Microsoft has yet to provide additional updates to its upcoming Surface Duo phone, but fortunately many leaks have continued to keep the hype around the upcoming foldable device persisted. in. After one Lethargic teasing from VP of Android for a tipster recently claimed that we can see the phone August 24 at the earliest, rumors continue to revolve around what to expect from Surface Duo.
Now, a series of lifelike renderings have given us something tangible to examine in detail. Leaker Panda (@samsungbloat) post on Twitter with a series of images believed to be official of the Surface Duo showing the different viewing angles of the device as well as some special accessories that could accompany Microsoft̵7;s foldable display.
The photos don’t reveal too many new features when it comes to the design of the Surface Duo – after all, Microsoft showed us what the device would look like last year. The display has relatively large bezels at the top and edges, though they narrow down to a much thinner shape at the edges. They are connected via a metal hinge that can be seen in one of the close-up images.

Additionally, the leaked photos show the stylus that is supposed to be bundled with the Surface Duo. There’s also a special case as well as a charger and USB Type-C cable for device upgrades. The look of the closed Surface Duo is somewhat reminiscent of the Nintendo DSi, as the device looks pretty substantial even when folded.
As far as to expect from the device’s software, Microsoft has confirmed that the Surface Duo will be an Android 10 device. You can bet that it will heavily rely on Microsoft’s suite of apps. The unfolded image appears to assist with this, with a brief view of the main screen.
Panda also tweeted a potential price point for the Surface Duo, claims that it will start at $ 1,400 in the United States. That means it will likely be lower than the Motorola Razr at $ 1,499, but it will be more expensive than the LTE version of the Galaxy Z Flip. Microsoft hasn’t made any comments yet on any potential pricing information for the Surface Duo, but that’s likely to arrive in the next week or so.
As detailed by Microsoft earlier, the Surface Duo has two 5.6 inch AMOLED 1800 x 1350 displays combined to support multitasking. The device on display last year runs on Snapdragon 855. The leaked specifications suggest the phone has 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. While these stats don’t place the Surface Duo correctly in the range of smartphones like the Galaxy Note 20 (powered by the Snapdragon 865 Plus chip), the upcoming foldable device will be able to keep its own. it’s in terms of smooth navigation between the two screens.
These leaked images give us a great glimpse of what might be coming, but as usual we’ll have to wait for Microsoft to give a final word on what’s around the corner of the Surface Duo. Chances are still a few weeks before we get our hands on the device and see Duo and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 – scheduled to be fully revealed on September 1 – will be quite an interesting show.
