Surface Pro 8 is getting a larger display with a high refresh rate and smaller bezels, plus dual Thunderbolt ports, according to a new leak.
“Microsoft Surface Pro 8 [includes] Intel’s 11th-generation Core processor, [a] 13″ 120Hz [display with] high refresh rate [and] narrow border[s], Windows 11, dual Thunderbolt Interfaces, [and] replaceable SSD hard drives,” a tweet with a poorly translated version of the Japanese advertisement reads.
The accompanying image of the ad shows a form factor that looks exactly like Surface Pro X, and not Surface Pro 7. There’s even a Surface Pen Slim with an associated charging slot in the top of its keyboard cover, just like with Pro X. The image is of too low quality to determine which ports and slots are available.
And that’s a bit suspicious: by most accounts, Surface Pro 8 would use the same form factor as its predecessors, and not that of Surface Pro X, but with a bigger display and some other improvements.
Microsoft is holding a virtual Surface and Windows 11 event on Wednesday, so I guess we’ll learn then. But this is certainly the direction that Surface fans had hoped Microsoft would go with Surface Pro 8.
