Microsoft’s Surface Duo 2, which is expected to be launched in October, got its hardware specs leaked through a Geekbench benchmark listing. A video last month revealed the design for the Surface Duo 2 smartphone.

The Original Surface Duo had two PixelSense Fusion Displays to create one expansive 8.1-inch screen. However, the latest upcoming device boasts of two separate displays being held together by a 360-degree rotating hinge. This hinge allows people to use each screen individually or together, across a variety of modes.
