The interesting thing to note is that Microsoft has not introduced support for Surface Pen on the Microsoft Surface Duo. The device will be available for purchase in the USA starting September 10.

Further, you can manage the entire Surface Duo experience for employees and protect work data with a variety of mobile device management (MDM) options, including Microsoft Intune. It features dual 1800 x 1350 5.6-inch OLED displays and a premium build. It is said to come with features like portrait mode, super-resolution zoom, and more.

The dual-screen device also sports a single (and unimpressive-sounding) 11MP camera while packing a battery with a capacity of around 3,500mAh. As you can see, the device will not only open up to reveal the dual-displays but can also be folded backward completely so you can use just one of the screens like a regular phone (with thick bezels). Both 4K and 1080p video recording are supported at 30fps and 60fps, with electronic image stabilization.

The key selling point of the Surface Duo is its multitasking prowess powered by Android 10 and running a customized interface that Microsoft believes will be a game-changer for productivity on the go.

The Pac 12 CEOs are scheduled to meet later on Tuesday, with their decision reportedly heavily influenced by the Big Ten . Franklin said on ESPN's "Get Up" show Tuesday morning that the confererence should wait for making a decision.

The Surface Duo will go on sale September 10 starting at $1,399 in the USA, with pre-orders starting today at Microsoft's online store, AT&T, and Best Buy. Microsoft has reworked its Office and OneDrive Android apps specifically for the Duo and third parties like Amazon and its Kindle app are also jumping on board to take full advantage of the hardware.

Microsoft is pitching the Duo as a more useful tool than a conventional smartphone, since it enables users to multitask with two separate apps or web pages at a time. The device packs 6GB of RAM and it comes in two storage variants - 128GB and 256GB.

And if that wasn't enough, recently, noted leaker Evan Blass also released a handful of what appear to be official product renders in a post on Patreon titled "Microsoft Surface Duo for AT&T", which includes an assortment of high-res imagery and a strong hint that the Surface Duo will be available directly from at least one major USA carrier.
