Galaxy Fold). Surface Duo does not have a flexible screen, but contrary to appearances, this may be an advantage of this device.
