The Surface Duo also supports styluses which makes it great for multitasking and it will also get Google’s tablet and foldable phones-focused Android 12L, which will improve the user experience further. The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and has 6GB of RAM. Storage options include 128GB and 256GB. The phone has a single 11MP camera, features a side-mounted fingerprint reader, and packs a 3,577mAh battery.
We have the freedom to spend money on interesting, experimental phones that we may not normally purchase, like the Microsoft Surface Duo, because it is Amazon Prime Day. The original Surface Duo was released in September 2020, and a newer model has since replaced it. It was quite pricey at launch, starting at $1,399, but it is still a unique phone with two 5.6-inch screens connected by a hinge, as opposed to a single tablet-sized display that folds in half.
What makes the Duo so special is that it’s Microsoft’s first Android phone, but it didn’t really sell too well, partially because the launch price of $1,399 was too much for even the most die-hard Microsoft fans. The phone can be yours for just $400 today and while it’s not as specced out as other phones that Amazon is selling at discounted rates, its fun, quirky design makes it stand out and worth a look.
