The Surface Book 2 was launched late last year and is available in 13.5-inch and 15-inch variants, both with PixelSense displays. The device is available with up to an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM.

A page for the console briefly popped up on the company’s Indian page suggesting that the device would be priced at Rs 44,990 and would launch on January 15.
