Microsoft Surface GO Launches in India, Pricing Starts at Rs 37999

Microsoft Surface Go Flipkart teaser hints at Microsoft Surface Go India launch: Quick facts

While it's good that Microsoft is considering India as an important market for Surface devices, the prices are way too high. As for India, apart from the Apple iPad, there aren't many options available in the tablets segment.

Sadly, the teaser doesn't mention a tentative launch date or the price bracket at which Microsoft will unveil the Surface Go. The Surface Go is the company's smallest Surface device and it can be pre-ordered via Flipkart starting December 15 from 12:01 pm.

The device features Microsoft's signature kickstand with an unlimited position setting and the proprietary Surface Connector port for charging and attaching it to a desktop dock. It features a magnesium chassis build that certainly looks impressive. It has a 10-inch "PixelSense" display with a resolution of 1800×1200 pixels and a 3:2 aspect ratio. The Surface Go is a tablet that runs on a full version of Windows 10 and comes with a bunch of optional accessories to enhance productivity.

The processor is a dual-core Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y, which runs fanless at 1.6GHz with a 6W TDP and is based on the Kaby Lake architecture. However, there's no speculating as the Surface Go starts at $399 for its 4GB+64GB variant and you'll have to shell out $549 for its 8GB+128GB variant. The Surface Go comes with TPM 2.0 security chip and also supports Windows Hello Face Recognition for authentication. You get a USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and the same Surface Connect power and accessory port that we've seen on previous Surface Pro and Surface Laptop models. We have now discovered a hidden webpage on Flipkart that confirms the device will go on pre-order today. While there's an LTE variant as well, the Surface Go would be coming in Wi-Fi variant to India. For the optics, there's an 8-megapixel camera at the rear and a 5-megapixel camera for the front.
