At an event Wednesday Microsoft officially announced a new dual-screen foldable Android smartphone, dubbed Surface Duo. Surface Duo essentially looks like a smaller version of the Surface Neo, another dual-screen foldable device Microsoft also unveiled.
The Surface Duo sports two 5.6-inch displays that curve 360-degrees around a hinge and combine to make an 8.3-inch display. The phone opens up so that the second display can be used as a game controller or a keyboard. The second display can also function as a stand, enabling users to watch videos in landscape mode. And when it's time to take a phone call, you can simply fold one of the screens behind the other to make the Duo easier to hold.
Microsoft said it partnered with Google to "bring the best of Android" to the device, while incorporating elements of Windows 10X, a new operating system meant for hybrid devices. It can also run two different apps at the same time.
Surface Duo will launch in late 2020, in time for the holiday season. No pricing details were announced.
