While the renders have been faked, the specifications are in line what The Verge has already revealed. Ultimately, the Chinese retailer may have read The Verge’s leak and created this image from that. However, The Verge considers that the image is enough to report on.
As many people have realised, the image above is of the Surface Pro X, not the Surface Pro 8. Simply, the Chinese retailer has poorly edited the image with a Windows 11 background. For one, the background image is not straight. Nonetheless, Anandtech included an identical marketing render in its Surface Pro X refresh coverage last year.
Presumably, Microsoft will sell the Surface Pro 8 with Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors, probably the Core i3-1115G4, Core i5-1135G7 and the Core i7-1165G7. Microsoft already sells these processors in the Surface Pro 7+, for reference.
Microsoft’s Surface hardware event commences on September 22 at 11:00 ET (UTC 15:00). Wednesday’s event should also mark the arrival of the Surface Book 4, Surface Duo 2, Surface Go 3 and a new Surface Pro X. Reputedly, the Surface Pro 8 will start at US$799 and €680 in the Eurozone. It is unclear what memory configuration Microsoft will include in the US$799 entry-level model, though.
American tech giant Microsoft will be launching a new Surface Pro 8 model next week and a new leak of the upcoming device appears to have revealed exactly what to expect from it. According to The Verge, a Twitter user recently published a photo of the Surface Pro 8 from what appears to be a retail listing. The account claimed the Surface Pro 8 will ship with a new 13-inch 120Hz display with narrow bezels and two Thunderbolt ports.
Last week, the outlet has reported that the Surface Pro 8 would ship without USB-A ports, in favour of USB-C and Thunderbolt. They also reported that Microsoft has been testing 120Hz displays for the Surface Pro lineup. The leaked image and specs line up with what was heard from sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans. The leak also revealed that Microsoft is moving towards removable SSDs on the Surface Pro 8. This matches with the Surface Laptop 4, Surface Pro X, and the business-only Surface Pro 7 plus and will henceforth make it easier for businesses to swap out drives.
The company has planned a Surface hardware event on September 22, 11 AM ET / 8 AM PT onwards, where it’s expected from the company to announce the Surface Pro 8, a Surface Go 3, a newly designed Surface Book 4, an updated Surface Pro X, and the successor to the Android-powered Surface Duo, as per The Verge.
