Microsoft’s first dual-screen Android device is here to stay. In a blog post (which we guess was published a bit early, given the company less talk about news elsewhere elsewhere), the company re-revealed the Surface Duo and announced that it would be delivered. that means the hardware could hit the market ahead of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2, which doesn’t have a release date yet – the company just confirmed that it will be available for pre-order. from September 1.
Like Samsung̵7;s high-end foldable devices, Duo’s hinges and secondary screens will come at a cost. Today, Microsoft revealed that the Surface Duo will retail at $ 1,399, more expensive than many flagships including the newly announced Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra ($ 1,299). However, for a foldable Android, it is believed to be a steal. The Duo is $ 600 cheaper than Samsung’s original Galaxy Fold, and $ 100 less than the starting price of the reborn Motorola Razr. Samsung’s Z Flip folds are $ 100 cheaper than the Duo, but like the Razr it’s a smaller device aimed at those who love flip phones.
