Surface Duo smartphone with dual display of Microsoft, shows a video leaked @BitFeedCo.

Unlike Samsung, Huawei, Motorola and Xiaomi who have designed smartphone with flexible display (Xiaomi has not yet launched), Microsoft thinks that the technology is not yet mature, which is why he has developed the Surface Duo as a smartphone that has two displays separated only by a frame very thin.

The official announcement took place in October 2019, with Microsoft which stated that the actual launch will be in time for the holiday season of 2020. The smartphone is being tested by several Microsoft managers (including the CEO Satya Nadella) and, through a new video leaked we have the opportunity to give it a look a little more closely.

The video shows a person, probably a Microsoft employee, that use Surface Duo in both portrait and landscape mode. The fold also, showing off the capabilities of the zipper. The video also shows a flash for the front camera. This was not present in the prototype Surface, the Duo that was shown in the event Microsoft in October. The flash front indicates that the Surface Duo final may not have any rear camera, opting to go only with a front-facing camera. The front camera could also work as a rear camera of course, but one should not expect a similar quality to the modern cameras for smartphones from Google, Samsung, Huawei, Apple and others.

Zac Bowden Windows Central has indicated that Surface Duo could be launched sooner than expected. According to him, Microsoft is now providing different Surface Duo to more employees internally, by encouraging them to use and test the product. We do not know anything of the specific internal Surface Duo, even if the version announced in October it had the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. We also know that it has two display, 5.6-inch, but their resolution is still unknown. The software on board is Android but has been heavily modified by Microsoft to better adapt not only to the dual display but also to its services.
