Microsoft Surface Duo’s brand new Peek feature leaked

The dual-screened handset running Android is expected to be officially launched at the Surface event in October, followed by a release during the holiday season.

Microsoft's Surface Duo is potentially one of the most exciting new devices coming out this year, not only because it's an entry into the new foldables market, but because it'll be the company's first attempt back into the mobile phone market since it discontinued Windows 10 Mobile in January. Apparently, the user will open the duo slightly to display a "peeping" interface that shows the time and messages. In fact, a video supposedly demo-ing a feature called "Peek" was recently revealed in a tweet by h0x0d. We feel that opening the whole device during calls or messages will be much easier to do rather than using this feature.


The user can also scroll down through the list of notifications and even dismiss them without unfolding the screen completely. We assume the Surface Duo is vibrating or ringing (video has no sound) - and then the user decides to peek at who it is. Rumoured nearly from the moment Microsoft shuttered the Windows Phone business it purchased from Nokia, the Surface Phone first became a reality at last year's Surface launch event with the promise of actual 2020 availability. And duo owners, like the owners of another handset, want to know the identity of the person who calls their phone before it is picked up. As you'll see below, Microsoft is considering a "peek" UI that lets you view information from the device without having to fully open it. It's a dual-screen device with a physical hinge and two glass displays that will run Android. Microsoft may have research that indicates that yes, users would take advantage of Peek.
