For users who require connectivity via video calls, the Surface Go features a 5-megapixel HD camera and rear autofocus 8-megapixel HD camera, along with dual microphones.
The Microsoft Surface family of devices has registered high double-digit growth in the Indian market this year and the Surface Go is set to add heavily to that next year, according to Priyadarshi Mohapatra, Country General Manager, Consumer & Devices, Microsoft India.
“In Surface Go, you have latest Windows 10 and a suite of Microsoft apps, for a pure laptop experience on the go. No other tablet or a 2-in-1 can make your work life easier than this device,” Mohapatra told IANS at the time of the launch.
