With the launch of the Surface Duo expected any time now, the device has been making its way around regulators to receive certifications. We’ve seen it land at the FCC in the U.S., along with a global certification company to receive certifications for Canada. Now, the Duo has stopped by Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, suggesting it will see a launch there within the coming weeks or months.
Spotted Japanese publications S-Max.jp, the certification filings list Microsoft Corporation as their owner. The model number listed is 1930, which is the same model number we’ve seen in other documents in relation to the Surface Duo. From S-Max.jp:
From the authentication information published by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, we have obtained 2.4 and 5.xGHz and Bluetooth authentication for 2.4 and 5.xGHz of W-CDMA-based Band I and VIII in 41 and 3G, as well as Band 39 (sXGP) and 41 and 3G of the FDD-LTE band 1 and 3, 8, 18, 19, 26, 28, TD-LTE type Band 39 (sXGP), 4G, and wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) in 4G.
