Microsoft Surface Duo is one of the most anticipated devices this year. The software giant first showed it off in October 2019. The smartphone was expected to go on sale closer to winter, but now it has appeared in the FCC database, which usually means the device will launch soon.
According to the FCC publication, discovered by the Internet resource Droid Life, the North American regulator tested both screens, the hinge mechanism and, of course, the network capabilities of the device. The results of one of the tests mention the presence of an NFC module, but the publication Windows Central claims that it will not be possible to use it for contactless payments.
Microsoft itself promised to release its first smartphone in many years for the 2020 New Year’s season. However, there is now a high probability that Surface Duo can be purchased even before the holiday season, because the nondisclosure agreement with the FCC is valid until October 29, after which the regulator will publish a photo and detailed specifications of the device, and Microsoft probably does not want its characteristics to be disclosed. before the official release.
According to previous leaks, the first Android device in the Microsoft Surface family will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip paired with 6GB of RAM. Its main feature will be the presence of two 5.6-inch AMOLED-displays, which will complement each other. The Surface Duo is expected to have one 11MP camera, Android 10, and support for the Surface Pen.
