Microsoft is gearing up to release the Surface Pro 7 in October but because apparently no one in the world likes to wait for official announcements, the specs have allegedly leaked. Five models of the Surface Pro 7 are likely to be on the way and we might even get that dual screen everyone's been hamming on about.
This week Microsoft announced its latest Surface event. But while an updated laptop is expected every year, there may be a major difference this time around. Two. Screens.
The Surface Pro 7 is likely to be fitted out with 10th-generation Intel CPUs and will come with five models, according to a leak sighted by German tech site, WinFuture.
The entry-level option will come with a Intel Core i3, 4GB RAM and a 128GB SSD but two i5 models will come with 8GB RAM and either 128GB or 256GB SSD. If you need more RAM juice, the two i7 models come with 16GB of it along with a choice between a 256GB or 512GB SSD.
- 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
WinFuture is expecting the models will come in the standard grey-silver colour as well as a black finish. These leaks are for the European models, specifically, but those have historically had the same hardware as the Australian versions, apart from a difference in charging plugs.
It's expected the Surface Pro 7 will go on sale during the fortnight following the October 2 announcement, similar to previous years, so we'll have a better idea of Australian pricing within the month.
Microsoft will confirm whether the leaks are accurate during its special event on October 2 in New York City. You can stream it live in Australia from Microsoft's event page at midnight Thursday, October 3 for east coast cities, 11.30pm Wednesday, October 2 for Adelaide, and 10pm Wednesday, October 2 for Perth.
Microsoft's Surface event was held earlier today, and even though it wasn't streamed, news about its new devices started to drop quickly. One of them was them widely-rumoured Surface Pro 6. While most reports surmised that it would be a simple refresh of the previous gen, it was assumed that one of the upgrades would be USB-C. We were all wrong.
