Gustave Monce remains focused on delivering the full Windows 11 experience on the Surface Duo. Microsoft’s foldable device, originally running Android, can take advantage of the benefits of the desktop operating system to offer the experience that the Surface Neo could never provide.
After managing to make Windows 11 practically functional on the Surface Duo, now he remains focused on improving the experience and optimizing the operation of the software. To do this, keep updating the project with small news, while starting to do the same practice with the Surface Duo 2.
The latest Windows 11 news on the Surface Duo focuses on the Surface Slim Pen
With version 2303.64 of the Windows 11 project on the Surface Duo, Gustave Monce has focused on the possibilities offered by the USB-C port when connecting the Surface Slim Pen.
For example, it will now be possible update the firmware of the charging base of the Surface Slim Pen, which is necessary for you to charge the second iteration of the stylus device. Also, when you plug in the pen, it will automatically pair with the Surface Duo.
Of course we can also update the firmware of the Surface Slim Pen 2, which will automatically charge when connecting the USB stick to the charging base. Also, unplugging the stylus will wake the Surface Duo from sleep.
In addition to these improvements, we found the following list of new features in version 2303.64 of the Windows 11 project on the Surface Duo:
- Touch controllers are now shared between both devices.
- Now it is possible to use OTG devices without too many complications.
- The ability to upload is back in this update, no BSOD issues.
- [WIP] Updated the calibration for pens and touch. Not all changes are available at this time, so the calibration might not be applied with this update.
- [WIP] Added support for DisplayPort over USB-C.
- [WIP] Once the camera drivers are updated, the Camera app will start, but it won’t do much else.
- [WIP] Updated sensor drivers to support the geomagnetic orientation sensor.
