Microsoft back in October last year showcased a foldable smartphone Surface Duo and now an image of the same device has revealed a new front-facing flash that was not there on the original prototype that was shown earlier.

This likely confirms that Surface Duo will not have a rear facing camera sensor, and that the single front-facing camera will be all that the Duo sports, Windowscentral reported recently.
