Microsoft Surface Duo 3 has to be one of the most speculated phones. If recent rumors are to be believed, the yet-to-release Microsoft phone will compete directly with Galaxy Z Fold.

Microsoft seems to have shelved its dreams to develop dual-screen gadgets in a historic move and is now targeting to dominate the foldable phone segment. According to some publications, rumors about introducing a dual-screen phone from Microsoft had been circulating for years before the Surface Duo was unveiled. Despite boasting promising software features, it fell far short of its rivals’ shortage of beneficial design aspects.
