Microsoft is reportedly working on a new feature called ‘app groups for its foldable smartphone Surface Duo that would allow users to create groups and let them launch two apps directly into a dual-screen session.
This feature will allow users to easily pre-select and pair two apps to quickly launch in the multi-window view, reports WindowsLatest.
While using app groups, a shortcut will be created and pinned to the home screen, enabling quick access to apps that users access on a regular basis.
The Surface Duo is expected to come with mid-range specs, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, 6GB RAM, and either 64GB or 256GB of storage.
The device will also feature a single 11MP camera sensor above the right display that will be used for both front and rear-facing photos and videos and will be powered by Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB RAM/64GB or 256GB storage options.
The foldable smartphone houses two equal-sized 5.6-inch AMOLED displays. Each screen offers a 4:3 aspect ratio, 1800 x 1350 pixels resolution and 401ppi pixel density.
Surface Duo will ship with a 3460mAh battery and feature USB-C fast charging.
It won’t support 5G, maxing out at 4G LTE speeds instead. It is also speculated that the device lacks support for wireless charging and NFC.
