For the camera, we have an 8MP rear camera which is able to record 1080p FULL HD videos and a 5MP front camera as well. The Surface Go 2 also promises to offer you up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge.
The Surface Go 2 comes included with the Surface Pen and you can buy the other accessories separately like Type Covers, Sleeves with colour options like Platinum, Black, Poppy Red, and Ice Blue. Also, the existing Surface Go Type Covers are compatible with the new model as well.
It will be interesting to see how Microsoft prices its new device in India, where price is the key to make an impact. In the US, the device starts as low as $399 (approx Rs. 30,300), so in India, most likely it should start at around Rs. 35k – Rs.40k onwards. We will be updating the pricing once the deal starts.
