Microsoft’s Surface Duo is the first pocketable Surface device. It looks & feels like a miniature tablet that is also a phone. Microsoft isn’t the  only first company to make a smartphone with two displays — but it is hoping to be the first that is really successful and gain market trend. ZTE’s Axom M hit the market in 2017 but didn’t exactly become successful. LG this year launched a Dual Screen attachment for its first 5G phone, the V50, as well as a version for its LG G8X ThinQ phone. But LG’s device hasn’t generated the same applaud as foldable phones from Samsung and Huawei and even rumored foldables from companies like Motorola

Microsoft has been working on the Surface Duo hardware for last three years, so this is not an immediate response to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold, Huawei’s Mate X. The company used two separate glass displays instead of folding plastic, and it is clear Microsoft thinks this is the way forward until foldable display technology is really ready.  There is a Snapdragon 855 processor inside right now that could be upgraded to Qualcomm’s latest next year. There is also no camera on the outside of the device, and the idea is that you use the one included above the display to shoot pictures by flipping the display over.
