Surface Go is the small tablet from Microsoft which, as we explained to you in our review, while being compact and rather inexpensive can still guarantee a good full Windows experience, thanks to the optimization between hardware and software. And now the second generation seems to be arriving.
Since it came out in 2018, Go has allowed the Surface line to have an entry level device capable of introducing the public to the possibilities offered by the now tested Microsoft solutions for mobility (which will soon also be enriched with a particular smartphone, the Surface Duo with dual screen). Of course, the specs were not exceptional, with only 4 GB of RAM and the Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor. Throughout 2019 there has been rumors of a successor, who however has not arrived.
2020 will probably be the right year, as the benchmarks popped up on 3DMarks suggest and which seem to concern an upgrade of the Surface GO.
There are two variants, one Wi-Fi and one LTE, both equipped with 8 GB of RAM, twice the original model, and the Intel Core m3-8100Y CPU: a good step forward. Finally storage, the benchmarks speak of 128 GB proposed through an SSD memory unit produced by Toshiba. Of course, once again it will not be powerful devices but devoted to light productivity and energy optimization, which will make autonomy a strong point. And the presence, in the final lineup, of cheaper models with Intel Pentium CPU is not to be excluded.
As for the design, it is possible that it will remain unchanged considering that we are talking about a recent product. The launch of Surface Go 2 is expected, indicatively, for this spring.
