Microsoft today announced something of a surprise during an event this morning in New York City: A new foldable Surface Neo counterpart with phone functionality.
It’s called the Surface Duo, and it runs Android instead of Windows.
The outer shell of the Surface Duo is rounded, much like that of the Surface Neo.
Inside is a front-facing camera and dual 5.6-inch displays (8 inches when unfolded) of an as-yet-unknown resolution attached by a 360-degree hinge, and around back and under the hood is a Surface logo etched in glass and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 system-on-chip, respectively.
You won’t find a rear-facing camera, though.
On the software side, the Duo has full access to the Google Play Store and sports a custom skin aligned with the recently announced Windows 10X‘s aesthetic.
