What you need to know

  • The Surface Go 3 has been announced and is available for pre-order ahead of its October 5 release.
  • The Wi-Fi version of the device will start at $399, with LTE models coming in December for the U.S. and Canada and early 2022 for other markets.
  • The leaked Surface Go 3 processor specs have turned out to be accurate.

Microsoft’s latest line of Surface products has been officially revealed, following a short burst of leaks prematurely revealing items such as the Surface Duo 2‘s existence and the Surface Go 3‘s processor details. As it turns out, the latter have been confirmed by Microsoft’s formal announcement of the third installment in its Surface tablet line.

The Surface Go 3 features the Intel Pentium GOLD 6500Y and Intel Core i3-10100Y processors that were namedropped in association with the device over on Geekbench not too long ago, with 4GB or 8GB of RAM attached respectively. Storage-wise, you can go as low as 64GB of eMMC memory, while Commerical Channels will get up to 256GB SSDs. Here’s the complete spec list:
