It’s been nearly two years since the Surface Laptop Go first launched, but a follow-up may be coming soon. That’s according to Windows Central’s Zac Bowden reporting that Microsoft is gearing up to launch Surface Laptop Go 2.
Apparently named “Zuma”, Bowden’s sources say the Surface Laptop Go 2 could arrive in the first half of this year. There’s no specific date yet, but June could be a possibility since spring is when Microsoft gives Surface device specs some bumps. Pricing could also start at $549, with little change in pricing from higher-end models.
As for specs, Laptop Go 2 might come with 11th Gen Intel processors, a difference from the current model’s 10th Gen processors. The base model includes a Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage, with no fingerprint reader. A mid-range model includes 8 GB of RAM, a 128 GB SSD and a fingerprint reader. The higher end models come with the Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD. These are the same as the Surface Go.
With the design, don’t expect anything major to change. Microsoft might just launch a new “Sage” color option. No word on adding a backlit keyboard either.
The Surface Laptop Go 2 was one of the first devices expected by Microsoft this year. Refreshes for the Surface Pro with 12th Gen Intel processors, Surface Pro X with Microsoft SQ3, and Surface Laptops with AMD Rembrandt and 12th Gen Intel chips were also possibilities. Don’t count on a Surface Studio 2 follow-up either, according to an earlier report from Windows Central.
