Microsoft is gearing up to ship a second-generation Surface Duo 2 this fall, and today images of what appears to be a near-final prototype have leaked online revealing a new external camera setup with three lenses, housed in a camera bump just like other flagship smartphones on the market.

It’s unclear where these images originated, but Windows Central can confirm that the photos in question are legitimate. Surface Duo 2 features three external cameras consisting of an ultrawide angle, telephoto, and standard lens. The photos also reveal that the device may ship with frosted glass on the outside, and come in both white and black colors. They also show that the fingerprint reader has been removed and likely embedded into the power button, and the USB-C port is now centered on the bottom right hand side of the device.

Windows Central understands that Microsoft is planning to ship Surface Duo 2 in the September or October timeframe, and will feature flagship specs for 2021, including a Snapdragon 888 processor, 5G, and NFC for wireless payments. The device appears to be a major step-up in hardware over the Surface Duo 1, which shipped with outdated specs and without key hardware features.
We’ll be interested to see if Surface Duo 2 ships at the same price point as Surface Duo 1, or if it’ll be more expensive given how many more hardware features it has. What are your thoughts on Surface Duo 2’s external design? Will you consider buying a Surface Duo 2 if the hardware is better than Surface Duo 1? Let us know in the comments.
