The apps that could be integrated with Surface Duo will be compatible for all users in India. Today, Microsoft is giving us details on future support for the smartphone along with a commitment that will let customers they won't be forgotten once the company moves on to the next best thing.

Surface Duo ships with Android 10 pre-installed, but Microsoft promises that the update to Android 11 will be offered rather soon, shortly after the operating system is finalized. Panay said that one of Microsoft Chief Executive Satya Nadella's favorite combinations was using Amazon.com's Kindle app to read books while taking notes with a stylus in Microsoft's OneNote app on the other screen.

But with great flexibility comes great extravagance, as the dual-screen Surface Duo is now up for pre-order at a starting price of $1,400. Even with its 12 month old specs, spud cam, lack of NFC and tiny battery it is set to be a revolutionary productivity device.

The screens can act independently of each other.

Microsoft has previously had success with its Surface devices, which come with detachable touchscreens allowing the device to double as a tablet.

The last Microsoft-made phone was the Lumia 650, revealed in February 2016, which ran the now defunct Windows 10 operating system.

It's equipped with a pen that attaches and charges magnetically on the back and a magnetically attached keyboard that folds over onto one screen creating a laptop-like device, just like the Surface Duo. Microsoft has customized its Android apps to work well with two displays. You can expect several variants of the Duo device including the possibility of storage up to 1TB.
