Best Microsoft Surface Duo 2 deals: July 2022 deals

However, the big changes here are on the hardware side. The Duo 2 uses a 2021 flagship chipset in the Snapdragon 888, bringing 5G and NFC to the device alongside it. Both AMOLED screens are slightly larger and now 90Hz, while there’s a brand new triple rear camera system.
