Microsoft Surface Duo.

Several Microsoft execs have been teasing the company’s new Surface Duo on social media in the past couple of weeks, and it seems like the dual-screen device could launch very soon. Yesterday, Twitter user @samsungbloat published official marketing images for the Surface Duo and its various accessories, and one of the pictures shows the dual-screen device next to a Surface Pen and Surface Earbuds in a new dark grey color. Another image reveals the Duo’s charger and bumper case, which we previously saw in various pictures published by Microsoft execs.

In a following tweet, the leaker also revealed that the Surface Duo would start at $1400, though take this with a grain of salt. This price wouldn’t be unreasonable for a new form factor with a premium design, and previous folding devices from Samsung and Huawei have also been priced well above $1400.

Following these latest leaks, Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer Panos Panay tweeted what looks to be a small clip of a new Surface Duo marketing video. The 10 seconds video shows the Surface Duo’s 360° hinge in slow motion, and this short snippet definitely matches the incredible production quality we’ve seen in previous Surface product videos in the past couple of years.

According to previous reports, Surface Duo should is expected to launch this summer, and Panos Panay tweeting this short video teaser suggests that an official announcement is imminent. Do you think the dual-screen device could succeed with a $1400 launch price? Sound off in the comments below.
