Surface Go offers a 10” display with 3:2 aspect ratio. Under the hood is a 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y with 4 GB and 8 GB RAM options. The device offers a fanless design and a nine-hour battery life. Microsoft has also added USB Type-C for connectivity. Surface Go comes with 64GB eMMC and 128GB or 256GB SSD storage options. Microsoft has also added SD Card support for expansion which supports cards up to 1 TB. Other specs include a 5MP front-facing camera with Windows Hello and an 8MP rear auto-focus camera. Surface Go will support Dolby Audio Premium as well as the Surface Pen. Microsoft hasn’t commented on the Surface Dial support though.
There is no word on the pricing of the device but considering the specs, Microsoft will need to opt for aggressive pricing in India if they want to sell the device. The device is currently priced at $399 which roughly translates to 28,000 INR.
