Don’t you just love it when this happens? Wait, don’t answer that! Microsoft has done a fairly good job hiding the Surface Go 2 from the rumor mill, but the device is starting to hit headlines as it nears.
The company is expected to launch the Surface Go 2 along with the Surface Book 3 later this month.
And the last couple of weeks has seen a whirlwind of rumors and leaks surrounding these devices, including details from the FCC filings. Anyway, our latest bucket of information comes from WinFuture, who managed to get their hands on the photos of the upcoming Surface Go 2.
They even managed to bundle in the specifications of this device, for good measure.
The images first:
As the photos show, the Surface Go 2 will sport pretty much the same design as the original Surface Go. Only, it will do so with a bigger 10.5-inch display. The outer dimensions are unchanged, however, in order to make it compatible with existing Surface Go Type covers.
Moving onto the hardware, we have the display at 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, with the narrow bezels giving the screen a modern look.
You have two variants of the device, one housing an Intel Pentium Gold 4425Y processor, and the other being powered by the Intel Core m3-8100Y chip. Even the cheaper variant will have LTE, and Microsoft has also packed in WiFi support.
An all Intel affair, though, as expected.
But seeing as the original model was a bona fide success, this one also has a solid shot at making its mark on the market once it launches.
We also have some pricing details, albeit for Germany.
The Surface Go 2 with the Pentium CPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage will apparently launch in the country €459. While the one with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will run €629. A 256GB variant is also set to be available.
No pricing information on the Core m3 model of the Surface Go 2.
But let’s leave that for the official unveil, shall we?
