Microsoft has been planning to bring to its next Surface Pro 8 line may not come until sometime next year when the company is expected to launch the Microsoft Surface Pro 8. The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 will launch is the direct successor to the Surface Pro 7. And until now very little is known about the device.
Our first possible glimpse of the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 does not come from a traditional leak as one of the engineering samples has just turned up on eBay revealing the design and the specifications of the device. So, it is not unusual to find prototypes of older or existing devices being sold online, but finding one for a soon to be released product is very rare.
This is what makes this listing of an alleged Surface Pro 8 strongly expected to debut next year a bit intriguing, especially with the specifications it packs. Unfortunately, the listing also brings a bit of bad news if this ends up being the final design of the upcoming Surface Pro 8.
- Surface Pro 6 (Certified Refurbished)
- Surface Pro 7 – Black, Intel Core i5, 8GB, 256GB
- Surface Pro X for Business – Platinum, Microsoft SQ® 2, 16GB, 512GB
As shown in the listing the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 looks exactly like the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 seemingly ending speculations that there would be some design upgrades coming to the successor.
Now where things get exciting is with the internal hardware. The alleged Microsoft Surface Pro 8 comes powered by Intel’s 11th generation Core i7 processor, 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB of Samsung SSD storage.
The processor is a new quad core Tiger Lake processor from Intel with a max turbo frequency of 4.70 gigahertz pair that with 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB of SSD storage and you have a very capable productivity machine and a thin and light tablet form factor.
Regarding the price of the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 based on previous models, you may assume the cost at least $800. This was also the price of the Core i3 model (4GB RAM / 128GB ROM)
