Microsoft unveils dual-screen devices to enhance productivity and portability

Bringing productivity to smaller and more portable form factors, Microsoft has unveiled two new dual-screen devices along with a wide range of Surface devices at its hardware event in New York. Referring to the dual-screen devices as a new era of mobile creativity, the Surface Neo and Surface Duo will be optimised for multi-task, helping people to get more done on the go.

Comprising two nine-inch screens connected with a 360-degree full-friction hinge, the Surface Neo dual-screen device is built for productivity on Windows 10X. When opened, it will have a full-size 13-inch display in the thinnest LCD and will run full productivity apps with a removable keyboard and compatibility with Surface Pen and Bluetooth mouse. The Surface Duo, on the other hand, is Microsoft's foldable smartphone with support for Microsoft productivity experiences and Android apps. It will feature two paper-thin 5.6-inch screens that unfold to 8.3 inches and can be used in a variety of modes.
