And, also obviously, the Surface Duo design has advantages in terms of robustness, being able to use Gorilla Glass instead of a fragile plastic for the displays. As ever, the market will decide, though I've a sneaking feeling that Samsung is now ahead by around a year in this particular game.
Anyway, the reason for this LOI is to embed this video from Huawei, showing off this new Mate X variant, the Xs, with faster internals, reconfigured cameras, and tougher plastic displays:
Ultimately, I think that Samsung's Galaxy Fold will win out because of the extra protection, with the flexible display on the 'inside'. Or at least the Fold 2, when it's launched in a few months time, hopefully with larger external display.
But, though with lower shipping volume, the Surface Duo does have a truck-load of advantages in terms of flexibility and robustness. It may have specs and design from 2017(!), but it's still a unique design and all the better for it, even in 2020.
