Smartphones these days are easily able to last through the day. You have phones with battery as big as 6,000mAh supporting fast charging technology. Which is why we’re hoping Microsoft does enough to convince buyers to spend on the Surface Duo.

Microsoft Surface Duo launch delay
Last month, report claimed the company has delayed the launch of the product. Its source is a tweet from the informant Zac Bowden (@zacbowden), writer for the Windows Central media. The tweet said the brand has pushed back internal plans to launch the device.
Bowden says the device could now make its way to the market sometime later this summer. The report doesn’t give a reason behind the delay but it seems Microsoft wanted to go through few more tests for the software running on the device. Microsoft intended to project the Surface Duo as a smartphone. The device made its public debut last year. And unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic ended up forcing Microsoft to postpone the launch.
