Surface Duo 2 July Update Brings Camera Improvements

Posted on July 7, 2022 by Laurent Giret in Android, Microsoft Surface, Mobile with 1 Comment

Microsoft has started rolling out the July 2022 Update for the Surface Duo 2 (via Windows Central). After last month’s update enabled haptic feedback control in the Camera app settings, the new bits bring enhancements to the Surface Duo 2’s face detection technology and night mode photography.

With its triple-lens rear camera, the Surface Duo 2 can take much better pictures than the original Surface Duo, which only had one front-facing sensor. However, there’s always room for minor improvements thanks to software updates, even though the Surface Duo 2 won’t be able to match the better camera capabilities available on the latest high-end smartphones.

In addition to these camera improvements, the July 2022 Update for the Surface Duo 2 also improves ink responsiveness in Office apps when writing with a Surface Pen. The release notes also mention improvements to system stability and performance, in addition to security updates for Android.

As usual, Surface updates are rolling out in stages, but you can manually check for updates by going to Settings > System > System update > Check for updates. The original Surface Duo also received its July 2022 update earlier this month, though it only brought stability and security improvements.

    This is my secondary device, "tablet" if you will. It has been a fantastic device and I do like the care and attention that Microsoft is pouring into it. I did use it day to day for several months and really enjoyed the experience. But I did go back to the S22 Ultra for the better camera and better "photo taking" experience. Was always kind of odd to have it fully open when taking photos.
