Microsoft announced the Surface Duo back in October last year. The Android-running Surface is supposed to only make it to the market at the end of this year. But it looks like a prototype has already been spotted in the wild. More importantly, it looks a little different from when it was first revealed.
Twitter user Israel Rodriguez saw someone on the Vancouver SkyTrain in Canada, holding what looks like the Microsoft Surface Duo. And indeed, it looks like the foldable tablet with two distinct screens that we saw last year. But one difference that can be seen here is what looks like an LED flash module on the right panel.

It’s interesting to see that the Microsoft Surface Duo has an LED flash on the front. That said, it remains to be seen if it’s the only LED flash it has, or if it has a rear camera setup with another one.
The phone’s specs are mostly an unknown as well, barring what Microsoft announced last year. Back then, the Surface Duo was said to run Android, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. It made some sense back then, but now the 865 sounds like a possibility as well, especially if the company is sticking to an end of 2020 release.
But as previously mentioned, specs are likely to change. For now, this may be a single prototype variant, possibly with others to come before the company finalises what it wants on its mobile Surface device.
