Over the years, Surface Pro has been a huge success for Microsoft in the PC computing market, to the point that many other leading machine manufacturers have tried to mimic their initiatives and implement programs like Surface.
When launched around 2013, Original Surface Pro marked the changed realm of what dynamic mobile 2-in-1 solutions can offer, marking the step that mobile device information should really take.
In recent generations, little has changed: each successive update has always improved some features and made it more powerful and talkative, and it was only in 2019 that Microsoft kept the USB-C port (unless it was compatible with Thunderbolt 3).
After this, we wonder if 2020 will be the year of the biggest changes in the design and appearance of the Surface Pro? Will the eighth-generation Surface Pro end the previous titles? Next, we tell you all the rumors.
Surface Pro 8: Rumors of certain books
Here is what we know of its possible configuration based on current rumors:
- 11th Intel Core generation investigators
- Cover or Type Cover for wireless charging and solar power
- The Speaker is included in what is called to kick
- Release Date: October 2020
When will the Surface Pro 8 go on sale?
Microsoft has never revealed anything about it, but reviewing the history of previous releases, a reasonable bet would mean that the company will officially launch in the event
It would be compatible with the Surface Pro 8, the new Surface Laptop, as well as the modified models and final models of the Surface Neo and Surface Duo. Microsoft has already unveiled both of these products in October 2019 and is the most important Surface version we know.
Because they are unique, the company said it wanted to explore the ways in which it was made and to get people acquainted with the new ideas and techniques offered by each. Their success also depends on the support these products receive by developers.
How much does the Surface Pro 8 cost?
You should not forget that when you buy a Surface Pro, you get the main equipment but not all of its accessories. There is a complete ecosystem that starts with a keyboard such as a cover, a Surface digital pen (both can be selected), dials and many more.
Therefore, the current values of Surface Pro 7 They start at € 899 in the case of the most basic model, reaching € 2,249 if you prefer the more expensive model with 16 GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage.
What are the rumors about the Surface Pro 8?
Like the previous models, Microsoft will use the Intel Core processors family that is very closely associated with this launch, so it all shows that it has Intel Core for 11 generations inside.
As we saw with the Surface Pro X, there will be a Surface Pro 8 based on the ARM processor, but Microsoft can introduce the second generation of the Pro X: SQ1 processor was its invention, a result of Qualcomm's collaboration.
It's too early to find out the details of the actual sheets or photos of what the product can ferment, but a few technical securities have been found on Surface Pro 8. We tell you.
First is a nail box attached to the chassis itself, which appears to include speakers mounted on the support foot, or Type Cover, and which uses a closed area between the support foot and the tablet to make room & # 39; & # 39 ;.
Basically, when you open the support foot, a speaker box is built that gives it a higher sound without making the tool bigger, as long as you rest it on a flat surface.
It's still unclear how this case would work: the patent includes multiple options with one or more speakers, and it also has details of the accordion-style wrap configuration when the support foot is closed.
As a flow chart, sensors as well software They will see that the cabinet is open or closed and will adjust the sound accordingly.
Cover with solar panels
If you think the rumors of the speakers sound like science fiction, don't miss the one that has since taken shape. A filtered patent on the network and received by WindowsLatest showing the solar panels behind the support foot.
Solar chargers are nothing new, but the real problem is that most users can work outdoors with their Surface Pro, so exposing them to direct sunlight is difficult.
Current solar chargers are useless to most people, with the less expensive USB power banks, and faster charging systems used on the smartphone, we can't imagine that many people want to buy their Surface Pro solar cover that makes the product more expensive.
It's good that the Surface Pro 7 has a USB-C port, but it uses USB 3.1 Gen 2. That gives about 10 Gb / s, which is quite fast. But with the Thunderbolt 3 speed quarter some models already have it.
So, we would like to see the news on the new generation of the Surface Pro 8, but we also can't expect any major changes to something that's been working very well over the years.
The average Windows community likes the current form factor, because it is able to provide the perfect balance between screen size and usability in different ways of using it.
Also Surface Pro X, Surface Duo and Next Neo they are already paying attention to other smaller screen sizes or dual screen. We are eager to find out what the final price of the two mentioned will be, but as more rumors arise about the emergence of the Surface Pro 8, we will make sure to include it in the segment.
