Microsoft’s next dual-screen phone Surface Duo 2, is in the works after its first version lackluster launch in 2020. The next-generation kind of phone didn’t live up to the hype it promised.
Users and reviewers had a lot to complain about the Surface Duo cameras, software, build quality, and even performance in some cases.
Almost one year later, and prices have plummeted fueling rumors of the next gen in the works. Microsoft’s next Surface Duo is codenamed “Zeta”, and hopefully, it addresses all the flaws from the previous Duo.
There is no word about pricing about these soon-to-be-released surface duos, they were considered very expensive during their initial launch. Microsoft will reasonably price these products against the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
Prices started at about $1,400 during their first launch and should remain that way in order for the surface product to gain fair market share in the Foldable market.

The surface duo 2 will likely ship in the fall, around September or October when it shipped last year.
For Aesthetics, the current Surface Duo is made of plastic. I would love to see a metal body with the soft premium materials associated with the Surface brand.
Also for productivity, more Surface pen compatibility with magnets and wireless charging will be a strong statement by the Redmond-based company. 5G capability isn’t really needed, as the connectivity structure isn’t robust yet. But it is still a feature to keep the Surface Duo 2 up to date with its rivals.
Microsoft has been trying to position the Surface Duo as a productivity tool, and not as a phone. It’s likely the newer device size could get bigger, slimmer bezels, and a beefier ram of 8GB as standard to cement its productivity prowess.
