Founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen in 1975, Microsoft is a multinational technology company that specializes in computer software, consumer electronics, personal computers and more.
In 2013, the company was able to materialize one of their most ambitious projects when they released the first generation of Surface Pro, a 2-in-1 laptop-tablet hybrid. The latest addition to the Surface Pro series was Surface Pro 6, launched in October 2018, which blew both critics and users away with its powerful battery, fast performance and 12.3-inch display.
Even though Surface Pro 6 has only been out for 7 months, users are already looking forward to the release of the next model, Surface Pro 7. Of course, speculations have already emerged in the online world and people started to express their needs and wants for the new product.
Here is all we know about Microsoft Surface Pro 7, based on information heard through the grapevine:
- Release date
Microsoft has not disclosed any information about their next model in the Surface Pro line. However, users speculate that, since the last model was released towards the end of last year, Microsoft will probably launch the next one sometime in 2020, since the company has a pattern of launching products every 1.5 years.
Surface Pro 6 debuted at a price of $899. The new model will probably fall in the same price range as its predecessor. However, Surface Pro 6’s initial price was $100 more than Surface Pro 5.
If Surface Pro 7’s price is higher, we at least expect it to come with the keyboard and pen.
Surface Pro 7 is expected to be as light and sleek as the previous model, but we might still see some changes. A Dutch blog found a patent that reveals that the Type Cover will be thinner.
We expect Intel’s 9th Gen CPUs to be integrated into Surface Pro 7. The product could also have a Core i9 configuration. We hope the new model will offer the same 2736 x 1824 display as its predecessor, which covered 136% of the sRGB spectrum and emitted 408 nits of brightness.
