Microsoft unveiled a refresh of the Surface Duo 2 today that aimed to correct every shortcoming of the original device and then some. So how did Microsoft do, well it’s actually a little too soon, until we get a unit to review that is. Until then, let’s take a deep dive into all the changes.
Surface Duo 2 has received many welcome improvements to its hardware and a few new software tricks as well. To start, Surface Duo 2 is now thicker, coming in at 5.5mm instead of 4.8mm on its predecessor. Next and perhaps the most obvious change is the addition of the three cameras on the back of the device with a 16MP Ultra-wide sensor, 12MP Primary sensor with OIS, 12MP Telephoto sensor with OIS. The large triple camera module on its back improves the camera performance, but keeps the device from fully closing.
Surface Duo 2 features the Snapdragon 888, 8GB of RAM, 128, 256 and 512GB storage options and 5G. Other changes are listed below:
- Dual 5.8″ 90Hz OLED Fusion Displays with resolutions of 1344 x 1892 pixels each (8.3″ Across)
- Thinnest 5G Device
- Improved Hinge Mechanism
- Pen Support
- Glance Bar
