Microsoft’s Surface Duo is potentially one of the most exciting new devices coming out this year, not only because it’s an entry into the new foldables market, but because it’ll be the company’s first attempt back into the mobile phone market since it discontinued Windows 10 Mobile in January. And as more teasers are leaked, we’re always learning more about the device coming later this year.

A new video of one of the devices new features was leaked by WalkingCat on Twitter, which allows users to get a “peek” of their notifications and the time by simply opening the device slightly. A user could also see a glance of an incoming call in this fashion, and then fully open the device to accept or reject it.


Interestingly, the date on the device displays 06/18/2020, which could be a hint of the planned date of an official showing later this spring. Even so, many of Microsoft Surface renders on the company’s website show June 18 as the date on the product’s displays, so it’s still unlikely.
