Microsoft recently released the Surface Duo smartphone with two displays and the Android operating system. It immediately became known that the frame around the charging connector often cracks, and there was also information about a weak signal and high latency during data transmission.
Shortly after the launch of this device in the United States, the company decided to stop distributing it in other regions. Now Microsoft plans to launch Surface Duo in different areas, starting in the European market early next year. It is noteworthy that the device has already passed certification in Japan, the UK, and Canada.
