A Thai retailer ITCity leaked all the specifications of the upcoming Surface Go 3, including the corresponding Microsoft internal SKU number and some technical specifications. The fact that the retailer mentioned the SKU ID indicates that the information is true. These specifications confirm previous leaked information.
This year, Microsoft will release 3 versions of Surface Go series models, equipped with different processors, models ranging from Intel Pentium Gold 6500Y to Core i3-10100Y and with different amounts of memory and storage. They are dual-core and quad-core chips. The maximum power consumption of each chip is 7 watts, so there is no fan.
The basic model equipped with Intel Pentium Gold 6500Y dual-core SoC is expected to be divided into 4 and 8GB of memory. The cheapest version has 64GB of eMMC-based flash memory, with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. There is also a third model launched in Thailand. This product will use the Core i3-10100Y, and will only provide 8GB of memory and 128GB SSD.
Surface Go3 is equipped with a 10.5-inch PixelSense Display with a 3:2 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1920×1280 pixels. The two cameras on the front and back, with 5 million and 8 million pixels, may also remain the same for the previous generation, as are the two 2-watt speakers.
Surface Go 3 devices of different configurations can provide approximately 13 hours of battery life, and support Wi-Fi 6 across the board. The case design and size are the same. In Thailand, the starting price of this tablet is equivalent to 380 euros, while the 128GB storage version is 520 and 575 euros respectively.
