Analogies that Im, using so far in this video, were going to talk about how a surface Duo 3 that, rather than being two independent screens as we currently have on Duo and Duo 2, one that is going to be presumably a single folding OLED. How that device could not only work but could still emulate? Maybe we could say the dual screen experience in a way that is strong enough to differentiate itself from the plethora of folding OLED screens in a way that could still kind of make it truly a surface Duo, while only having a single screen and to do this, We need to very very quickly compare and contrast between Duo and something like the fold 4. so with the Galaxy Z, fold 4, which is what Im using here and I swear if one more person tells me that this is clearly a fold three, because my camera Is black I may just I dont know what Ill do, but this is a full board. Trust me that is the setting and good luck. Um anyways on the fold for the default behavior is like it is on any other device when you open up an application. Whatever it might be, like the Play Store its going to open it up in a full screen setting, that is the default Behavior. The secondary behavior is to grab an app and drag it onto the screen to split screen. Now, if we rotate this thing around in this direction, this becomes quite a nice multitasking experience.

Now there is one really big problem here. Your gestures swiping to go back on either screen is dependent upon the last used app. So my last used app was YouTube. Even if I swipe back to go home on the left side, YouTube will go back and in this case, going back would actually close the app. So those are the two biggest distinct functions about the fold for When comparing two surface Duo, the default action is full screen. Lets call that spanning right lets. Imagine that there is an invisible partition down this screen right, so the default behavior is to span the secondary behavior is to split screen and gestural navigation is not dependent upon the last application used now on Duo 2 to very quickly demonstrate this. Imagine if you will that this is a single folding, OLED screen and Im going to let you visualize this very clearly here in just a moment. The default action is to open the app in split screen in that view, and the secondary action is to span it right. So that is how this works and now, of course, on duo or Duo. 2. The gestural navigation is not dependent upon the last app used. It is dependent upon the side of the screen that you are using it now Im going to pull out out something that I think is going to help us visually kind of demonstrate what Im getting at here, and it is a laptop dock or a lap dock.

By you, perfect Im going to plug my Duo into and its going to kind of give us the illusion of a single screened surface Duo: 3.. Okay, so this is the lap dock here were going to power this thing on and were going to plug our surface Duo 2 into it. Unfortunately, we have to leave the duo to like partially open for this to work, but there we are. We are now displaying on this screen. Lets go ahead and fold this back so that you can see it more clearly and well zoom in okay, as I have said on this channel before, for all intents and purposes, this is precisely how Android sees surface Duo and Duo to Android does not see a Hinge in the middle of this device – okay, it just doesnt, so the software that makes this work and again, if I launch an app its going to launch in split screen on that side of the screen again contract fasting against this, where it launches the app in Full screen as the primary function: this is the primary function. It is simply split screen and leaving half the screen open. So you can launch another app. Likewise, if you, I guess, YouTube, probably makes more sense. If you span that app in the middle, you go full screen, so hopefully you can understand. This were just simply switching what the default action is from being full screen to being split screen and again, just like I demoed on Duo itself.

If we go into a thing here, lets go into GTA Chinatown Wars. If I swipe back to go home on that side, I guess I should do it over here. If I swipe back over here, the gestures are going to be dependent upon what side it is on. So all of this works in my mind fairly well, even though theres no physical hinge down the middle. This software could be exactly like this. On a single, screened, surface, Duo, 2, and it would behave effectively identically to a surface Duo, one or two. But it would give us the the. I think, the Fairly large benefit of being able to take a video and span that thing and Go full screen. And now we have a multimedia experience that is more similar to or just as good as what we have on a device like this. I think for me the biggest question is going to be in actual usage right, youre. Actually, using this device does the lack of a physical partition between those two virtual screens have any real world impact on the way that I use the device, and at this point I will tell you I would lean towards no but Im, not a hundred percent on That because Im not Ive, simply not tested yet, and I can tell you that for me it continues to be surprising how differently I use my z fold versus my Duo. 2 right. These two devices are different and when I pick one of them up versus the other, I behave differently.

Would that software be enough to make me behave the same as I do on my Duo too, on a single, screened, Duo. Three, I just dont have that answer because Ive not experienced it yet now, of course, there are other things right. There are other factors about Duo too, that people really do like they, like the aspect ratio of the screens. The shorter wider screens were going to want to have that. They like the fact that it can go into tint mode and things like that to watch video content. We are almost certainly like 99.999. We are losing that functionality, so a kickstand or something like that is going to be necessary on the back of that device were going to talk about this stuff more in later videos. But you know for this video alone, thats kind of what I wanted to talk about. How can Duo 3 do enough to differentiate itself via software alone against competitors like the z fold 4.. Is that enough is what Ive just described to you that they could relatively easily bring over? Is that enough to differentiate itself from these competitors? I dont know you guys, can talk about this in the comments down below, but that I think, is going to be a really big hurdle for Microsoft to jump, because if youre a look Duo 3 or you know whatever this thing might look like and youre trying To decide between that and a z fold, five or the pixel fold that will surely be out by then I certainly hope theyre gon na have to do something to differentiate themselves, because currently they are differentiated.

They have two screens theyre gon na, lose that so the software has to pick up that slack and you know, look guys. The software has not been great, yet its gon na have to get great really really quickly and stuff like this is gon na have to make a big difference.
