Microsoft is expected to announce the successor to its last year foldable, the Microsoft Surface Duo 2 this year. Images of the Surface Duo 2 with triple camera setup have already leaked, but today, popular leaker Slashleaks spotted some of the specs of the upcoming foldable smartphone, thanks to Geekbench.
According to the alleged benchmark, Surface Duo 2 will boast beefier specs as compared to the previous generation. It’ll run on Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 888 chipset. It’ll have four CPU cores running at 1.80GHz, three CPU cores clocking at 2.42GHz, and one prime core working at 2.84GHz. Thanks to Snapdragon 888, it will boast Adreno 660 GPU.
Geekbench scores hint that it will pack on-par performance as other flagship smartphones. The foldable scored 1071 in the single-core test, and 3166 in the multi-core. According to the Geekbench benchmark leaked Duo 2 specs, the smartphone will still run on Android 11, though Microsoft is expected to update it to Android 12 whenever it is available. Other than these specs, the Geekbench test reveals that the smartphone will feature 8 GB of RAM.
Last month, a video of the rumored device popped on YouTube. It showed off the Surface Duo 2’s frosted glass back and the triple camera setup. But, apart from the new and massive camera hump on the back, the Microsoft Surface Duo 2 looks identical to its predecessor, which means that it could be just as fragile as its predecessor. At least the Duo 2 will have the same specs as the high-end Android flagships, though.

The Microsoft Surface Duo may not be the most popular smartphone out there, which explains why it’s always on sale at Amazon.com. Indeed, the device has several interesting features, such as two displays, a thin and light design with a revolutionary 360-degree hinge, and more. However, Microsoft may be getting ready for round two, as recent leaks of what could be the Microsoft Surface Duo 2 reveal a nice upgrade.
We have some rather interesting, leaked images of what could be the new Microsoft Surface Duo 2. The new device is expected to arrive this fall, or sometime in September or October, to be a bit more specific. Now, the image’s source is unclear, but the guys from Windows Central can confirm that they are the real deal.
According to these images, the new Microsoft Surface Duo 2 could arrive with a triple camera setup that may include an Ultrawide, a telephoto, and a standard camera lens. The new Duo 2 is also expected to get a frosted glass finish on the outside, with white and black color options to choose from. The fingerprint reader is nowhere to be found, so this means that Microsoft may have decided to embed it into the power button.
The new Microsoft Surface Duo 2 is also expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, 5G support, and NFC for wireless payments. Now, all of these improvements make the new Duo 2 a more compelling smartphone, as it packs better hardware when compared to its predecessor that arrived with outdated specs at launch and a crazy price tag.
Apart from the new and massive camera hump on the back, the new Microsoft Surface Duo 2 looks identical to its predecessor, which means that it could be just as fragile as its predecessor. The new camera hump may also get in the way when trying to fold the device all the way around, but at least we hope that we get better results, as the original Duo’s camera performance was anything but great.
