Microsoft has released today the February 2022 firmware updates for the Surface Duo and Surface Duo 2 (via Windows Central). The new bits should bring better system performance and stability on both dual-screen devices, but there are some specific updates for each model.
For Surface Duo 2 owners, this month’s update should improve animations and touch responsiveness, as well as camera performance and autofocus. The Surface Duo 2 shipped with 3 different sensors on the back providing much better pictures than the original Surface Duo, though there’s probably still room for improvement.
As for the original Surface Duo, today’s update should bring improvements to UI stability and the Android Auto experience. Moreover, the original Surface Duo is getting support for the Your Phone “Apps” feature that lets users run Android apps on their PC without mirroring their screen. This same feature was already available on the Surface Duo 2 and select Samsung Galaxy devices.
These new Surface Duo firmware updates are now available on all unlocked devices, though owners of the AT&T original Surface Duo will need to wait before the new bits receive their final validation. In case you missed it, the long-promised Android 11 update for the original Surface Duo was finally released last month.
