Microsoft is expected to launch the surface duo later this year with snapdragon 855, 6GB memory and 11 megapixel camera. Because the design of the new machine was finalized earlier, Microsoft chose the mid tier specification and affordable chipset.It is described that the surface pen used with surface duo will bring a very natural experience. The reason is that Microsoft developers have put a lot of effort into Android input stack to make touch and pen connect seamlessly between screens.
This enables the surface pen to respond naturally under different pressures and when you drag operations from one screen to another. It also adds gesture operations provided by the system, such as double clicking to capture screenshots or performing a quick click to open Microsoft Outlook.
This sense of naturalness comes from the fact that there is no lag when two Bluetooth devices are used together, or the delay when drawing pictures on two screens at the same time is eliminated as much as possible. Without lag and improved Android input support, the experience will be more natural.
For another example, when the drawing application spans two screens, the stylus will work between the two screens. The improved system will not let you feel that you are sliding the surface pen between two different screens.
Microsoft has also submitted plans in the chromium platform to improve the web browsing experience of surface duo and other products when using stylus such as surface pen.
The surface duo runs Android 10, which Microsoft is said to launch shortly after it launches Android 11 later this year. In early June, the pre installed applications on the surface duo will undergo a round of optimization to take advantage of the dual screen design.
