Microsoft Surface Duo full specification and features

Microsoft is trying to pushing the technology further as the company’s approach is to build the short-pocket sized devices that can also run on an android. Microsoft is entering the smartphone market industry in the upcoming 2020 holiday. In the Mircosoft surface line up, there has been listed one more device dubbed The Microsoft surface duo.

Primitive Microsoft smartphones have been discontinued due to less product demand, and many folks don’t need them anymore. So with the surface duo, android is coming merged with Microsoft. Meaning, for the first time in history, Microsoft’s phones will support android, and of course, it’s a phone so users can communicate and download tons of apps from the google play store.

Display and design

It boasts a 5.60″ IPS LCD dual multi-touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels and 515Pixel per inch density. The quality of display seems pretty crisp, the icons and tabs are interactive in such a way that you can drag and drop to secondary display and in a matter of seconds, the device can easily be converted into a tiny laptop. In terms of design, Microsoft is taking less interest in making the smartphone-like models, So the surface duo is slightly broader similar to the tablet, and also, the length is quite minimal. It will ship in two distinct color variants, including phantom black and phantom blue
