Microsoft to Launch Surface Book 3, Surface Go 2 in the Spring

Posted on February 14, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft Surface with 32 Comments

Brad has confirmed that Microsoft will launch Surface Book 3 and Surface Go 2 at an event sometime in the next few months.

Here’s what we know so far.

Surface Book 3 will utilize the same form factor as its predecessor, but it will be powered by more modern internals, including 10th-generation Intel Core processors and NVDIA GTX 16xx-series graphics.

Surface Go 2, meanwhile, is not making the transition to ARM as some have theorized. Instead, it will continue to be offered with a lackluster Intel Pentium Gold processor. The good news? Microsoft will make a Core M3 processor available as an option.

Up in the air, curiously, are the Surface Earbuds, which Microsoft announced in October and originally planned to ship by the end of 2019. That product has been delayed, and it’s not clear if we’ll see it launched at the Spring event. That said, Microsoft does have a few new Surface peripherals to announce soon too.

As for the timing, it’s unclear, but I’m guessing that April would be the earliest possible time. Previous Surface Spring events have occurred in May, and the original Surface Go launched in mid-2018.
