The Surface Laptop Go 2 is expected to be released by Microsoft, and if rumours are to be believed, it might come as soon as this month. And, before this is confirmed, courtesy of an early Korean e-commerce site listing, we got a glimpse at the laptop’s spec sheet. Take a peek around.
Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 Specifications Leaked
According to the Korean listing (via The Verge), the Surface Laptop Go 2 will be similar to its predecessor. So, expect a light and sleek laptop with premium colour options like Sage, Platinum, Ice Blue, and Sandstone. It’ll sport the same 12.4-inch PixelSense touch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, according to reports.
The processor, which is likely to be upgraded to the 11th-generation Intel CPU, may change (an i5-1135G7). The original Surface Laptop Go, as you may recall, has an Intel i5 processor from the 10th generation. Up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage are expected to be included in the laptop. However, there’s no information on the RAM+Storage configuration of the base model. The 2020 model has 4GB+64GB of RAM and 8GB+256GB of RAM.
Another notable change is that the Surface Laptop Go will ship with Windows 11 pre-installed. The I/O portion, on the other hand, is likely to remain the same. A USB Type-A, USB Type-C, a 3.5mm audio connector, and a charging port are all expected to be included in the forthcoming Microsoft laptop.
There will also be a fingerprint scanner incorporated in the power button, as well as a “improved” HD web camera. However, the purported spec list also says that a backlit keyboard may not be supported. There are currently no details on the connectivity options, audio, or some of the additions. Furthermore, we have no idea how much the Surface Laptop Go 2 will cost. The goal, however, should be to keep the price as low as possible.
It’s preferable to wait for more information on the aforementioned aspects, as well as the launch date.
