Surface Go 3 retail listing confirms specs of Microsoft's upcoming tablet

The Surface Go 3 will get a spec bump over its predecessor, but don’t expect major design changes.

What you need to know

  • Specs of the Surface Go 3 momentarily leaked on a retailer’s website.
  • The listing included the specs of Microsoft’s upcoming tablet.
  • Based on the listing, the Surface Go 3 will have options for Intel Pentium 6500Y or Core i3-10100Y processors.

Microsoft’s Surface Go 3 briefly appeared on the Thai retailer Shopee’s website. The folks at WinFuture were able to check out the specs of the device before the listing was taken down. The information from the retail listing lines up with what we’ve previously reported as well as suspected Geekbench results.

The main takeaway from the listing is that the Surface Go 3 should ship with either Intel Pentium Gold 6500Y or Intel Core i3-10100Y processors. The Pentium Gold 6500Y is a significant step up from the Pentium Gold 4425Y in the Surface Go 2. Both chips that will ship with the Surface Go 3 are Amber Lake Y processors, which aren’t as powerful as 11th Gen Tiger Lake chips.

Assuming the listing is accurate, the external design of the Surface Go 3 appears to be largely unchanged compared to the Surface Go 2. The Surface Go 3 still lacks PCIe, which some had hoped for.

According to the retail listing and previous reports and leaks, the Surface Go 3 should have the following specs:

Category Surface Go 3
Operating System Windows 11 Home S Mode

10.5 inches, 3:2 aspect ratio

1920×1280 (220 ppi) resolution

1500:1 contrast ratio


Intel Pentium Gold 6500Y

Intel Core i3-10100Y








Expandable Storage microSD
Surface Pen 4,096 levels of pressure, tilt support

5MP front-facing with Windows Hello

8MP rear auto-focus

Security Windows Hello face sign-in

Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax compatible, Bluetooth Wireless 5.0

LTE Advanced Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 LTE Modem

Ports 1x USB-C, 1x Surface Connect, microSDXC card reader, 3.5mm headphone jack
Audio 2W stereo speakers with Dolby Audio Premium
Battery Up to 10 hours
Dimensions 9.65 inches x 6.9 inches x 0.33 inches (245mm x 175mm x 8.3mm)

We suspect that the Surface Go 3 will start at $399. Microsoft is expected to announce the Surface Go 3 at its Surface hardware event on September 22, 2021.
