Latest Microsoft Surface Go 2 Leaks

The latest information about the Microsoft Surface Go 2 came from a recent Energy Star filing certification. As spotted by Windows Latest, the filing claimed that the upcoming tablet would house Intel’s Core m-3-8100Y CPU along with an 8 GB of RAM. The filing aligns with an earlier leak shared on Twitter about the specs of the CPU of the Surface Go 2.

Meanwhile, WinFuture revealed that the upcoming tablet from Microsoft would sport almost the same design as its older sibling. However, when it comes to display size, the Microsoft Surface Go 2 would feature a slightly bigger 10.5-inch display with the same physical dimension as its predecessor. A convenient upgrade that would allow owners of the Surface Go to use their existing tablet’s cover.
