The presentation of the Surface Duo by Microsoft has generated a lot of questions, including: why choosing Android? Why two screens and not a foldable screen? And finally, will the Surface Duo have a world-class camera?
The prototype that was presented at the beginning of October integrates only a front camera. Above one of the screens. Which one imagines could become a back camera thanks to the hinge. We are far from the two to four cameras that other manufacturers offer, and especially given the thickness of the device, it is difficult to imagine that the camera module of the Surface Duo offer the same as its competitors.
The Surface Duo will have a world-class camera
Panos Panay, in charge of all devices marketed by Microsoft, including the Surface Duo, answered questions from WindowsArea‘s journalists on the subject during his visit to Germany. He first said that Microsoft was aware that this was a crucial topic for many people.
Today it is true that the quality of the camera has become one of the crucial criteria. To differentiate a good and a bad smartphone.
We don’t know all the details about the Duo Surface yet. He added “of course we are working on a world-class camera”. It’s hard to know if the firm will be able to modify its design enough to really propose something. At the level of the proposals of Apple, Google, Huawei or Samsung on this subject.
It is worth to mention that previously, Panos Panay has revealed another information on the future Microsoft foldable smartphone. According to what has been suggested by the head of the Surface division during the presentation event in Berlin, there is the possibility that the device could be launched without the support of 5G. This would be a little revealing today but it could represent a heavy deficiency at the end of 2020.
