The only "interesting" part of this phone is why Microsoft priced it so high in the first place! If they want to (excuse the pun) crack the market then they need a better design and much better quality materials or reduce the price to at least half of it's RRP.

There was a lot of anticipation around the first release. They just dropped the ball in a few areas, spec wise it underperformed competition. After a couple iterations, this phone can be a very persuasive buy for a lot of people. I'm very interested to see what improvements they made.
So Microsoft thought they will sell more of this phone although it wasn't interesting from the beginning withmore bezels than screen!!??

I really hope foldables become popular enough so that there will be foldable mid-rangers, that would be awesome.

360 hinge? more like 340...it can't open to the max with that camera bump
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2021Same weak hinges as the original...Are you kidding me? No one does hinges better than Microsoft
The Duo was really nice, and even wanted to buy it, but the price was absolutely insane.
It seemed like a perfect phone for someone who also likes to read stuff like manga on the go. But it was basically a more current Axon M. The Axon M didn't have an insane price like that when it was new.

"Dump money into bad ideas"
Microsoft: "Hey, the first one did so well, we should make another one!"
Specs I care for: jack, cameras. It finally got to 50% of my requirements, from zero.

It's too big to be a phone and the displays are too small to be a tablet. It's just a strange form factor. How are you even meant to use it and what is it good for?
to those negative commentators: you obviously didn't use first Duo. It's a marvelous device and concept is brilliant! The only flaw was camera, which now will be improved. Trust me, its much much better than samsung fold, and will last much longer. Reliable foldable screens are still years ahead.
So the leak is suggesting the phone won't invert fully for single-screen mode? The whole appeal of this phone was the hinge engineering - it was unrivaled. If the two halves won't rest flush against each other, it'll definitely feel far less premium in an already ultra-competitive market against other foldables that are already running laps around the Surface Duo in almost everyone's opinion.
