Microsoft Surface Duo phone price slashed by $ 450 for dual-screen Android Goodness

The noise on the web is that Microsoft plans to sharply reduce its dual-screen Surface Duo device in its online store this Friday, but its retail partners are not waiting. Instead, you can buy one now for up to $ 450 off with activation, or $ 400 if you choose to activate later. Either way, you’ll save several hundred dollars.

The Surface Duo debuted last year with some impressive hardware. Obviously, the dual OLED displays are the stars of the show. When folded, users enjoy a 5.6 inch screen with a resolution of 1800×1350 (4: 3 aspect ratio) and it can open to function as an 8.1 inch tablet with a resolution of 2700×1800 (3: 2 aspect ratio).

The displays are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and 6 GB of RAM. It’s no longer the newest or fastest Snapdragon SoC, but it’s still a bouncy chip. The Surface Duo also features Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity, a USB 3.1 Type-C port, a 3,577mAh dual battery configuration that allows up to 15.5 hours of local video playback and mega-pixel camera.

There are two storage options, 128GB and 256GB, both on sale …

This is still premium pricing territory, as the foldable form factor usually commands these days. However, the steep discounts definitely make the Surface Duo a more compelling option, when compared to alternatives like Samsung’s Galaxy Fold 2.

It is not known how long the reduced prices will be in effect.
