    Agreed, its just odd, because Microsoft has traditionally only run Windows.

    I know other manufacturers do multi-OS on their machines.

    But, yes, its fine as is.

    That looks really slick. Another nice differentiation from the rest of the Android pack.

    I wonder what the price point will be? I've been playing with the new Samsung S20 Ultra for the last couple of days and while it's an excellent phone, it a. crosses the size Rubicon for me; it's too big for my pockets and is impossible to use even minimally one handed and b: ~$1500 is really expensive.

    Additionally you also have a new LG v60 which while it doesn't have any of the software tweaks of the Duo, it is dual screen (with the case) and looks to sell for under $1k

    <<…I wonder what the price point will be?..>>

    Just my opinion, but based on what I remember from last year's teaser intro, I'm guessing that it'll be between $999 and $1100...

    You have to open the phone to answer a call?

    I like the Duo a lot, but without a pen silo like the Note series, it's a no-go for me unfortunately. I'm also expecting the camera will not be competitive with the Samsung phones. I'm hoping the rumours of a Galaxy Fold 2 with s-pen are correct.

    I can't believe the Duo will come in under $1499...just be too tempting to premium price their device, and tamp down demand a bit because it is bound to be a tough build on V1 (especially with the equally as complex Neo debuting at the same time). @Bronsky may be on to something with sticking to his SG2.
