Microsoft has not given up on the Surface Duo just yet

The Microsoft Surface Duo lineup is in a league of its own. The unique form factor of the dual screen device sets it apart from both conventional smartphones and the increasingly common foldable smartphones from companies like Samsung.

However, being different doesn’t necessarily mean being better. Over the two generations, the Surface Duo lineup has failed to address major issues such as poor software optimization, lackluster performance, and a garish price tag.

Moreover, it has fallen into the trap of being neither a functional smartphone nor a real tablet – bad at some things and worse at others. So when the Surface Duo 2 went out of stock on Microsoft’s official website for a few weeks in a row, many assumed it marked the end of the ambitious device, whose innovative nature didn’t make up for its poor execution.

However, it seems that this is not the end for the Microsoft Surface Duo. According to Windows Central, Microsoft has officially denied rumors that the Surface Duo has been discontinued. In addition, the tech giant has confirmed its commitment to “update and innovate this form factor”. This information was then covered by 9to5Google in a special article.

Therefore, not only is the Surface Duo lineup very much alive, but it’s very possible for us to see a new Surface Duo 3 in the near future. After all, the line between madness and greatness is very thin and the third time could be the charm.

Windows Central’s article also points to the possibility that the Surface Duo will adopt a more “traditional” foldable screen, bringing it more in line with something like the Galaxy Z-fold 4.

In any case, many have become bored with the cookie cutter smartphone designs in recent years. It’s interesting to see where Microsoft could take us with another Surface Duo.
