The company has worked on the bugs and equipped it with three cameras, an updated processor and a new hinge.
Microsoft has revealed a new model of a smartphone with a dual screen Surface Duo 2. It received two updated screens with a frequency of up to 90 Hz with rounded corners to the center, a notification panel on the side face and the latest Snapdragon 888 processor with 5G support.
As noted on The Verge, the company has corrected many of the shortcomings that were pointed out after the release of the first model. Among the main complaints are outdated processor and camera, as well as too large a gap between the screens.
In the expanded form, the diagonal of the two displays is 8.3 inches. The device was equipped with new screens with a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz. When closed, the panel on the side face turns on — this is part of the displays when folded. It allows you to find out about the charging status, calls and notifications.
Microsoft has improved the hinge and reduced the distance between the displays by rounding their corners to the center in an expanded form. The smartphone received three cameras instead of one — a 12 MP wide-angle, a 16 MP ultra-wide-angle and a 12 MP telephoto lens, as well as an up-to-date Snapdragon 888 processor.
The company claims that they have optimized applications to work on two screens. For example, about 150 games, including Asphalt Legends 9, Modern Combat 5 and Dungeon Hunter 5 run on one screen, while the second can be used as a controller.
The smartphone will go on sale on October 5 at a price of $1499
