What is new in the November 2021 firmware update for Surface Duo?

As it was with the last six updates, the November 2021 firmware patch for the first-gen Surface Duo brings only general Android security fixes. Here are the version numbers for Surface Duo in North America, AT&T-locked devices, and Europe:


  • North America: 2021.1019.24;
  • AT&T: 2021.1019.25;
  • Europe: 2021.1019.26;

The update requires a puny 42MB of free space, which is no wonder considering the changelog contains only one thing:

  • The update addresses scenarios outlined in the Android Security Bulletin – November 2021.

Microsoft says Android 11 for the original Surface Duo should arrive "before the end of this year," which means Microsoft has a little more than a month to deliver its promise.

It is worth mentioning that the second-gen Surface Duo is yet to receive its November 2021 firmware update.
