In a previous article, we signaled a leak of the newly anticipated Microsoft Android phone. A dual-screen device, courtesy of Evan Blass, that also noted the fact that the Android mobile device from Microsoft could be launched as an AT&T limited exclusive.
Soon after the Surface Duo leak, Microsoft re-unveiled in a panic the device, pricing the unit and also setting in stone the release date.
According to the blog post, the Surface Duo is a way to multitask on the go, combining Microsoft 365 with an ecosystem of Android mobile apps, and will be priced at $1,399 US.
The Surface Duo may very well be the thinnest mobile device on the market right now, with an 8.1″ PixelSense Fusion display connected by a 360-degree hinge, allowing the user to use each 5.6″ display separately or collectively in complete synergy.
The blog post also noted that the Surface Duo has protection built-in at every layer with deeply integrated hardware, firmware, and software to keep your devices, identities, and data security. Confirming the fact that the Surface Duo is a more corporate-oriented mobile device. Confirming this is the fact that a user, or power user, can manage the entire Surface Duo experience for employees and protect work data with the aid of mobile device management (MDM) options, including Microsoft Intune.
Intune lets you manage Google play to distribute a line of business and store applications to your non- enrolled devices in the app protection scenario. As for the launch date, we previously stated that the Surface Duo could launch as soon as the end of this month. The Microsoft blog post clarified this, and according to the company, we can get the device in the US on September 10th form a selected line of retailers.
