The news comes days after a new report revealed details of an upcoming update to Microsoft’s Android dual-screen smartphones. Microsoft is bringing an Android 12L update to the Surface Duo line of devices that will introduce a redesigned UI, similar to the Windows 11 style design.
Windows Central has released updated design photos for the original Surface Duo and Surface Duo 2 Android 12L. The system brings a blurred background and new buttons similar to Windows 11’s control and Notification center, as well as a set of Settings app ICONS pulled from Microsoft’s operating system, Igeekphone has learned.
The photos also show additional customizations such as color palettes and accent colors, plus a new feed stream section with widgets similar to those in Windows 11. Microsoft wants to make its Surface smartphones look as similar to Windows 11 as possible to provide a seamless experience.
It’s unclear exactly when Microsoft plans to push the Android 12L update. Microsoft previously said the update would begin rolling out “later this year.”
