Microsoft''s dual-screen Surface Duo 2 handset has begun rolling out the June update, which measures about 736MB in height and allows users to check for notifications when the Surface Duo 2 is folded. Alongside these improvements, the June update introduces a few additional improvements and general performance improvements.
According to the Microsoft support page for the Surface Duo 2, the Glance Bar will now provide notifications from third-party messaging apps. Prior to this update, the Slim Pen 2 will only receive SMS, voicemail, and Microsoft Teams alerts. With the June update, the Slim Pen 2 will receive an automatic firmware upgrade when combined to the handset over Bluetooth. This will enable the Slim Pen 2 to automatically connect to the Surface Duo 2 when used on one screen.
The Surface Duo 2 will now include improved camera capabilities in the dual-screen mode for applications with dynamic orientation. This increase will also allow the battery to charge gradually overnight, which is expected to prevent the battery from becoming older rapidly. Additionally, a device Firmware Configuration Interface (DFCI) has been enhanced to ensure screen appearance, stability, and touch responsiveness.
The Surface Duo 2 was released in September last year. It features two 5.8-inch PixelSense displays that provide a combined viewing experience of 8.3-inch when unfolded. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC and has a 4449mAh battery.
