The next-generation tablet from the Redmond-based tech giant will reportedly sport a 10.5-inch display with full HD resolution. In terms of design, the insider claimed the device will feature the same design as its predecessor with a fold-out stand and a housing made of magnesium alloy.

The tablet houses Intel's 10th generation Amber Lake U CPU. The base version of the device features a PentiumGold 6500 Y Chip with 4 GB RAM.

It appears the entry-level model performs and looks a lot like the Surface Go 2. The CPU offers a decent performance improvement over the Core m3-8100Y. The Core i3-10100Y will reportedly offer a decent improvement.

The more pricey model of the Surface Go 3 uses Intel Core i3-10100Y System on Chip (SoC) and has a base clock speed of 1.3 GHz. It has the power to boost up to 3.9 GHz based on the task at hand. This model comes with 8 GB RAM.

Also, it is a dual-core processor that comes with a UHD Graphics 625 GPU. Unfortunately, we don't know the price of the base and the higher-tier models of the upcoming tablet.
