It was released in September 2020 with Android 10.

Well kMicrosoft were never a stand out company even when they were making Nokia phones. Unless they will come with something trully special and extraordinary they will have difficualities to find their place among other cell phone brands.

      And the horribly fated Kin lol

        zaryan, 12 Sep 2023Microsoft should stay out of smartphone/tablet market it�... moreMicrosoft really does keep failing in the smartphone business, don't they? First it was the Zune (if that counts), then the Kin, then it was Nokia and Windows Phone, and now it's the Surface Duo.

        They really should just stick to their software and other hardware.

          It feels as if Microsoft were never serious when it comes to mobile product. Even Windows Phone failed due to management board and mobile app developers' lack of interest, despite its huge potential to be an Android-iOS duopoly disruptor, especially when Microsoft introduced Continuum two years before Samsung DeX and Huawei EMUI Desktop are even a thing. I'm still using my Lumia 950 as my second SIM today, and I can easily vouch that it still remains fluid and smooth as day one, unlike my Galaxy Note 4 that now shows noticeable lag despite no heavy use.

            Looks like Microsoft gave up, yet again.

                Microsoft should focus on Windows not on Android for sure...isnt their beach, they shiuldnt never launch and Android product ever. Dont make sense.

                Its like boa Microsoft make a laptop with MacOS...why?! If they have their own OS?! Dude...MS CEO and CPOs are drUunk.

                    That was a very Microsoft thing to do.

                      Does anyone even use this device. I have never seen one out there, not once

                        RIP all surface duo enthusiasts

                            Another one bites the dust.

                              I find it hilarious that the company responsible for 70% of the world's OSes on computers and laptops, cannot support their own product for more than 3 years.

                                Who have this to update the phone😂

                                    Hzzif, 12 Sep 2023I wonder why this thing kinda flopped in the first place An overpriced foldable that wasn’t really a foldable.

                                      oh no, its not like microsoft cant afford to have a software team for another year to keep their promise of 3 years.
