This year, tech giant Microsoft is expected to shop their new foldable Surface Duo device. The company plans to launch this with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 from last year. The latest reports also say that 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB, or 256 GB storage options would drive the processor.
The app will also have a single 11MP camera sensor over the right monitor, which will be used for both front and rear-facing images and videos, according to Windows Central.
The new Microsoft smartphone boasts two 5.6-inch AMOLED displays of equal size. Every screen supports a 4:3 aspect ratio, a resolution of 1800 x 1350 pixels and a pixel density of 401ppi.
The two screens on the Surface Duo are held together with a fully rotating hinge that can be adjusted to any angle and as per the World Intellectual Property Organization ( WIPO), the company had recently patented this new hinge mechanism.
This new device runs on Android 10 OS, but Microsoft can include on the device a bunch of its own apps that can make good use of the new foldable format. The device will ship with a 3460mAh battery that appears to be a bit small according to current industry standards, especially if it pushes two screens at a time. The device will use a USB Type-C port for quick charging.
Microsoft Surface Duo isn't going to support 5G. It's also rumored that the device lacks wireless charging and NFC support.
