This comes in as good news for those waiting for the business-centric Surface Pro 7+, which might not reach the hands of the commercial users. Also, since the laptop has a focus on enterprise usage, it becomes a sort of a bummer for us general peeps.
Hence, a Surface Pro 8, with a possible design and spec upgrade and most importantly, specified at a people less focussed on business use case scenarios seems like a deal.
While we lack more details on the same, the Surface Pro 8 is expected to come with lesser bezels, much like the Surface Pro X and feature a 2-in-1 design. It is expected to come with a new processor, up to 32GB of RAM, and more improvements to look at.
In addition to this, the report further suggests that the company is also planning a Surface Laptop 3 successor, possibly called the Surface Laptop 4. It is most likely to come with minor upgrades and could launch pretty soon, probably in April.
Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ to disappoint
As revealed previously, the Surface Pro 7+ might not be available for use, at least not before a few months. This kind of coincides with how Microsoft tends to unveil a product first and then make it available after quite a long time.
To recall, the Surface Pro 7+ launched last month and comes with an 11th Gen Intel Core processor, up to 32GB of RAM, and more, all stuffed in an ultra-light and versatile package.
As a reminder, the aforementioned details are just rumours and we don’t have a concrete word on it. We will have to until something official pops up. Hence, stay tuned to this space.
