Are you wondering if Microsoft Surface Duo is still shipping before holiday 2020? Every new revelation about the device’s features indicates that it will be out soon.
According to a report by Zac Bowden from Windows Central, the hardware specs for the dual-screen gadget are virtually complete.
Also, the writer revealed previously unknown details about the device. One of his surprising revelations is that the device comes with a Snapdragon 855 processor.

Right now, the smartphone market is replete with gadgets sporting Snapdragon 865. The likes of Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, Lenovo Legion Gamin Phone, and others have the advanced chip from Qualcomm.
Still, Microsoft has a good reason to deploy Snapdragon 855, an older processor, on the Surface Duo.
For starters, Qualcomm built Snapdragon 865 for the fifth generation mobile network. But the Surface Duo maxes out at 4G, according to reports. Therefore, it is incompatible with the latest microchip from Qualcomm.
That may not really matter at the end of the day since Microsoft did not conceptualize the Surface Duo with a keen eye on computing power.
Instead, the device should be a game-changer as it is a new form factor with features like foldable displays and multiple screen modes. So, fans expect it to deliver superior, never-tested-before user experiences.
Android 10.0 powers the Surface Duo
Microsoft revealed a long time ago that the Surface Duo will run on Android. Analysts see that as the company’s way of re-entering the smartphone market after failing with Windows phones.
According to Zac, the device runs on Android 10.0. It will receive an upgrade to version 11 soon after launch.
Microsoft has not confirmed any of these reports though. Until it does, fans of the futuristic device can only wait patiently.
