All this will be clear after the use of the device and how much it will work on standard use.

Now, with this news, it is expected that Microsoft will launch its amazing premium device as early as possible.
It is expected that the foldable dual-screen device from Microsoft will have astonishing features as we don’t have complete news regarding the device so till the launch or till further news we can expect something amazing and incredible from Microsoft.
