Microsoft Surface Pro 8 release date, price, specs, design and more

With the launch of Surface Pro 8, Microsoft may revisit its flagship product, including a new design path for the product.

I'm away from Microsoft's Surface Hardware event on September 22nd. There's a lot to look forward to, including the launch of the Surface Pro 8. The biggest changes in the last few years are expected as Microsoft moves to the next generation of flagship devices.

Yes, the launch means getting two new Surface Pro models in the same year. In January, Microsoft released Surface Pro 7 Plus. This was a mid-generation upgrade, especially for business users.

Over the years, Microsoft Surface devices have followed a design path that relies on incremental updates. All Surface Pro devices are well-structured, but they also look and feel luxurious, and it's not easy to distinguish between genders.

Microsoft promises the biggest design changes since Surface Pro 3 with Surface Pro 8. The device launched in 2014 and subsequent Pro models produced similar aesthetic results. It will change tomorrow, but the specifications will be significantly revised.

When it comes to design, Surface Pro X acts as a benchmark for Pro 8. This means the rounded edges of the hardware, the new Surface pen integrated with the Surface keyboard, and the much smaller edges on all sides. Let's be clear. 

There are many ways to design a tablet. Obviously, it's still a Surface Pro device with the Windows / Microsoft logo on the back, but it's a big change in appearance.

Surface Pro 8: Specs

Regarding specs, we recently reported that Surface Pro 8 may be the first to adopt Thunderbolt. Microsoft has traditionally used USB3 and eventually made the leap to USB-C with the Surface Pro 7. But the business remained cool with Thunderbolt. Expect better processors (11th generation Intel Core), better screens, removable SSDs elsewhere.

In addition to Pro 8, the company plans to release Surface Book 4 and Surface Duo 2, which probably has some surprises.

Today's Tip: When you start Windows 10, the startup program will be delayed by 10 seconds and you will be able to load desktop and Windows services. If you want to reduce the startup time, refer to the manual to eliminate the startup delay.

In May 2021, Intel announced that it had updated its 11th generation U-series processors, surpassing existing turbo and clock speeds over previous models. The chips will ship in the fall with the launch of Surface Pro 8.

The additional 100MHz may not be much different than the Surface Pro 7, but the consumer version of the Surface Pro 7 only comes with a 10th generation chip, so the upgrade is much better.

The Surface Pro 8 doesn't have a 5G option, but the 4G LTE has one. However, these models will not be available until the end of 2021 (December) and may be for the commercial market. However, LTE is not only available on Core i5 models, it is an option on Core i3, i5, and i7 Surface Pro 8 models.

All personal consumption of Surface Pro 8 comes with Windows 11, but commercial purchases have the option of Windows 10 or Windows 11.

What's new in Surface Pro 8 is the top model with 32GB of RAM instead of 16GB, and a Core i7 and 1TB SSD. The price is $ 2,599.
