Microsoft launched the Surface Go globally earlier this year.

On the camera front, the Surface Go features an 8-megapixel rear HD snapper and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies and video calling. However, it seems like the Redmond giant is now gearing up to take on the newer bezel-less, Face ID-sporting iPad Pro with the impending launch of its tiny Surface Go tablet in the country.

It sports a 10-inch custom-built high-resolution PixelSense Display that supports Surface Pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, low pen parallax, low latency, and precision for accurate note taking, drawing and computer-aided design.

The Surface Go is powered by the Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y, which is a 2-core, 4-thread Kaby Lake chip. It runs on 64-bit Windows 10 Operating System, which runs on Microsoft's proprietary Windows 10 in S mode.
