Surface Go 2 official render

After a long string of rumours and speculation, Microsoft has
finally announced the Surface Go 2 as a lower-cost alternative
to the familiar iPads of years past. Starting at $399, this new
10.5-inch Windows tablet draws influence from the original
product and it comes with smaller bezels.

The Surface Go 2 offers a premium appearance for the modestly
priced package and it’s compatible with a lot of the same kinds
of accessories as the other Surface products.

Surface Go 2 comes with low-wattage “Amber Lake” Intel Pentium
Gold 4425Y, as opposed to the Pentium Gold 4415Y used in the
Surface Go. There’s also an option for a Core m3-8100Y now,
which is a next step up from the Pentium Gold and offers better
performance if you’re willing to pay extra for it.

Microsoft’s Surface Go 2 now has a 10.5-inch display with a
1920×1280 resolution and 220ppi pixel density, compared to
217ppi on the original product. The bezels are a little bit
smaller but the appearance of the affordable tablet largely
remains unchanged.

So, how much will the Surface Go 2 cost? It depends on the
processor. Surface Go 2 with Intel Pentium CPU starts at $399
and that does not include the keyboard, but the device supports
thousands of keyboards, mice, USB devices and accessories from
other manufacturers.

The Core m3 model of the Surface Go 2 starts at $629.99 with
Windows 10 Home in S Mode and you need to pay another $100 more
for the LTE support.

You can pre-order the Surface Go 2 from the Microsoft Store.
