The Microsoft Surface Go 2 will come with a larger display, a more powerful processor, and LTE support.
According to official reports, the smallest tablet member of the Surface family will experience the largest hardware upgrade. The most important change in the Surface Go 2 is its 10.5-inch display, which is slightly larger than the previous generation’s 10-inch display. An important point is to optimize the screen size, which makes it possible to increase the size. In other words, the overall size of the tablet hasn’t changed, and the screen size has increased with decreasing margins and a smarter design. Of course, the edges of the Microsoft Surface Go 2 tablet aren’t as narrow as the edges of the Surface Pro X, but compared to the previous version, the Surface Go has been significantly reduced.
The larger display, more resolution, which makes the resolution of this tablet 1920 by 1080, and the density of 220 pixels per inch, also adds to the appeal of the image. The aspect ratio is still 3: 2 in Surface products. In terms of internal technical specifications, Microsoft offers a variety of options, and users can purchase the model they need according to their needs. The base model of the Surface Go 2 tablet will still have an Intel Pentium Gold processor and will be priced at $ 399.

It is based on the newer Amber Lake architecture. The tablet comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal SSD storage. As before, the Type Covers keyboard is sold separately for the Surface Go for a base price of $ 99.
