The Surface Duo’s two-year-old Android OS will be updated sometime this year - Ars Technica

If Microsoft wants to be taken seriously as an Android manufacturer, one of the things it will need to establish is a track record of reliable, on-time software updates.

But as the company launches a second generation of the Surface Duo and the company's first Android phone turns a year old, so far Microsoft has failed to impress.

Samsung usually rolls out Android to its latest flagship three months after Google's release, while OnePlus usually takes around a month—Microsoft's one-year timeframe is really bad.

Before, it never really let its customers know when Android 11 would be arriving on the Surface Duo until this latest report, leaving the rumor mill to fill in the gaps.

It would be nice to get a timeframe for Android 12 releases, given the latest update will be out any day now.

Unsurprisingly, the Windows-maker didn't have a lot of Android OS engineers on staff at the time, and Microsoft ended up outsourcing the Duo's OS development to a company called "Movial." Microsoft ended up acquiring Movial just two months before the Duo's release date, which doesn't sound like ideal timing.
