Microsoft Surface Pro 8
A recently launched Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Plus was launched in January this year, an addition to the 7 Series that arrived last year. And now it’s time to take on a new generation. This will be Microsoft’s next September 22 ceremony (Wednesday), which will focus on new Surface devices.
Among them is the Surface Pro 8, which will feature a 13-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate and narrow bezels. The tablet will be powered by an Intel 11th generation Core processor with replacement SSD drives (M.2). For connectivity, laptops will have double-sided bolt ports.
The tablet will run Windows 11 out of the box, though the new OS isn’t expected until October 5, therefore the new tablet could also be on pre-order for 2-3 weeks. Or it will be coming to an existing Windows 10 device rollout for updates.
Microsoft Surface Pro 8 will start at $ 800 / € 680 / ₹ 60,000 / ¥ 5,170, according to author Sam, who shared the photo above. This is the default configuration, though we do not know if it is.
Sam also shared these renderings of Microsoft Surface Book 4 by yanRyan_C_Smalley. The ModelWest model, Surface Book 3, as well as Surface Go 2, were announced in May last year after the Surface Tablets were formalized in 2020, so we’re missing out on a new Surface Book laptop due to this. A new ARM-powered, Windows-powered Surface Pro X also.
As for a new go model, the Surface Book Go 3 was rolled out by the benchmark a few weeks. The basic model will use the Pentium Gold 6500Y processor with 4 GB of RAM, with expensive options ranging from the Core i3-10100Y.
Last year’s ceremony also brought a continuation of Microsoft’s noise-canceling Surface headphones, so September 22 may also come with new accessories. And there is a good chance it will not be a Surface Surge event.
Microsoft Surface Duo 2 is powered by Geekbench with Snapdragon 888 and 8 GB RAM. We’ve also seen some hidden images, which seems to be why Microsoft hasn’t given up on their dual-screen Android phones.
