When Microsoft introduced Surface Go tablets earlier this year, it offered two options. Last week a third option was added without too much publicity. Whether this version of the device is also available in the Netherlands remains to be seen.

At launch, the Surface Go tablet was available in two variants. It was a variant with four gigabytes of working memory and 64GB of eMMC storage capacity, for 499 euros. There was also a version with 8GB of working memory and 128GB of SSD storage, for 599 euros. Last week, Neowin reports, a new option was quietly added.

The Surface Go

Surface Go comes standard with a 10-inch screen with a resolution of 1,800 x 1,200 pixels. The screen ratio is 3:2 and the contrast ratio is 1500:1. According to Microsoft, the touch screen can last at least nine hours on a fully charged battery. It also runs on an Intel Penium Gold 4415Y processor.

The device also has two cameras, one with a 5-megapixel sensor and one with an 8-megapixel sensor on the back. The front camera lens is also compatible with Windows Hello, which allows people with facial recognition to log in.

New variant

From now on a version with 4GB of working memory and 128GB of SSD storage is also available. This model costs $499. Previously, this variant of Surface Pro was available within the Costco chain of stores and was delivered with a plastic Type Cover for 549 dollars.

The new version is available with Windows 10 Home is S Mode. By the way, the Go is the only Surface device that is available and comes with Windows 10 in S Mode by default. Currently, the new Surface Go is only available in the United States. Whether and when this will come to the Netherlands is not certain.
