Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8 could still launch later this year

Surface Pro 8 2021

In January 2021, Microsoft announced the Surface Pro 7+ for
Business with three times better performance than its
predecessor. In addition to improved performance, Surface Pro
7+ also comes with enhanced hardware security features,
but it’s entirely aimed at business customers.

Many people were hoping that the next version of Surface Pro
would introduce a new design with smaller bezels similar to the
Surface Pro X. Surface Pro 7+ performance and security
improvements is certainly good news, but it’s a bit of bad news
for anyone hoping for a major redesign.

Surface Pro 7+ is not coming to the consumer market and there’s
a reason: the company wants to make room for the Surface Pro 8,
which is set to launch in the fall. As a result, the Surface
Pro 7 + will always remain exclusive to business, education
customers and front-line workers.

According to sources familiar with the development, Microsoft
is still considering design improvements for the 2-in-1 device
lineup.

Later this year (October-November), Microsoft is planning to
announce consumer-focused Surface Pro 8 with improved hardware
and design. The design of the device won’t be changed
completely, but there’ll be some noticeable improvements.

Like the Pro 7+, Surface Pro 8 will also come in configurations
that offer some much-needed powerful components. This includes
a new quad-core Intel processor and up to 32GB of RAM, which
should make it a very capable productivity machine.

Of course, the plans are always subject to change and Surface
Pro 8 launch could be pushed back.

Another device that could be refreshed is ‘Surface Laptop 4’,
which was
recently spotted passing through Bluetooth certification in the
US. Reports have suggested that Surface Laptop 4 could be
launched sooner than later and the Redmond firm might announce
the flagship laptop in April.

Unlike Surface Pro 8, Surface Laptop 4 is expected to ship with
the same design as the Surface Laptop 3. According to
certifications and leaks, Surface Laptop 4 will come with
Bluetooth 5.1, Wi-Fi 6 and new Ryzen chips.
