According to rumors, Microsoft will launch Microsoft Surface Pro 8 sometime this year. Of course, for users, Microsoft’s device updates are nothing more than hardware upgrades and there is not much new idea.
As a new version, it is natural to keep up with the trend in terms of hardware. For example, it is rumored that Microsoft is preparing to provide WiFi 6-generation support and LTE cellular network connection for this device to help users get a better experience in a network connection.
According to documents submitted by Microsoft to the FCC, Surface Pro 8 will use the LTE-A Cat 12 M.2 module provided by Quectel Wireless, which is used to provide users with LTE cellular network connections. Users can directly manage network connections through the Windows 10 settings application.
In addition to the cellular network connection, Surface Pro 8 will also use the Intel AX201 adapter provided by Intel. The adapter supports WiFi 6th generation so it can use the latest WiFi standard, 802.11ax, and Bluetooth 5 connection. Compared with the previous generation product, this makes Surface Pro 8 better in the wireless network connection.
In other respects, according to information previously leaked, the device will support up to 32GB of memory and 1TB of solid-state hard drives, using Intel’s 11th-generation Tiger Lake and Xe graphics adapters. It is rumored that the device will also support the Intel Core i3 version, 128GB solid-state disk, and 8GB memory version.
In addition, Microsoft is also preparing to launch Surface Laptop 4 and Surface Duo 2 this year.
