Online tipsters are always handy with information to help and today is no different. Microsoft Surface Pro 8 2-in-1 laptop is expected to arrive later this year. Today, a tipster has shared what looks to be a 3D render imagined from the patents filed by Microsoft.
Microsoft Surface Pro 8 2-in-one will be the next Surface update from the company featuring all the goodness of the series, top of the line specs, pencil support, best in class display etc. The concept shared by a tipster today is imagined from the patents filed by the company and gives us an early look at what could the new model look like.
Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Specs
The new Surface 8 Pro will feature 10the gen Intel Core processors and for memory there will be 4/8/16GB configurations available. Could Microsoft go with the newly announced Lakefield processors? It could be me and my wild theory but who knows. Microsoft for all we know could ditch Intel altogether and go with AMD.
Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Design
The concept model seen here seems to give the Surface 8 Pro a design overhaul. We see a thin keyboard profile, maybe a bit too thin, but that’s welcome here and a thicker display module. The display seems to retain the square of the previous Surface models. The current Surface Pro 7 has a 12.3-inch display with 2736 x 1824 pixel resolution we are expecting that the upcoming update retains the same features. There are thick bezels around the display. We can also see three Type-C ports and what looks like a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
