Lucifer , 05 Aug 2020Are we still in the year 2007? If no why the fat bezels! they are used for speakers etc. come on man microsoft came up with something new. tougher and better optimizedui appeal

If the price will be right. And, loking by the specs, I mean no more than 300-350€, as Realme X3/SuperZoom costs 450, but has bigger battery, OCed S855, more RAM (and it's expandable!) and NFC. 2nd screen won't explain higher price.

Microsoft always comes with idea and always ruin it with their hardware combination. Why will a device with 5.6" (x2) has just 3.4mAH battery?
Why is there no expandable storage? Why is NFC not included? The RAM is also inadequate

SK, 26 May 2020When it comes to hardware, microsoft is the dumpest, as always.when you call someone dumb, you should check your spelling. Otherwise it has the opposite effect

They shouldn't waste money on launching this product with sd 855 and 8gb ram with no nfc. Nubia red magic half price (very confident) is like 12 gb ram sd 865 with built in cooler. Why would anyone buy this?

It is the mixer of laptop and phone

joe nodden, 19 May 2020"they said they already finalized the design" Alright there... moreNow I definetly agree with you, they certainly could have refined the design in 2020.

JDK, 18 May 2020Most likely, because they said they already finalized the d... more"they said they already finalized the design" Alright there's the conclusion we've come to. No need for further wording.

Hopefully this isn´t the surface duo. I would have been glad if microsoft released this surface duo for the holiday season for a lower price, then release an 875 version with maybe better cameras later.

joe nodden, 18 May 2020Ok so you realize that even if the modem wasn't there, Micr... moreMost likely, because they said they already finalized the design.

But if qualcomm´s chip didn´t require a mandatory 5G modem, it would be simmilar size to the 855. Notice I didn´t say exact.

That would have given microsoft a greater incentive to upgrade to the 865. Since qualcomm requires a 5G modem to come with the 865, it´s just too big to fit for microsoft´s design.

JDK, 17 May 2020No, of course not! Why can companies manage to put in a new... moreOk so you realize that even if the modem wasn't there, Microsoft still would've stuck with the 855, correct?

albertchrstian, 17 May 2020Is that so, I really just found this out if AMOLED reduces ... moreIt's about the pixel submatrix. On a standard monitor, you have a red dot, a green dot, and a blue dot that together make a pixel. On an OLED panel with a pentile matrix the pattern is red dot, green dot, blue dot, green dot again. One pixel in that layout is a red green or blue green pair. The upshot of this is it's cheaper to make (1/3rd fewer subpixels per pixel!) but you need to combine multiple pixels to make a traditional RGB pixel, so you effectively have a lower resolution. This shows up when viewing fine detail on a pentile OLED display.

It has the likeness of a concept, judging from the specs.
This could prove a great thing if a few things would change.
1. Battery life
2. Size (way too big to be pocketable)
3. Third Party adoption for the splitscreen
Forget the 5G Modem. Standards and availability are still to be sorted out all over the world.
Let's talk about that in about 1.5 - 2 years.

And we tell Microsoft: keep it in your pocket...no one will want to buy an ancient phone!

joe nodden, 17 May 2020You seem to think it would be as simple as taking the 855 o... moreNo, of course not! Why can companies manage to put in a new chipset every year and not stick to older chipsets?

It's just that this year the 865 mobile platform(chipset+5G modem) is larger than usual.

albertchrstian, 17 May 2020Is that so, I really just found this out if AMOLED reduces ... moreAnswer is really simple. Diamond matrix.

JDK, 17 May 2020Sorry, I was talking about other phones like xiaomi, samsun... moreYou seem to think it would be as simple as taking the 855 out of a socket and putting the 865 in if they didn't require the modem.

Way to late to the party with old hardware and what is bond to be a high end price
