In June 2022, we might see the Surface Laptop Go 2, the sequel
Microsoft’s first affordable Surface Laptop Go lineup. The
next-generation Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 launch is
imminent, if a recently-published document from a Korean
retailer, is anything to go by.
The retailer’s listing was published last week and it

it has confirmed that Microsoft wants to use Intel’s
11th-generation processor in the Surface Laptop Go 2. The
11th-gen processor would be i5-1135G7 which promises better
performance as compared to the 10th-gen CPU in Laptop Go.

Surface Laptop Go 2 uses a premium aluminium finish around the
keyboard deck and display.

Korean listing. It still comes with a 12.4-inch display and you
can expect the same kind of build quality, which means
Microsoft won’t be using plastic laptop chassis here. You can
use the laptop without worrying about it breaking.
It also comes with USB-C, USB-A, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
There’s a fingerprint sensor that can be accessed via the power
The release date of the device is not available, but the
retailer claims pre-orders will begin on June 2nd.

variant. Of course, the price would increase if you choose the
upper-end model. The entry-level model will be shipping with
the same RAM and storage configuration i.e 4GB RAM and 64GB of
