Subsequent to Surface Laptop 3, Surface Pro 7 and Surface Pro X tablet, Microsoft introduced the Surface Neo and Surface Duo – folding tablets with two screens at the New York event.
The tablet has two screens, there is a noticeable gap between them in the unfolded form, so the Surface Neo does not belong to the segment of devices with folded screens. It is rather two tablets combined into one dual-screen computer. The Windows 10X operating system, which runs Surface Neo, allows to display different programs on the screens and work with them at the same time.
The diagonal of each Surface Neo screen is 9 inches, both protected by Gorilla Glass. The thickness of the device when unfolded is 5.6 mm, the tablet is relatively light – only 655 gm. Hinges allow opening the device 360 degrees or use in the form of a “tent”. When folded, the Surface Neo is hard to distinguish from a laptop.
The Surface Duo is more a smartphone than a tablet. The device runs on the Android operating system, stylized like Windows. Surface Duo, like Surface Neo, is equipped with two screens that can be opened at any angle from 0 to 360 degrees.
Each Surface Duo screen got a diagonal of 5.6 inches, the diagonal of the dual-screen is 8.3 inches when open. Other technical specifications of the Microsoft device are not known.
Surface Neo and Surface Duo go on sale before the New Year holidays. Prices are not disclosed yet.
