Surface Pro 7 is, perhaps, one of the highly anticipated releases from Microsoft. However, whether or not it measures up to the growing demands of its target audience is something we’ll have to wait and see.even though Microsoft has consistently been producing some of the best Windows tablets and 2-in-1 laptops for a while now with its Surface lineup.
the Surface Pro 6 unveiled back in October 2018 only offered small improvements over the 2017 model.
New Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Models –

- Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD
- Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD

- Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD
Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Release Date –
Because the Surface Pro 6 only recently came out, it’s unlikely that we’ll see the next one be released before the end of 2019.
It’s likely that the Surface Pro 7 could come out in October 2019. The release schedule for Surface Pro devices seems to be about every 16 to 18 months. In other words, there may not be a Surface Pro 7 until Spring or Summer 2020.
We may see it hit the streets in October, however, if Microsoft wants to stick to that annualized release. The Redmond corporation has already sent out the invites and is gearing up for its October 2 event.
Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Price –
As for pricing, the Surface Pro 6 with 128 GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, and the Intel Core i5 processor currently retails for $900. That price still does not include a keyboard or a Surface Pen. It would be nice to see Microsoft bundle in both with the next Surface to help reduce the overall final price. we don’t expect that to change. Since the cost of laptops and other Windows 10 devices is often offset based on its internal components,
so you can expect for starting configurations of the Surface Pro 7 to come in at the same $900 pricing.
Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Specs –
WinFuture claim that the entry-level model will be powered by an Intel Core i3-10110Y CPU – that’s a processor from the Comet Lake range.
In terms of specs, we’re anticipating that Intel’s 10th Generation Ice Lake CPUs will be rolled into the Surface Pro 7, which would keep it competitive with other top 2-in-1s. And we may even see a Surface Pro 7 with a Core i9 configuration, which would considerably raise the price. Based on a report from german tech site WinFuture, the Surface Pro 6 will start with a 10th Gen Core i3 CPU with 4GB of RAM and go up to a Core i7 with 16GB. It appears the Surface Pro 7 will run on 10th Gen Comet Lake chips, not Intel’s 10-nanometer Ice Lake variant. On the other hand, another leak claims the Surface Pro 7 will have a 10th Gen Intel Core i5-1035G1 processor — an Ice Lake chip — but you should probably take that with some skepticism.
The Surface Pro 7 is also rumored to arrive with an ARM-based variant running on a Qualcomm 8cx SoC that is expected to be about as fast as a Core i5 CPU. That chip is said to be custom-made by Microsoft and will serve as a reference for other Windows laptop makers. Those rumors are from a report from IT tech site Petri, which also claimed that the Surface Pro 7 will have a familiar design when it’s unveiled in October.
Surface Pros options typically come with higher and lower processor options – last year’s Surface Pro 6’s featured Core i5-8250U and i7-8650U Kaby Lake Refresh chips.
Microsoft Surface Pro 7 : What We Expect –
Blazing speed –
Back at CES 2019, Intel unveiled Ice Lake, the first 10nm processors for laptops. And, while we don’t know a whole lot about the processors’ performance, the smaller manufacturing process should undeniably lead to improved performance and efficiency.It’s doubtful that the top-end Surface Pro 7 would utilize an ARM processor like this, as there would be possible problems with software emulation of x86 apps.
Nevertheless, we might see an entry-level Surface device implementing these ARM chips.
USB – C Ports –
Most Windows 10 laptops or tablets come with USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, alongside USB-A. But not the Surface Pro. In Microsoft’s 2-in-1 Surface family, that option is reserved strictly for the Surface Go, the smaller version of the Surface Pro. Microsoft has been resistant to the new technology, and it has become a glaring omission from powerful devices like the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2.
We’re hoping that the Surface Pro 7 changes that and adds one or more USB-C ports. A patent from Microsoft originally filed in May of 2018 suggests just that, showing that Microsoft could be considering a special magnetic USB-C cable for charging.It can be held in place securely, without damage to the device if a consumer happens to trip on the cable and force it out.
We were especially disappointed with the speed of the 256GB SSD on the Surface Pro 6 (that costs an additional $300). We would ideally like to see speeds above its category average, which is currently 327 MBps. I would personally love to see speeds of – at least – more than 500 MBps, especially since the MacBook Air’s 256GB SSD offers speeds of 2,066 MBps on our tests.
