New Microsoft Surface Duo leak paints a polarizing picture
Microsoft teased its first foldable phone, the Surface Duo, for the first time a few months ago. While the teaser got people talking, it didn't quite provide any specific information about the phone. Things have changed, however, as a new leak has now given us our first look at the technical specifications of the Microsoft Surface Duo.
According to the report by Window Central, the Surface Duo will sport two 5.6-inch displays. The displays are AMOLED and carry a FHD+ resolution in a 4:3 aspect ratio. The display plays host to an 11 MP camera, the only one on the phone. It's not a top-shelf sensor either, as it only has a pixel size of 1.11μm and is paired with an f/2.0 aperture lens.
Under the hood of the Surface Duo will reside a Snapdragon 855. Supposedly the unintegrated modem of the Snapdragon 865 meant Microsoft would have to redesign the Surface Duo from scratch. 6 GB of RAM appears to be standard, and storage looks to range from 128 GB to 256 GB. There's a fingerprint reader, as well as support for a Surface Pen.
Battery capacity is where things get funky, as the Surface Duo is said to feature a puny 3460 mAh battery. We're...not sure why Microsoft would do that, as that's a small battery for two 5.6-inch displays.
