I can't believe how thin Microsoft made the Surface Duo

I can't believe how thin Microsoft made the Surface Duo

Microsoft finally put the Surface Duo up for pre-order earlier this month, following a year of teases, leaks, and rumors. I received my Duo review unit earlier this week, and while I'm still getting a feel for what it's like to use, one aspect of the device has stuck out to me more than anything else: how thin it is.

Microsoft's wild new folding phone, the Surface Duo, is close to release. We already talked a bit about the device in our unboxing, but one question was brought up a few times — will the Surface Duo fit in the average pants pockets? The answer is probably, but it depends.

Microsoft commits to 3 years of major Android OS updates for the Surface Duo

After months of anticipation, Microsoft formally announced the Surface Duo for pre-order yesterday. It's a pretty unique device with dual 5.6-inch AMOLED screens, Surface Pen support, and a 360-degree hinge — but that's not all it's got going for it. Microsoft has revealed that it plans to keep the device updated for as long as Google's own Pixel devices: 3 years of OS upgrades and security patches.

What's a phone? The Surface Duo breaks our definitions

What's a phone? The Surface Duo breaks our definitions

Microsoft's been teasing the Surface Duo for the last year, and it's finally here — well, available for pre-order, anyway. But the entire time we've been talking about it, it's been difficult to pin down what exactly the Surface Duo is. Intuitively, we want to call it a phone. It's kinda phone-sized when folded up, it runs an operating system some phones do, and you can do phone stuff on it. But is it really a phone?

It has been almost a year since Microsoft first teased the Surface Duo, which was not only the company's first dual-screen phone, but also its first Android device in general (not counting the short-lived Nokia X devices that it acquired along with Nokia).

Microsoft is bringing Android OS development for the Surface Duo in-house

The dual-screen Surface Duo is slated to be Microsoft's first Android device, but most of the work involved in porting Android was done by a contracted team of developers. Microsoft seems sure of the Duo's success (whenever it is released), as the company has now acquired the external development team, and development on a Surface Duo 2 has begun.

Chrome for Android possibly adding proper support for dual displays

Chrome for Android possibly adding proper support for dual displays

With devices like the LG V60 and Microsoft's upcoming Surface Duo, phones and tablets that feature multiple screens are becoming more common. The benefit of having multiple displays when using Chrome on desktop is having two tabs open in full screen at the same time. Now some new code added to Chrome's source points to full-featured dual-screen support coming to Android, as well.
