Microsoft is now offering its unlocked Surface Duo 2 128GB Folding Smartphone for $1,000. Normally fetching $1,500, today’s offer amounts to a match of the all-time low at $500 off. It’s only the third discount to date and now arrives as the lowest we’ve seen since our previous mention from back in March.

Having just launched last fall, the new Surface Duo 2 improves on the folding smartphone experience offered by the original with plenty of quality of life changes. Most notably, there is a flagship-class Snapdragon 888 SoC powering the experience alongside the larger 8.3-inch curved displays with a 90Hz refresh rate. On top of stylus support, there’s a three-lens camera assembly around back to complete the package. Get a closer look in our launch coverage

The wireless chime simply plugs into a wall outlet and will notify anyone in the home when the bell is rung. Check out our launch coverage to learn more.
