On 21 September, Microsoft will present new products in its Surface ranges. On the smartphone side, we should see a Surface Duo 2 taking the principle of the double screen separated by a hinge.
The mobile device has appeared in the certification documents of the American FCC confirming in passing the support of NFC and 5G , including in mmWave band (bands millimeter) thanks to antennas positioned at the front and rear, as well as wireless connectivity WiFi 6.
All this is allowed by the presence of the SoC premium Snapdragon 888 from Qualcomm which will raise the technical sheet compared to the initial model.
The documents indicate that the Surface Duo 2 has been tested in its open and closed configurations to verify that it remains within the expected values under all conditions.
The device should offer two displays 5.8 inches mounted on hinges and its SoC will be accompanied by 8 GB of RAM and 100 GB of storage. At the front, it should offer a photo sensor of 12 megapixels while a triple photo module is visible (on the photos of the FCC) on the back, with a main module megapixels, a zoom 12 megapixels and an ultra wide angle 16 megapixels.
Microsoft should also correct the early flaws in the software part that were noted on the first version.
