Microsoft is speeding up its machinery to have the expected one now available Surface Duo device for the next several weeks, in a launch that would have been advanced to try to be a reference before the beginning of the Christmas campaign.

As seen above, this image was found on the AT&T website.

This is a foldable device.

The front panel sports Microsoft logo.

The picture interestingly shows that the device will feature a search bar with Google as the default, which is quite a departure by Microsoft. The dock on the second screen has Google's Phone, Messages, and Camera apps.

Microsoft MVPs were invited to attend a virtual Surface briefing, presumably for Duo, on August 12. Spotify is the only third-bash application, whilst there is a shortcut to launch each Edge and OneNote at the same time as authorized by the dual-display screen configuration. As we can see, the foldable smartphone won't bring any drastic design changes compared to what we've seen last October, when the Surface Duo was announced.

The Surface Duo will ship with Android 10.

Looking at the hardware side, it seems that it will get its power from the Snapdragon 855 processor.

It will have biometrics supplied via a fingerprint reader. And lastly, the battery will be rated at 3,460mAh with USB-C charging. If we look at various icons found in these images, we'll see several Microsoft- and Google-made apps.

It is expected that the presentation of new items will take place next week - August 12th. Most likely, once the Redmond-based software releases the official launch announcement, customers will be allowed to pre-order the Surface Duo ahead of the start of shipments later this month.
