Surface Go 3, Surface Pro X And Windows 11
Kyriacou called the new Surface Go 3 (pictured) the fastest and most capable Surface Go device yet, 60 percent faster than Go 2 and with an Intel Core i3 processor.
It has optional LTE Advanced, all-day battery, a digital pen and touch. It is 1.2 pounds with 1080p cameras, according to Microsoft. LTE models will release “in the coming months.” The device has Dolby audio and a 10.5-inch display tuned for diagonal viewing.
David Washington, Microsoft director of program management for Surface devices, demonstrated how Surface Go 2 works with Windows 11--signing in with Windows Hello, adapting to a preferred user layout with its snap feature, allowing users to switch between different applications and allowing Teams calls with one touch.
Although Surface Pro X -- which Microsoft has touted as an overhauled version of the popular 2-in-1 Surface Pro tablet series -- didn’t get much attention during the Surface event, Microsoft did announce that the Surface Pro X has Windows 11 and 64-bit emulation built in and apps including Teams, Office, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom optimized for ARM.
Microsoft will also release a Wi-Fi only model with all-day battery life, according to the company.
