The Surface Duo Gets a UK Release Date and a Price Drop


You can now grab Microsoft’s two-screened wonder for a cool $999.

Microsoft’s Surface Duo did not have such an incredible release reception, but it seems the corporate is keen to form better first impressions outside of the US. Not only is that the company slashing the worth of the Surface Duo, but it also features a confirmed release date for the united kingdom market.

Microsoft’s Final Overseas Preparations for the Surface Duo

This news involves us from Thurrott. If you’ll remember, back when the Surface Duo launched, it didn’t receive great reviews. One central detail was how buggy the Duo’s OS was, but another was its eye-watering price point at $1399.99.

Microsoft has been hard at work fixing the main issues that reviewers found, but its high tag still stayed where it had been. However, Microsoft is getting to give the Surface Duo a significant price drop to $999.99.

This drop is probably going in preparation for its overseas release, as critics worldwide prepare to interrupt down the Surface Duo inch by inch. With this lowered price point, plus the Surface Duo’s operating system’s recent fixes, the dual-screened wonder may yet make a positive impression abroad.

Microsoft has also confirmed when UK fans can try the Surface Duo for themselves. If you’re within the UK, keep an eye fixed on electronics retailers on February 18, 2021.
