Microsoft was supposedly developing a “lite” version of the Surface Duo 2, which was recently said to have been offered on eBay. According to the pictures, the allegedly leaked phone includes a dual-camera array on the back and a polycarbonate casing. The purported eBay listing has no other details regarding this device’s specs. This Surface Duo 2 model appears to be a “dev unit.” Since the business allegedly canceled this device in 2021, we might not be able to get our hands on it.
On September 22, 2021, the Microsoft Surface Duo 2 mobile was launched. The phone has a 5.80-inch touchscreen main display with a 1344×1892 pixel resolution. For safety, the display is covered in Gorilla Glass. It also has a second display that is a 5.80-inch touchscreen with a 1344×1892 pixel resolution. An octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor powers the Microsoft Surface Duo 2. It has an 8GB RAM capacity. A 4449mAh battery powers the Microsoft Surface Duo 2’s Android 11 operating system. The Microsoft Surface Duo 2 is compatible with rapid in-house charging.
A 12-megapixel (f/1.7, 1.4-micron) primary camera, a 16-megapixel (f/2.2, 1.0-micron), and a 12-megapixel (f/2.4, 1.0-micron) camera are all included in the Microsoft Surface Duo 2’s triple camera configuration on the back. The arrangement for the back camera has autofocus. For selfies, it includes a single front camera arrangement with a 12-megapixel sensor, an f/2.0 aperture, and 1.0-micron pixels.
The Microsoft Surface Duo 2 has 128GB of internal storage and is powered by Android 11. The weight of the Microsoft Surface Duo 2 is 284 grams, and its dimensions are 145.20 x 92.10 x 11.00mm. It was introduced in the colors Glacier and Obsidian.
The Microsoft Surface Duo 2 has Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax, GPS, Bluetooth v5.10, NFC, and USB Type-C as connectivity options. The phone has a fingerprint sensor, proximity sensor, gyroscope, compass/magnetometer, accelerometer, and ambient light sensor.
Windows Central claims a Microsoft Surface Duo 2 model just appeared on eBay. Notably, the phone looks like a matte-finished plastic casing with rounded sides. Additionally, it is rumored to include flat panels without the look bar and a twin back camera arrangement. According to reports, the purported listing, which has since been removed, did not mention this handset’s characteristics. This product could have been a Microsoft mid-range product. However, the article claims that the business canceled it in 2021. This model, allegedly under the codename “Cronos,” was expected to launch later this year at a cheaper cost than the Surface Duo 2. It could have included a Qualcomm SoC from the high midrange.
In contrast, the $1,499 Surface Duo 2 launched in September last year. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC powers it. The phone has two 5.8-inch PixelSense screens that, when combined, provide a viewing area of 8.3 inches. Additionally, it has a look bar so users can check for alerts even when their phone is folded. The Surface Duo 2 has a 12-megapixel selfie camera and a triple 16-megapixel back camera array. The exterior is made of glass, and the frame is strong aluminum.
