The maiden Microsoft Surface Go Windows tablet hit the shelves about two years ago. At the time, there was so much enthusiasm among fans and the tablet didn’t disappoint. However, the tablet market is not lucrative enough to attract a direct successor. Nevertheless, after two years, Microsoft is now set to unveil the Microsoft Surface Go 2. Previous speculations claim that this device will launch in a few weeks. However, the Microsoft Surface Go 2 LTE variant recently appeared on FCC.
According to the US FCC certification information, the Surface Go 2 comes with Intel’s Wi-Fi 6 wireless network and has a longer battery life. The FCC certified “portable computing device” document confirms the existence of Surface Go 2. This is the second time that the Surface Go 2 will be appearing on an FCC file and this version supports LTE.
Microsoft Surface Go 2 will also support Bluetooth 5.0
Like we said earlier, this device will support Intel’s Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) wireless network adapter “Wi-Fi 6 AX200”. The wireless adapter supports 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands. Furthermore, Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 also supports Bluetooth 5.0.
According to reports, this Wi-Fi module has lower latency, lower battery consumption, and faster performance. It should also be noted that Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) computing devices can also support Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) routers.
As of now, there is no official release date for the Microsoft Surface Go 2. Also, the FCC file does not mention the official name for this tablet. Nevertheless, the codename for this device “EV2” has been used in the Geekbench database to refer to the Surface Go.
Well, if we follow the speculations, the Surface Go 2 will officially arrive in May. This tablet will come with a larger display as well as a smaller bezel relative to its predecessor.
