In 2021, Google will launch Android 12, its new operating system. However, for those who own Microsoft’s Surface Duo, it feels almost impossible to imagine the fact that the phone is still alive. Android 10. Despite the fact that it was launched in 2020 when Android 11 was released.
There’s some good news, but after talking to The Verge, Microsoft has confirmed that they’ll be bringing Android 11 to the Surface Duo by the end of the year.
In a statement issued by a Microsoft spokesperson, “We’re still working on providing updates to the Surface Duo, and we’re working to bring Android 11 to existing customers before the end of this year.” We’re not sure why they just upgraded to Android 11 but Android 12 should be available soon, but otherwise that side of the road should be an update to look forward to.
That’s because Android 11 is expected to get better support for dual -screen devices, so we think there should be some improvements after the update.
But for Android 12, Microsoft has promised at least three years of OS and security updates for the Surface Duo, so it will eventually be updated to Android 12, but it will be exactly someone’s guess.
