Surface Duo

The Surface Duo will run Android and can serve as a phone in addition to a smaller dual-screen tablet. The Duo features a pair of foldable 5.6-inch displays--connected by a 360-degree hinge--which provides 8.3 inches of screen space when unfolded. Microsoft has been working closely with Google on the device, Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay said.

While phone functionality is included, Panay indicated that Microsoft itself will be shying away from describing the Surface Duo as a phone.

Like the Surface Neo, the Surface Duo is scheduled for release in the holiday 2020 timeframe.‚Äč
