Microsoft introduces 5 new products in its New York event. However, only two of them catches my attention. They are the Microsoft Surface Neo and the Surface Duo.
Both of them are dual-screen devices which is a first for Microsoft. The moment I saw this, it reminds me of the Microsoft Courier concept that was killed by Microsoft in 2010.
The Surface Neo is running on Windows 10X which Microsoft describes it as an expression of Windows 10. The Windows 10X is a new category of Microsoft OS catered for dual-screen devices. Click HERE to read more about Windows 10X.
The Surface Duo is running on Android and is also functioning as an Android phone with Google Playstore on it. It is a dual-screen device based on Surface’s hardware design.
Check out the official trailer of these two awesome products slated to be available in 2020.
Microsoft Surface Neo
Surface Neo is dual-screen device built for productivity on Windows 10X, an expression of Windows 10. A 360-degree full-friction hinge connects two 9” screens, enabling Surface Neo to adapt to whatever posture you need in the moment. When you open it you have a full-size 13” display in the thinnest LCD in its class. It’s built for productivity and multitasking like a true PC would be – running full productivity apps, with a removable keyboard and compatibility with Surface Pen and Bluetooth® mouse.
Microsoft Surface Duo
Surface Duo is the first Surface to fit in your pocket. Surface Duo brings together the best of Microsoft productivity experiences, Android apps and Surface hardware design into a single device you can take anywhere. And, yes, it makes phone calls. It has two paper-thin 5.6-inch screens that unfold to 8.3 inches, and just like Surface Neo, it can be used in a variety of modes to let you work the way you’d like.
