In another repeat of the Surface Go, Microsoft will be releasing distinct LTE and Wi-Fi versions of the Surface Go 2. Expected to arrive before the end of May, the Surface Go 2 will be a mostly incremental upgrade over the device that Microsoft released 20 months ago.

Microsoft will be releasing LTE and Wi-Fi versions of the Surface Go 2. Confirmed by the FCC and brought to our attention by Windows Latest  Microsoft may release up to four SKUs if it repeats its decision to sell Commercial and Consumer variants as it did with the Surface Go.

Carrying the FCC ID C3K1926, the device is a Wi-Fi-only version of the EV2. This codename appeared in January on 3DMark as two Core m3-8100Y powered devices, one with LTE and one without. The Core m3-8100Y is said to be one of the processors that Microsoft will offer with the Surface Go 2, meaning that the C3K1926 will likely to be assigned the SKU "Surface_Go_2_1926". 

As we previously reported, Microsoft has filed a C3K1927 with the FCC too. Another EV2 according to documents published by the FCC, test reports confirm that this an LTE variant. Following Microsoft's naming schemes, this device should be assigned the SKU "Surface_Go_2_1927".

The Surface Go 2 is rumoured to be featuring a 10.5-inch display, a slight increase over its predecessor. However, Microsoft has apparently re-used the chassis for the new Go, making it compatible with existing accessories. Expected to be launched at a spring Surface hardware event, the Surface Go 2 may be launched alongside refreshed Surface Book.
