If you’ve ever thought two screens would help you get more done on your smartphone, you should definitely check out this $200 discount on the Microsoft Surface Duo. The 128GB model is reduced from $1,400 to $1,200 and the 256GB model drops from $1,500 to $1,300 as one of the current Amazon Black Friday Deals.
This is the first discount we’ve seen on the unlocked Microsoft Surface Duo since it was released in September, and it’s unlikely we’ll see this price drop again before the holidays. It’s rare to find such an appealing discount on a new device outside of Black Friday sales. So if you’re looking to grab one as a gift, or you want one for yourself before the new year, you should act fast on this deal.
What makes the Microsoft Surface Duo so special is that it has dual screens that allow you to view two apps at once or see them bigger by stretching across both screens. That’s something our expert reviewer mentioned that allowed for increased productivity in our Microsoft Surface Duo review. The 360-degree hinge lets you drag and drop between screens, use one side to type and take notes while you view the results on the other, or put it in tent mode so you can sit back and watch videos. When folded, it’s less than 1cm thick and could fit in your pocket.
While the Surface Duo doesn’t live up to some other high-end phones with regards to the camera, it does have a single 11-megapixel camera that’s selfie-ready, supports 4K video, and features panorama and portrait modes. And the 3,577 mAh battery is reported to deliver up to 27 hours of talk time before needing a recharge.
