Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 Leaks in Retail Listing

Microsoft is expected to unveil its next-generation Surface Laptop Go soon. A Korean merchant listing for the successor to the would-be Chromebook competitor seems to have gone online a bit too soon. The page appears to have been taken down since then. According to The Verge, the Surface Laptop Go 2 will be upgraded from a 10th-generation Intel Core CPU to an 11th-generation Intel processor. The i5-1135G7 processor and Intel Iris Xe graphics are included in this setup.

Battery life of up to 13.5 hours is also promised on the listing. It also claims that the system would have “enhanced HD camera performance,” despite the fact that it will feature a 720p webcam like its predecessor. The Surface Laptop Go 2 appears to have many of the same features as the first Surface Laptop Go. It boasts a 12.4-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, the same connectors (including a 3.5mm headphone jack and the proprietary Surface charging port), and a fingerprint sensor, according to the listing. Unfortunately, there’s no indication that it will include an illuminated keyboard.

Microsoft plans to allow third-party widgets in Windows 11. Today at its annual Build developer conference, announced that developers would be able to use Windows 11 widgets as companions to their win32 or PWA apps. Currently, the Windows 11 widgets system is confined to Microsoft-created native widgets, with a small variety. The weather, entertainment feeds, and news are all displayed in the dedicated widgets panel for Windows 11. Microsoft has designed widgets for its Outlook and To-Do applications, but the rest are mostly web-based.

The consumer reaction on Widgets thus far has been energising; people are appreciating the rapid access to material that is most essential to them in a way that is seamless without interrupting their flow,” says Panos Panay, head of devices and Windows. “Starting later this year, you’ll be able to use the Adaptive Cards platform to create Widgets as companion experiences for your Win32 and PWA apps on Windows 11.”
