Get an early peek at Surface Duo at Best Buy stores


Take an early peek at Surface Duo ahead of its launch.

What you need to know

  • Microsoft's Surface Duo is already on display at select Best Buy stores.
  • There's no master list available, so you'll want to call ahead of time to make sure your store has one.
  • Surface Duo is expected to launch September 10 and is available to preorder now starting at $1,400.

The wait for Surface Duo is bound to be agonizing for thos who are excited to pick one up. The September 10 launch date is only a few weeks away, but you can already get some hands-on time with the phone if you're lucky enough to live close to a participating Best Buy store. According to the official Surface Twitter account, Surface Duos are already on display at at least some Best Buy stores.

If you don't live near a participating Best Buy, you'll also get a chance to check out Surface Duo at AT&T stores starting August 28.

Surface Duo is Microsoft's first entry in the phone space in several years, and it marks the Surface brand's first-ever phone. The dual-screen device is primarily aimed at increasing productivity, offering the ability to open two apps at once. Imagine scenarios like dialing into a meeting on one screen and taking notes on the other.

Microsoft has already optimized several of its apps to work well across two screens, and there are some third-party apps like Spotify and Audible that are on board as well. Expect to see more apps optimize for this experience after launch if the Duo is a success.

Surface Duo is available to preorder now starting at $1,400. You can pick one up at the Microsoft Store, Best Buy, and AT&T.

Two screens are better than one

Microsoft delves into the future of foldables with an ambitious dual-screen device, featuring two ultra-thin 5.6-inch AMOLED displays bound by a 360-degree hinge. This pocketable inking-enabled Android smartphone marks the latest in the Surface lineup, geared for mobile productivity.
