Putting in powerful features in a small device, Microsoft has officially unveiled the Surface Go which they claim to be their “smallest, lightest, and most affordable Surface yet.”
Among its key specs and features include a 10-inch FHD PixelSense display in 3:2 resolution, Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y, and storage configurations of 4GB/8GB RAM combined with either a 64GB/128GB/256GB onboard storage. The said device will run on a 27 watt-hour juice. In term of optics, the Microsoft Surface Go will have an 8-megapixel shooter on the rear and a 5-megapixel front camera.
Since it will come in a very compact body with its dimensions of 9.6 x 6.9 x 0.33 inches, and 0.49 kg weight, the Microsoft Surface Go will have a limited selection of ports that include one USB Type-C port, one headphone port, a microSD card reader, and Surface Connect, which will be useful for charging and docking. The Microsoft Surface Go also has its Stylus pen.
