    Last summer, Microsoft unveiled a different device called the Surface Duo, which, unlike other modern clamshell phones, did not have a flexible display and used two screens on each side. Despite many claims about performance and productivity, this device did not receive much attention due to software bugs and hardware defects such as the lack of a main camera and the use of an old processor on the one hand and the very high price and lack of 5G on the other hand. On Wednesday, September 22, 2021 (September 31, 1400), but after weeks of whispers about the presentation of the second generation of this model, Surface Duo 2 was officially introduced to solve the problems of the previous model.

    Surface Duo 2 Many severe flaws and criticisms of Surface covers the former Duo and looks quite more valuable, at least on paper. The design of this model has not changed much and the idea of using two separate screens on both sides of a central hinge with the possibility of opening 180 degrees is still in place. Of course, this is not the whole story, and looking at the exterior of the device, the biggest change in the structure of the Duo 2 compared to the previous year, namely the triple cameras, can be seen. In the Surface Duo, there was no camera in this area, and in the eyes of Microsoft designers, a single top-of-the-line internal display camera was sufficient for a variety of uses. Apart from the camera, the Duo 2 also faces a number of other changes, including the addition of 5G support, a new black color, the presence of a modern processor, and larger screens with higher refresh rates.

    Surface Duo 2 in mode The package has a length and width of 145.2 and 92.1 mm, respectively, which has not changed in length compared to before, but its width has decreased by 1.2 mm. After opening the device, we are faced with a length and width of 184.5 145.2 mm, which has decreased again in width compared to 186.9 145.2 mm. The thickness of the phone, however, has increased and in the open mode it has increased from the previous 4.8 mm to 5.5 mm. This thickness, of course, is still very small, and when the two edges are closed on top of each other, it reaches only 11 mm. Duo 2 has not been very successful in terms of weight, of course, and the larger screen, the presence of rear cameras and the use of a larger battery has led to 34 grams of overweight and the weight of the device to 284 grams.

    The interior of the device has been increased from the previous 5.6 inches to 5.8 inches, which, when put together, naturally create a larger screen with dimensions of 8.3 inches (compared to the previous model 8.1 inches). The AMOLED manufacturing technology of these two screens, which Microsoft still calls Dual PixelSense Fusion Displays, has not changed, and we do not see a big change in the resolution of 1344 x 1892 pixels of single screens and their 1892 x 2688 pixels on top of each other. Both panels are 401ppi, which is the same as before. The new point in this section is the display refresh rate, which has increased from 60 Hz last year to 90 Hz, exposing more fluid content.

    The inner edges of the screens of this phone are curved, which after closing A small strip of them will be visible at the hinge. Microsoft uses this small bandwidth to display notifications, incoming calls, volume changes, battery charging, and more.

    He noted 100% of the sRGB color gamut (and apparently the same for the DCI-P3), a maximum brightness of 800 nits, and a Gorilla Glass Victus protective cover. The outer cover of the device is still an unannounced version of Gorilla Glass.

    The screen supports the phone as before, and this time you can use the new generation of Microsoft pens called Surface Slim Pen 2 in this model. An interesting point is the possibility of magnetic connection of this pen to the outside of the device, which also allows it to be charged. Wireless charging of the pen in this situation occurs while the phone battery does not support wireless charging!

    https://mobiletony.com Introducing the Surface Duo 2 - the second generation of Microsoft clamshell phone with dual cameras, 5G and Snapdragon 888 Now it only takes selfies and is considered a simpler camera. The camera's aperture is still f/2.0, but this time there is no autofocus. </p> <p> Three-way rear cameras are a new feature in this series and are intended to respond to one of the most important criticisms of the Surface Duo last year. The main camera in this section is a 12-megapixel model with f/1.7 and a pixel size of 1.4 microns, which has dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus and OIS image stabilization, and achieves a maximum resolution of 4K/60fps in video recording. The second camera is a 16-megapixel ultraviolet with 1-micron pixels with a lens with a focal length of 13 mm, a field of view of 110 degrees and an aperture of f/2.2. This camera lacks autofocus. </p> <p> </p> <img src=

    Finally, the third and last camera in this part is a 12-megapixel telephoto camera with 1 micron pixels, the focal length of which is 51 mm f/2.4, which creates an image frame that is almost twice the optical zoom . This camera uses phase detection autofocus and OIS. In addition to the camera set, in addition to the LED flash, there is also a ToF sensor.

    Using an older processor was another outspoken criticism of the previous generation Duo, which Microsoft responded to with a modern 5nm Snapdragon 888 processor. The Snapdragon 888 has a 2.84 GHz Cortex-X1 core, three 2.42 GHz Cortex-A78 cores and four 1.8 GHz Cortex-A55 cores, and its graphics are Adreno 660. Another big advantage of this processor is the support for 5G (in both mmWave and sub-6GHz networks), which was also absent in the previous generation. Except for the previous 128 or 256 GB, the device is now available in a 512 GB version, and its RAM has been upgraded with 2 GB to 8 GB LPDDR5.

    Another major change in the Surface Duo 2 The battery capacity field has increased from just 3,577 mAh to 4,449mAh. Microsoft has talked about the battery life of 15.5 hours of video and 28 hours of talk time, except for one hour increase in the latter is no different from last year's model. Wireless charging is still not supported in this model, but now it supports the faster 23-watt Microsoft Surface charger, which of course is not only not included with the phone, but even the same 18-watt charger of the previous model has been omitted.

    The list of connectivity options for the device comes with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, both of which have been upgraded from before (Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5). NFC is another new feature in this model that had no place in the previous Duo. The maximum download speed of 5G in the two networks of mmWave and sub-6GHz of this phone is 6 and 3.2 Gbps, respectively, and in the 4G LTE network on paper, the maximum download speed of 2Gbps can be achieved. USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port with support for DisplayPort image output with 4K resolution and GPS/GLONASS/Galileo/BeiDuo/QZSS routers are other notable items in the communication part of the device. Surface Duo 2 is equipped with stereo speakers, which also had no place in the previous generation.

    https://mobiletony.com Introducing the Surface Duo 2 - the second generation of Microsoft clamshell phone with dual cameras, 5G and Snapdragon 888 This is still being pursued in Duo 2, and the developer is talking about further optimizations for content sharing between the two screens and the expansion of an app between the two panels. In the structure of this model, something similar to the Samsung Flex mode in the Galaxy Z Fold3 is seen, where a specific application depicts its main content on one screen and controls or other side items on the second screen. According to Microsoft, 150 different games, including Modern Combat 5, Asphalt Legends 9 and Dungeon Hunter 5, are optimized for this situation, displaying the game itself on the top screen and its controllers in the bottom panel. </p> <p> </ p> <img src=

    The Duo 2 looks attractive on paper, and its hardware and software upgrades have covered the shortcomings of the previous generation in most cases, but to decide to buy this expensive device, given the not-so-successful experience of last year, you will probably have to wait for the actual version. It was a market.

    Microsoft Surface Duo 2 comes with Android 11 operating system, which is due to the fact that the previous model of this The object has not yet gone beyond Android 10. It is not exciting news for users. This model has been available for pre-sale since its unveiling at a price of $ 1,499.99 ($ 100 more expensive than last year's model) and its presence in the market has been postponed to October 21 (October 29, 1400).
