Microsoft said to be delaying the launch of the Surface Neo till 2021

The Microsoft Surface Neo may not hit retail shelves during the holiday season at the end of the year. 

A source familiar with the matter told CNBC that several of Microsoft's plans for 2020 have changed due to the global Covid-19 outbreak. This included delaying the launch of the Surface Neo, pausing the development of Windows 10X, and getting it to work on single-screen devices first.

ZDNet also reported the same news and added that the launch of the Android-powered Surface Duo remains on track.

Microsoft unveiled the Surface Neo and Surface Duo in October last year. The Surface Neo has two displays held together by an intricate 360-degree hinge, and can be used in multiple ways. The Surface Duo is a dual-screen phone that runs on some form of Android that is heavily skinned to look like Microsoft.
