Which means that you are getting the same slim design language as well as overall lighter weight, too.

The Surface Go 2 also comes with Studio Mics, a dual-microphone solution that is great when it comes to increasing microphone clarity as well as reducing background noise. Considering how video conferencing has become such an important part in the new normal routine, having this feature is great. Additionally, the Surface Go 2 also has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera that is capable of delivering sharper video in low light situations. Microsoft seems to be focusing on camera here since they have added a new camera app for the rear camera that will help people scan documents and whiteboards with ease.

The Surface Go 2 also supports the Surface Pen, which allows people from a distance to learn with ease. Whether you are making documents, drawing something diagrams, or just taking notes, the new Surface Pen should make that easy for you.
