It looks like Microsoft has ended production on the Surface Duo 2 and it’s no longer available new
to update: Most Best Buy locations are out of the Duo 2. Microsoft gave the following statement to Windows Central About availability:
We realize that supply is currently falling short of demand in many markets. While we don’t have stock information to share at this time, the Surface Duo remains an important part of the Surface lineup. “
The original story continues below.
Unlike Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4, the Duo 2 has two 5.8-inch screens joined by a hinge to form a single 8.3-inch screen, making it about the size of a tablet. The hinge is clearly visible, but you won’t notice it after some time, and even foldable phones have a crease, so smooth bendable screens aren’t really a thing anyway.
The 360 hinge can keep the device in any position you want. So, for example, you can fold one screen back and use the Duo 2 like a traditional phone, use it as a tablet, use one app on two screens to do different things, or use the tent position to play games with your Bluetooth controller.
Duo 2 is powered by the Snapdragon 888 chip which is fast enough and delivers a powerful performance. It has a triple rear camera and a selfie camera combo and they take detailed pictures in most lighting conditions.
The base Surface Duo 2 launched at $1,499.99 and Best Buy is currently selling it for $824.99, so you’ll save $675. You can get better specs phones for this price but none of them can match the Duo 2’s multitasking capabilities.
