Microsoft might be putting a real camera on the Surface Duo 2

When Microsoft's Surface Duo shipped last year, it represented Microsoft's return to the smartphone space, although it's an Android phone this time. Unfortunately, the device was problematic.

The Microsoft Surface Duo gets a massive price cut as it prepares for its European launch

I really like the design of the Microsoft Surface Duo. I like the concept of foldable phones mostly because the design means that the screen won't get scratched up.
