We might be seeing the Microsoft Surface Duo foldable phone within weeks, if a recent regulatory filing is any indication. On Wednesday, Microsoft filed papers for the Surface Duo with the US Federal Communications Commission, and it's also sought Bluetooth SIG certification, as previously reported by Gizmodo.

An imminent launch fits with a May report in Windows Central that Microsoft was moving up the Surface Duo's holiday 2020 launch. That article also discussed the device's specs: It'll reportedly have a pair of 5.6-inch screens, run on Android 10 and be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor.

Microsoft announced the Surface Duo last October, and doesn't want you to call it a phone

The company declined to comment on the filing.
