At its annual Surface event, Microsoft has announced the new Surface Go 3. The device is the latest addition to Microsoft's budget-friendly Surface line-up.
The new Surface Go 3 takes the design inspiration from the old Surface Go 3 but has the new Intel processors. The device features a 10.5-inch 1920 x 1280 touch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio. Microsoft will allow users to configure the Surface Go 3 with either Intel Pentium Gold 6500Y or Core i3-10100Y. The Redmond giant claims that the new Surface Go 3 is 60% faster than its predecessor, making it a great Surface 2-in-1 device on a budget.
The Surface Go 3 will ship with Windows 11 and will feature Windows Hello for facial recognition. Microsoft will also be offering commercial variants of Surface Go 3 that will come with Windows 10 Pro or Windows 11 Pro. The device will also support Surface Pen which is, however, not included in the box. Furthermore, users will also have an option to buy Surface Go 3 with LTE, though it is not available at the moment. Microsoft claims that Surface Go 3 will be able to last a day on battery but did not provide an actual number during the event.
The Surface Go 3 will start at $399.99 and is up for pre-order today in selected markets. There is no word on when the device will start shipping to those who pre-order the device.
