The Surface Duo and its second-generation variant’s source code are available for download from GitHub for developers and hobbyists who have the required knowledge, free time, and unquenchable curiosity to play with the devices. Having access to this knowledge makes it simpler to develop bizarre projects like Windows 11 on the first Surface Duo. In addition, it reveals intriguing facts about gadgets.
The Surface Duo 2’s kernel source code, according to Gustave Monce (@gus33000), indicates Microsoft may have at some point thought about making the second-generation dual-screen smartphone a Wi-Fi-only device. Nobody is sure of the destiny or use of a Surface Duo 2 without cellular capabilities because the firm has never acknowledged its existence.
Perhaps the rationale was to produce a less expensive Surface Duo that would act as a secondary smartphone, similar to a smaller Surface Neo with an Android operating system rather than Windows 10X.
The mid-range Surface Duo 2, which recently surfaced on the internet, was a Microsoft experiment, that much is certain. Microsoft eventually abandoned the less costly design in favor of the more expensive variant, which is now available for $999 with a significant $500 discount.
