Microsoft Announced an Android Foldable Phone
After the failure of Windows phones back in 2017, Microsoft decided to back in the mobile market. A new thing is, the phone will not be running on a Windows operating system because we have seen in the past, what happened with windows phones. So the first phone from Microsoft is going to be foldable and it will be running on the Android operating system.
Microsoft Surface Duo – A Android Phone
The Microsoft foldable Surface Duo is showing up on Wednesday at its annual Surface hardware event in New York. According to Microsoft, the phone will be launching in the summer of 2020. As we said the phone is running on the Android operating system but it has its own custom skin, and it’s still in the development, from the look it looks like Microsoft has also implemented some of the Windows 10x features.
The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 which is built on 7 nm technology, so yes performance is going to be pretty good. For now, there is official confirmation regarding the camera, so if anything comes up then it will be updated here.
By the way, the foldable Surface Duo has two 5.6-inch displays that expand to an 8.3-inch device. The phone is totally different from Samsung Galaxy fold because the foldable Surface Duo has two separate displays.
“This product brings together the absolute best of Microsoft, and we’re partnering with Google to bring the absolute best of Android in one product,” Microsoft Product Chief Panos Panay said. “This is industry pushing technology.”
By the way, Microforst is not the only compnay that has a foldable phone, before foldable Surface Duo, Samsung also comes up with Galaxy Fold which you can buy from Samsung online store. We have also seen Huawei foldable phone, Motorola is also working on the foldable phone and many other mobile companies have launched foldable so far.
So let’s see what new Microsoft brings us with foldable Surface Duo.
