Microsoft showcased the Surface Duo in October last year. As said earlier, the company hasn't commercially launched the device yet. So far, the company has made some moderate changes to the hardware before the commercial release.

Surface Duo is likely a reference device for the Windows 10X, Microsoft's new software for the dual-screen laptops and other products expected to launch in bigger volumes later this year.
