Microsoft promises three years of Android updates for Surface Duo
Google already provides three years of software updates for its Pixel smartphones, and last week, Samsung announced that it will offer three major OS upgrades to its flagships starting with the Galaxy S10. Now Microsoft confirmed that its recently launched Surface Duo foldable smartphone will also get three years of software updates.
This promise includes OS upgrades as well as security patches. It's still not as good as what Apple offers to its customers, but considering how long people keep their phones it's probably close enough so as not to matter for most.

The Microsoft Surface Duo is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC and runs Android 10 out of the box. It has 6GB RAM onboard with two storage options - 128GB and 256GB.
The Surface Duo will go on sale from September 10 in the US, but Microsoft, AT&T and Best Buy are already accepting pre-orders. You can head this way for more details about the Surface Duo pre-orders.
