Microsoft Surface Duo shown off in 30-minute press video
- An official press video centered on the Microsoft Surface Duo is now available to all on YouTube.
- The video shows off the device from all angles and various Microsoft employees demonstrate some of its features.
- The Surface Duo is in the pre-order stage now and costs $1,399.
Earlier this week, Microsoft officially launched the Microsoft Surface Duo, a brand new Android-powered device. The “smartphone” (if it can be called that) is like a mini-laptop, with two 5.6-inch displays connected together by a hinge.
At first, all we had were some press photos of the device, but now Microsoft has uploaded a 30-minute video centered on the Surface Duo. You can see the new product from all angles and there are some nifty demonstrations of its unique features.
You also get to hear some classic Panos Panay-isms, such as “I want you to see what happens, because it’s pretty emotional,” as he shifts the Surface Duo from portrait mode to landscape mode.
Microsoft Surface Duo video: What do we learn?
Unfortunately, there’s not a lot in the video that we didn’t already know. We’ve already seen the device a few times and Microsoft has been talking up its dual-screen features ever since it first revealed it in October last year.
However, we do eventually get to see some new bumper cases for the Duo. If you buy a Microsoft Surface Duo, it comes with a white bumper case in the box. In the video, though, we see the same case in a variety of colors, suggesting there could be more accessories on the way.
The Surface Duo is currently in the pre-order stage. It will set you back $1,399 for the base model, which has 128GB of storage. You can find out everything you want to know about the unique device here.
