Microsoft’s dual-screened Android phone, the Surface Duo has released, following close to a year of waiting since its reveal in 2019. You can watch the video review above from my colleague Dieter Bohn, then check out the written review here for more insights. It costs $1,399 for the base model with 128GB of storage, but you’ll only pay that much upfront if you buy it unlocked. Otherwise, you’ll owe a smaller monthly payment if you buy it on an installment plan through AT&T or Best Buy.
The Surface Duo can be purchased through the Microsoft Store. Paying $1,399 will get you the Duo with 128GB of storage, while an extra $100 will double that to 256GB of built-in storage. You can choose at the time of checkout to get the unlocked version (compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon) or a phone that includes an AT&T SIM card.
AT&T is offering the 128GB variant for $47 per month for 30 months, and the 256GB version will cost a flat $50 per month for a 30-month installment plan.
Note that if you buy the AT&T version, it will be locked to that carrier. The unlocked version can work with AT&T as well as T-Mobile and Verizon. Buying through the Microsoft Store is a good way to get the unlocked version. Best Buy is also selling the Duo, and you can get either the 128GB or 256GB unlocked phone now.
