Surface Duo is Microsoft’s upcoming Android-based dual-display foldable smartphone. It’ll also be the company’s first Android smartphone and while people are praising the form factor, specs-wise, the smartphone won’t be on par with the flagships such as the Galaxy S20, iPhone 11.
Microsoft’s dual-display Android smartphone will be powered by a year-old Snapdragon 855 and will pack a 3,460 mAh battery and while the battery capacity seems to be quite low for a device with two screens, Microsoft journalist Zac Bowden claims that the 3,460mAh battery will “get Surface Duo through the day.”
If the Duo manages to serve a day on a single charge, it will be great news for those who really need two screens, as it will help them stay productive for an entire day. However, a word of advice from Zac Bowden: “don’t expect an endurance champ.”
I’m also told that Surface Duo will ship with a 3460mAh battery, which contacts have said is able to get Surface Duo through the day, but don’t expect an endurance champ.
