Land ahead! Microsoft announced the Surface Duo last fall. Back then, the company said that this Android powered handset was supposed to launch holiday 2020.
This was a date that the software titan pushed ahead after it was forced to delay the Surface Neo because it was struggling to get Windows 10X ready. For a brief while there was speculation that the Duo would be here this month, as in July.
However, a new report sets straight the picture, claiming that the Surface Duo will begin shipping the week of August 24.
Less than a month, then, before the device makes it to market.
If this holds true, then this will be nice change of pace for Microsoft. The company typically holds a Surface event where it unveils the product lineup, and buyers are able to order them a few weeks to a month later.
Worth a mention here that this is still an unconfirmed report, as Redmond is yet to make things official. It does come from a fairly reliable source, however. Besides, all other signs point to the Duo being ready for prime time.
The development of the Surface Duo seems to have progressed in a more streamlined fashion. Which itself is a surprise, considering that this will be the first ever Android device that Microsoft will launch.
We’ll just have to a few more weeks.
