Where You Can Preorder the Microsoft Surface Duo
Microsoft’s dual-screened Android smartphone, the Surface Duo, will hit the stores on September 10th, following close to a year of waiting since its reveal in 2019. It will cost $1,399, but you’ll only pay that much wholesome if you buy it unlocked. Otherwise, you’ll owe a monthly payment if you buy it on an installment plan via AT&T or Best Buy.
The Surface Duo can be preordered via the Microsoft Store, and doing so now should ensure that you get it on the release date. Paying $1,399 will get you the Duo with 128GB of storage, while an extra $100 will double that to 256GB of built-in storage. You can choose at the time of checkout to get the unlocked version or a smartphone that comes with an AT&T SIM card.
AT&T will start taking preorders for the Duo starting at 12AM ET on August 13th / 9 PM PT on August 12th. The 128GB version will cost $47 per month for 30 months, and the 256GB variant will cost $50 per month for a 30-month installment plan.
Please note that if you buy it from AT&T, it will be locked to that carrier. The unlocked variant can work with AT&T as well as T-Mobile and Verizon. If you buy it through the Microsoft Store is a good way to get the unlocked version. Best Buy is taking preorders for the Duo, and you can get either the 128GB or 256GB unlocked phone now to get it on release day.
