Microsoft Surface Duo 2
Microsoft’s Surface Duo 2 is a dual-screen smartphone that, when closed, displays color-coded badges on a glance bar to show how many calls and messages, including Teams chats, users have received, along with remaining battery. When fully open, applications like Outlook can span booth screens to, in this instance, enable quicker email browsing. The Surface 2 Duo can also act like a handheld game device, with the bottom screen acting as the controller and the other displaying the game. The smartphone’s two PixelSense Fusion displays are both 8.3 inches, and they each come with a 90Hz
refresh rate and a layer of nano-coated 3-D glass. The Surface Duo 2’s other features include 5G connectivity as well as a triple lens camera that can take high-quality photos and 4K video.
