Microsoft is set to release a new Surface Pro 8 model next week, and a leak claims to have disclosed all we need to know. Shadow Leak has shared a picture of the Surface Pro 8 from what looks to be a retail listing on Twitter. The Surface Pro 8 will reportedly come with a new 13-inch 120Hz display with low bezels and two Thunderbolt connections, according to the account.
Last week, The Verge claimed that the Surface Pro 8 will come with USB-C and Thunderbolt connectors instead of USB-A. Microsoft has also been testing 120Hz panels for the Surface Pro range, as we previously reported. According to individuals acquainted with Microsoft’s plans, the leaked picture and specs match what we’ve heard.
Microsoft is going to detachable SSDs on the Surface Pro 8, according to the source. This will make it easier for companies to switch hard drives on the Surface Laptop 4, Surface Pro X, and the business-only Surface Pro 7 plus.
The Surface Pro 8, a Surface Go 3, a freshly designed Surface Book 4, an upgraded Surface Pro X, and the successor to the Android-powered Surface Duo are all expected to be announced during Microsoft’s Surface hardware event on September 22nd. On September 22nd, from 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT, The Verge will have all the Surface news.
