SINGAPORE, 18 JUNE 2020 – Microsoft today announced that the Surface Go 2, which was launched last month as part of the new Surface line-up, is now available in Singapore via commercial authorized resellers, authorized retailers and via the Microsoft Online Store at a starting price of S$648.
The Surface Go 2 LTE will be available via exclusive telco partner Singtel, on its online shop and flagship Comcentre store. Customers can purchase the Surface Go 2 LTE on Singtel’s Combo and XO plans.
Designed to provide users versatility and seamless productivity, Microsoft’s new Surface line-up will empower users to work, learn, connect and play from anywhere.
“As the way we work and learn continues to evolve, the need for devices that keep us productive and connected has never been greater. The new Surface line-up offers incredible versatility, greater performance, and productivity-focused capabilities to help users do what they need to accomplish their goals. We have seen a strong, positive response during the pre-order period and we are pleased to share that the new Surface devices are now available in Singapore,” said Shyamol Bansal, Business Group Lead for Surface & Mixed Reality, Microsoft Singapore.
The all-new Surface Go 2 retains the same lightweight, compact design as the original, but now features a larger 10.5” PixelSense display, improved battery life and a model that is up to 64% faster in performance than before with new Intel® 8th Generation Core™ M options. Surface Go 2 comes equipped with built-in WiFi, plus optional LTE Advanced, providing hassle-free, secured connectivity anywhere.
The device also includes Studio Mics, a dual microphone solution to increase voice clarity and reduce background noise for Teams meetings; and a 5MP front-facing camera that delivers sharp video even in low light. The rear-facing camera also has a new Camera application that allows users to easily scan documents and whiteboards – whether it is sharing notes from a meeting or turning in homework.
Paired with Surface Pen, Surface Go 2 allows distance learners and remote workers to stay digital, while unlocking the power of natural ink for things like drawing diagrams, marking up documents or working through math equations. Users can also look forward to personalizing their Surface Go with Type Covers and accessories in a variety of colors, including Platinum, Black, Poppy Red, and Ice Blue.
