Surface Duo may allow multitasking
There is more and more information about microsoft’s new equipment, whether in specifications or images.
A recent rumor, advanced this Friday, June 26, by the website Windows Latest, indicates that Surface Duo will bring a new feature called “app groups” or group app. This feature is similar to the App Pair, which comes with the Galaxy and Note range.
According to the site, this tool will make it easier to use two applications simultaneously, one on each screen. This will be possible when the user defines the groups, whose shortcuts are created and pinned to the home screen.
So if you create a group, for example, with Power Point and Word and pair both tools, when you open the group the two apps will open each one on your screen. The user can then use both applications at the same time.
What to expect from Microsoft Surface Duo
According to some information that was being revealed, but unofficially, surface duo is expected to bring an 11 MP camera, a Snapdragon 855 SoC processor, 6GB of RAM and internal storage of 64 GB or 256 GB.
The two displays will be 5.6-inch AMOLED, 4.8 mm thick and full HD 1800 x 1350 resolution, and are adapted to be compatible with Surface Pen.
The Surface Duo battery will have a capacity of 3,460 mAh, with support for fast charging via USB-C. But there is still the note that the current trial version has no wireless charging, nor the NFC option.
At the operating system level, everything indicates that the device comes with Android 10, however it should be updated to version 11.
Microsoft plans to have completed the final version of the apps pre-installed on Surface Duo by the end of June. All these apps will be adapted to work on both screens. And you can see how some of them are going to work here.
Surface Duo should also have a fingerprint sensor and space for a nanoSIM.
Other rumors indicate that the equipment is released on the market before the end of the year, probably already in august.
