Microsoft is hosting a Surface event on September 22 and is expected to introduce a slew of new hardware offerings. One of the devices expected to launch on the day is the Microsoft Surface Go 3, the successor to the Surface Go 2. It is expected to feature the same design as its predecessor but will see an upgrade in specs. More specifically, the Microsoft Surface Go 3 tablet will continue to use Intel chips and not switch to ARM.
The German publication WinFuture.de reports that the Microsoft Surface Go 3 could come in two different models, but both will use Intel chips. One model may be powered by the Intel Pentium Golf 6500Y processor paired with 4GB of RAM and another model will likely be powered by an Intel Core i3-10100Y processor paired with 8GB of RAM. The publication reports that this Microsoft Surface Go 3 information comes from the entry of the tablet in the Geekbench database.
The Surface Go 3 will reportedly sport the same 10.5-inch full-HD display as its predecessor, and the chassis is expected to be made from magnesium alloy. The tablet also comes with a folding kickstand. The Microsoft event will be held virtually at 11 a.m. ET (8.30 p.m. IST) on September 22. It is important to note that Microsoft has not yet disclosed the list of devices it plans to unveil at the upcoming event.
The rumor mill has suggested that the Surface Duo 2 smartphone will likely be one of the other launches. Recent reports suggest that the Surface Duo 2 is expected to feature the same dual-display design introduced by its predecessor, with dual OLED displays and a 360-degree hinge mechanism. The device may come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, 5G support and Android 11. It is expected to come with a price tag of $1,399 (approximately Rs. 1,02,200). The company may also bring a successor to last year’s Surface Book 3 laptop and a redesigned Surface Pro.
