With the upcoming Surface Duo, Microsoft is seemingly playing both Android camps - it simultaneously deepened integration with its software and services on the phones of the world's largest maker Samsung, and is outing its own Android handset.

When is the Microsoft Surface Duo release date and what's the price? September 10, starting at $1299, so you can go straight ahead to the deal links below, and order one, Microsoft even throws in free shipping. Shocking, we know.

Say what you will about the specs and concept of the Surface Duo, but since it is made by Microsoft, it is bound to generate an abundance of interest, and the company preempted the hype by bringing Duo units at Best Buy and AT&T stores for hands-on experiences by potential buyers. 

Not all of those retail locations got Microsoft Duo units for you to play with, of course, but now that the wacky device has launched, you can save on some deals and promos to knock off that hefty price a bit.

Microsoft Surface Duo deal at Best Buy


Best Buy is offering a $100 discount to potential buyers who order the Microsoft Surface Duo. Instead of the $1499 Microsoft Surface Duo 256GB price, you can get it for $1399 with activation, soothing the blow of having to shop for a phone/dual-screen tablet with last year's flagship processor at this year's flagship prices.

Alternatively, Microsoft is having its own Surface Duo buyer incentive program, offering you a trade-in deal of up to $700 for, say, the iPhone 11 Pro Max, or a top Galaxy S20 line handset, so that you can upgrade from the finest in the industry for the Duo and its two screens plus a hinge.


Any takers? As a reminder, the Surface Duo features two 5.6" displays that become one 8-incher when the device is opened, and is actually still very thin when closed - the only thing that other foldables can't brag with so far. Here's our Microsoft Surface Duo vs Galaxy Z Fold 2 comparison, if you are hesitating between the two.
