The past days have brought us fresh news about the future Microsoft Surface models. There’s a Surface event scheduled for October 2nd, where we may see tablets, laptops and desktops. We also learned more about the Surface Pro 7 versions via a leak detailed below.
The Surface Pro 7 may not hold many surprises, with obvious CPU, RAM and storage upgrades, but also the move to an USB-C port. We may even see a Surface device with an AMD chip, but nothing is certain yet. Some sources even claim there’s a Qualcomm version coming. WinFuture found the SKUs of the upcoming Surface Pro 7, with a total 7 versions prepped for Europe.
These are the ones found:
- Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i3, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD
- Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD
- Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD
- Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD
- Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD
The first one is the most unusual, a Surface Pro 7 affordable unit, with an Intel Core i3 CPU inside, plus 4 GB of RAM. It may be an aggressive push from MS to tackle the more entry level market. We’ve also heard that the Surface Pro 7 comes in black, while the cheaper versions will arrive in silver or gray. What we don’t know for sure is the version of Intel architecture available here, like Ice Lake for example.
An U Series or Y Series base model is likely. Microsoft already had a cheaper base model for the Surface Pro in 2017, with a Core M3 chip and $800 price tag. The Core i3 could take its place. October 2nd will be a big deal, since Satya Nadella has already confirmed he’ll be there.
