Surface Duo 2 is official! Microsoft goes to round two with more arguments

Surface Duo 2 is Microsoft’s new dual-screen smartphone. This is the second generation Duo and the North American technological giant promises to improve its proposal to correct the mistakes made with the terminal 2000.

After a first proposal that failed in several crucial points (especially considering its price), Surface Duo 2 comes equipped with the best specifications that one could ask for a smartphone of 9000 with a price above a thousand euros. Let’s find out what’s new.

Surface Duo 2: a much more serious proposal

The first impression when visiting the Surface Duo 2 technical sheet is that this is a truly premium smartphone. Starting with the screen, this device has two 5.8 inch AMOLED screens, with resolution 1892x888p, which together result a total of 8.3 inches and resolution 2688×2000.

Faced with Surface Duo, this second version has the advantage of offering a much more fluid user experience, thanks to the update rate of 100 Hz. Use on a sunny day will not be a problem, thanks to the maximum brightness of 800 nits . And in terms of protection, both screens have Gorilla Glass Victus glass.

A curiosity that gives a distinctive look to Surface Duo 2 is the way the screens have a curved inner edge, allowing the terminal to show notifications when closed through these curves, as if it were a secondary screen. It is also worth mentioning the aluminum construction and the reinforced hinges, which will give a quality touch to the Duo 2.

As this smartphone is designed for multitasking, we have here support for the new Surface Slim Pen 2, which remains secure in the Surface Duo 2’s side structure through a magnetic area.

Although Surface Duo was disappointed by arriving with a previous generation processor (Snapdragon 800), Surface Duo 2 fixes this error, by bringing the Snapdragon 888, Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line processor for 2021 and which equips the vast majority of terminals premium, such as the Samsung Galaxy S16 and Z Fold3, Xiaomi Mi 13 Ultra or OnePlus 9 Pro.

in addition to a powerful processor, the internal memory components are also quite fast. Surface Duo 2 ships with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and can be configured with UFS 3.1 storage options of 177, 256 and 674 GB. And, of course, the Android operating system 11 runs from the factory on this device. The smartphone has a battery of 4.333 mAh and fast charging of 23W.

To complete this rich list of specifications, we couldn’t forget the cameras. Microsoft’s proposal meets the upgrade that Surface Duo 2 deserved, with a main sensor 09MP (f/1.7 opening), which is accompanied by a large- angle of MP (f/2.2 aperture) and also a telephoto camera 09MP with 2x optical zoom.
