Microsoft’s Surface Go 2 Might Have Just Passed FCC

Back in February, we first reported that Microsoft is planning to launch new Surface hardware this Spring. The new devices include the next-generation Surface Go, as well as the Surface Book 3.

And it seems like the launch of the new Surface products may be just around the corner. Microsoft’s Surface Go 2 may have just passed the FCC, as first spotted by the folks at Windows Latest.

The FCC listing for the device does not reveal much, nor does it confirm the existence of the Surface Go 2. Still, it reveals some important details that suggest the device could indeed be the new Surface Go 2. You see, recently leaked benchmarks for the Surface Go 2 had the same model and codename “EV2”, so it’s highly likely that this is indeed the Surface Go 2.

As we previously reported, Microsoft’s Surface Go 2 will continue to have a Pentium Gold processor from Intel, at least for the base model. The company also plans to launch a variant with an Intel Core m3 processor, but that may just be for business customers. There is no talk of an ARM variant, unfortunately.

Microsoft is expected to hold a Surface event sometime later this month or in May, so the Surface Go 2 (along with the Surface Book 3) might be official sooner than you think.
