Configuration details for Microsoft Surface Pro 7 leak out
WinFuture has been sharing some information about a new tablet we can expect to see from Microsoft in the not too distant future: The Microsoft Surface Pro 7. There have been some reported leaks about the device in the past, and there is fair expectation that the Redmond-based company will reveal full details at a Surface event in early October.
The five SKUs mentioned by WinFuture are as follows:
|Microsoft Surface Pro 7||Intel Core i3||4 GB RAM||128 GB SSD|
|Microsoft Surface Pro 7||Intel Core i5||8 GB RAM||128 GB SSD|
|Microsoft Surface Pro 7||Intel Core i5||8 GB RAM||256 GB 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|
The leak allegedly comes from traders who have stated that these will be the configurations initially available in European markets, including Germany. Interestingly, there is quite some difference with the previous generation in terms of configuration options. The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 has more storage choices, as it’s possible to get up to a 1 TB SSD; however, the Surface Pro 7 has more RAM options with the additional 4 GB SKU. It’s likely a 1 TB storage choice will eventually be added to the configurator for the Surface Pro 7, though.
The latest Surface Pro generation also seemingly offers more in regard to processor options with the inclusion of an i3 processor, while the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 currently comes with either an i5-8250U or i7-8650U (business customers can select between an i5-8350U option or the i7-8650U). WinFuture speculates that Microsoft might plump for the Comet Lake i3-10110Y chip for the entry-level Surface Pro 7 device.
