The successor to Microsoft’s low-cost Surface Laptop Go seems to have leaked early, as it’s been spotted on the website of a Korean retailer ahead of an official announcement. If the store listing now seems to have disappeared, The Verge has the rundown of what to expect.
Overall, the design of the Surface Laptop Go 2 seems unchanged with a 12.4-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, as well as an identical selection of ports (one USB-C, one USB-A, Surface Connect, and headphone jack). The keyboard is apparently still not backlit, and Microsoft will also keep offering a fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button on some Surface Laptop Go 2 models.

Under the hood, the Surface Laptop Go 2 will feature an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 CPU, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and a battery providing up to 13.5 hours of use. The listing also mentioned an “improved HD camera performance” (the original Surface Laptop Go shipped with a 720p camera).
According to the store listing, pre-orders will open on Thursday, June 2, so it shouldn’t be long before Microsoft officially announces the new laptop. The original Surface Laptop Go had a starting price of $549.99, but WinFuture reported last week that its successor could start at $650 instead.
