The DuoWOA (Duo Windows on ARM) project is fast approaching a major milestone. According to the developer, users curious and brave enough to swap Android for Windows 11 will soon be able to keep the two operating systems in dual-boot mode. Gustave Monce, who made it possible to turn the Surface Duo into a Surface Neo “mini”, revealed details about the latest DuoWOA development on his Twitter account.
According to the developer, most people interested in the project want to address three notable things before installing Windows 11 on a first- or second-generation Surface pair. These include the ability to boot Windows without an additional device, dual boot Android and Windows, and lockback the bootloader. All three items will be available to users after Gustave completes the necessary updates and documentation.
Users will be able to choose either Android or Windows at boot by locking or unlocking the device upon turning on the device. This month’s update will also bring other features and restore previously broken apps, such as McDonald’s, Netflix, and banking applications.
Speaking of other Surface Duo news, a new report recently surfaced detailing Microsoft’s next-generation Android smartphone. Rumors claim Microsoft has scrapped its plans to release another dual-screen smartphone. In favor of a more “traditional” one with a foldable display. Also, Microsoft is reportedly working on a traditional slab-like phone under the Surface brand.
Those looking to snag the Surface Duo should act fast. Get the device for $314.99. While supplies last. Unfortunately, the Surface Duo 2 was nowhere to be found, including on Microsoft’s website.
