Microsoft unveils Surface Duo, a foldable Android phone

Foldable Phones
This is surface two. [LAUGH] I'm super clear. I'm super clear. You're gonna talk about this. You're gonna talk about as a phone, and I get that. And you're gonna talk about it as a communication device. And it does Built those things incredibly well for sure. For sure, you can text. You can write. You do what you want. But make no mistake this product is a Surface. [APPLAUSE] And how beautiful! How beautiful is this product? Not just cuz of the hardware. Not just cuz of the hardware. No, no, no, no. But because of how productive you can be on it. The premium fit finish, the thinness, pretty incredible. [BLANK_AUDIO] All the adaptable postures you saw in Surface Neo enabled right here by that same 365 degree hinge. The two side by side 5.6 inch displays come together in an incredibly powerful way, enabling every single one of the postures you see there. [BLANK_AUDIO] And This product brings together the absolute best of Microsoft, and we're partnering with Google to bring together the absolute best of Android into one product. That unique design ethos innovation Surface brings with every single app in the Android ecosystem. This is industry pushing technology and its technology pushing possibilities. People need to use their phones to be more productive. But phones have their limits. Think about starting a mail,an important mail and then finishing it on your PC. [BLANK_AUDIO] Ever done that? [BLANK_AUDIO] What about when you're on a video call and you're asked a question, maybe, what time's the game? What time are you gonna be home for dinner? What does your schedule say? When's the next meeting? What's the score in your fantasy matchup? What do you do? [BLANK_AUDIO] You get out of the video call, you lose the thing we talked about that might be the most powerful thing on the planet which is human connection, you blur your screen and you go get the information. You're also context switching. Your working memory is flushing. You're right out of your flow. [BLANK_AUDIO] Or sometimes you pull data from one app, yet put it in another. You've switched between those apps, maybe a fricking flyering number or an address or maybe just trying to get an address in your maps. [BLANK_AUDIO] But what if you could just push a button and two screens would light up with the two apps you wanted? [COUGH] We absolutely know scientifically that you will be more productive on two screens. [BLANK_AUDIO] Much more than one screen ever could do. But it has to be elegant. It has to fit in your pocket. It has to be robust. It has to fit in your bag, and it's not just one real estate you need, it's not, it's to find real estate. It's structure the way the mind takes it that seeing down the middle lights the product up in ways that almost impossible to explain because you have to feel it And that space drives you into flow. [COUGH] And the opportunity that I'm most excited about. Announcing this product early is fundamentally bringing developers along with us. Creating API's that create magical experiences. Because dual screens. The idea that you can do two tasks in context switch with ease without losing focus. [BLANK_AUDIO] This is a powerful product. This will come Holiday 2020. We are excited to see what you will do with dual screen devices both across Windows and across Android. [BLANK_AUDIO]
