Microsoft has just released the Surface Go 2 on its official blog, which has a screen size of 10.5 inches and a screen resolution of 1800 x 1200 to 1920 x 1280, starting at $2,988. Surface Go 2 is a portable two-in-one product with a large overall change, with a screen size of 10.5 inches and an increase in screen resolution from 1800 x 1200 to 1920 x 1280, which also means that surface Go 2 has a better screen display.
However, the Surface Go 2 screen area remains the same, which means that the larger frame on the original model will be reduced a bit, which is the narrow-frame design that is so popular today. Similar to the Surface Pro 3 to Surface Pro 4, the screen zooms in from 12 inches to 12.3 inches. The upgraded Surface Go 2 is comparable to the iPad Pro in terms of face value.
The interface section doesn’t change much, and there’s still a USB Type-C connector, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and charging via Surface Connector.
The Surface Go 2 core configuration includes the LTE version and the WiFi version, where the LTE version features an Intel Core m3-8100Y processor with 8GB of memory and 128GB of storage. The WiFi version features an Intel Pentium 4425Y processor with 4GB of memory and 64GB of storage, all pre-installed with Windows 10.
It’s worth noting that The Surface Go 2 also supports WiFi 6, which is consistent with Surface Laptop 3 or Surface Pro 7. Thanks to Intel’s WiFi 6 module chip, Microsoft’s Surface Go 2 will have longer battery life and a more stable network connection.
Microsoft officials say the Surface Go 2 uses a dual microphone solution, Studio Mics, to improve voice clarity and reduce background noise for team meetings or video chats, and uses a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. This time, Microsoft added a new “camera” app to the Surface Go 2’s rear camera that can be used to scan documents and whiteboards.
Surface Go 2 can be selected with a bright platinum, elegant black, Bobby red and ice crystal blue keyboard cover, because the body size has not changed, Surface Go 2 can be used with the previous generation of product keyboard cover. The consumer version of Surface Go 2 starts at $2,988.
