What you need to know
- A new FCC filing spotted this week could be for the Surface Go 2.
- The filing references the same codename seen in Geekbench scores said to be the Surface Go 2.
- This follows the recent appearance of possible Surface Go 2 retailer listings.
A new FCC filing spotted by Windows Latest could be evidence that the Surface Go 2 is almost here. The filing, which was published this week, references the same "EV2" codename that appeared on Geekbench scores that were said to be for the Surface Go 2. It also sports the model number 1927.
There's no explicit reference to the Surface Go 2 name, but we're largely expecting the follow-up to the original Surface Go to debut sometime this spring. We're expecting the smallest member of the Surface lineup to potentially launch alongside a Surface Book 3 as well.
The FCC filing comes as retailer listings for what is presumed to be the Surface Go 2 and Surface Book 3 were spotted at European retailers over the weekend. That those listings and this filing appeared around the same time hint that we could be in for a launch relatively soon. However, with current world events, it's hard to say for certain.
As for what we're expecting with the Surface Go 2, recent reports have suggested that it will come with an Intel Pentium Gold processor. There may also be an Intel Core M option available. Both processors seem reasonable given the Surface Go's position at the entry level of Microsoft's lineup. There's currently no expectation that Microsoft will launch a Snapdragon variant with Windows 10 on ARM.
