What you need to know
- A list of variants leaked online of what could be the Surface Pro 7 variants that are on the way.
- Microsoft is holding a Surface event on October 2, 2019, which will likely include a new Surface Pro.
- None of the variants listed use an ARM processor.
A list of variants has leaked online of what could be the upcoming Surface Pro 7. WinFuture reports that information about the upcoming Surface Pro 7 has appeared at retailers. If the information is accurate, it would confirm that the device is called the Surface Pro 7 and confirm details about internal specifications.
The list of storage and processor variants that WinFuture reports ranges from an Intel Core i3 with only 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage up to an Intel Core i7 variant with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage:
- Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i3, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD
- 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, 256 GB SSD
- Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD
Notably, none of the variants listed run an ARM processor. Instead, they all stay on Intel's chips, most likely Intel's 10th generation chips considering where the Surface line is in its refresh cycle, but that's simply speculation. Of course, since this is only a leak of variants, it doesn't confirm that there is not a version of a Surface device running a Snapdragon 8cx. A potential ARM Surface could be listed separately, not have the same naming scheme, or the leaked information could be incomplete or inaccurate. Microsoft generally keeps Surface information close to the vest, so we won't know all of the details until the October 2, event.
In our breakdown of what we expect to see at the October 2 event, we discuss a potential Surface Pro 7 as well as several other devices and accessories that will probably be announced at the event.
