Microsoft Surface Duo to receive three years of OS and security updates | Report

13 August 2020 0

Microsoft introduced Surface Duo, its first dual-screen Android device yesterday with a promise to bring it to sale on September 10th. But interestingly, that’s not the only promise that Microsoft is willing to stand by. According to AndroidAuthority, Microsoft will feed "three years of OS and security updates" to Surface Duo.

The tech publication mentions that Microsoft has confirmed to them about the same. This is indeed a big commitment that the company has decided to meet solely for the users going with its first-ever dual-screen Android device. Long-term software support is one of the important factors that the buyers consider while they make their purchase and Microsoft seems to have hit the right chords here.

First impressions of Microsoft Duo are great. It is thin and has an immense potential to give a tough competition to those which have foldable displays and come with fewer capabilities.

It has two 5.6-inch FHD+ OLED displays and almost your every task is spread across two screens. For instance, if you have opened an email on one screen, it will spread through the other screen as well so that you can continue where you left off on one screen and pick up from the other. Microsoft has tweaked its own apps like Office suite to span the displays. Also, third-party apps like the Kindle app have been adjusted to meet the Surface Duo requirement.

Microsoft Surface Duo is priced at $1,399 available for pre-orders as well. It will be available in the US across T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon. Global availability is, however, unknown.
