Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is finally coming


The upgrade of Microsoft flagship Surface Pro line of detachable tablets is in the way, in the form of Surface Pro 8. 


The Surface Pro 7 has been here for a while now and we're well into 2021. So far the new release of Surface is the slightly upgraded version called the Surface Pro 7+, and it's meant only for business and school users.


The Surface Pro 8 is as always a convertible tablet it's on its way. Based on the latest credible leak, the Windows Latest, citing sources familiar with its development, claims the Surface Pro 7+ was meant for business users only to make room for the Surface Pro 8, which will be released in the fall. 


Yes, the Surface Pro 8 is on its way, but you'll have to wait until the end of the year. The typical launch schedule for the Pro 8 will drop in October (or November if it slips further) which is exactly two years after the Surface Pro 7. 


Expecting a new change in the upcoming new Surface Pro 8? Well, the design of the new model has some improvements but it won't be a complete overhaul. This means that the Surface Pro 8 at least will have slimmer bezels similar to the Surface Pro X.


It is also expected Surface Pro 8 to bring performance improvements. The tablet will be equipped with the latest Intel 11th Gen CPUs, the same used in the latest flock of laptops. The tablet could get up to 32GB of RAM, which would be surprising for such a compact machine (many ultra-thin laptops stop at 16GB). 


The arrival of the Surface Pro 8, especially after the Surface Pro 7, disappointed with below-average battery life and the Surface Pro X remains hamstrung by its ARM-based processor. A refresh modernized design and new internals would be nice to start a new revolution for the Surface Pro tablets.
