What you need to know
- An FCC filing of what is potentially the Surface Book 3 recently passed FCC certification.
- The filing could indicate that the Surface Book 3's launch is coming soon.
- Several details and specifications about the Surface Book 3 have already leaked.
The Surface Book 3's launch could be just around the corner. A new FCC filing that's potentially for the Surface Book 3 recently became public. The filing was submitted to the FCC last week and became public today (via Windows Latest).
The filing does not explicitly state that it's for the Surface Book 3, instead referring to a "Microsoft Corporation Portable Computing Device." The device's model number is 1899, which Windows Latest points out is different from the Surface Go 2's model number of 1927. If the filing is indeed for the Surface Book 3, it could indicate that the launch of the device is coming soon. FCC filings that are likely for the Surface Go 2 and Surface Earbuds were spotted earlier this month.
Based on several reports and our own sources, several details about the Surface Book 3 are already known. For example, it will feature 10th-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, though the specific line of 10th-generation processors isn't known. The Surface Book 3 will be available in 13.5-inch and 15-inch variants, like previous generations of the Surface Book. The smaller Surface Book 3 will feature integrated graphics or NVIDIA GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics. The larger 15-inch variant will have either an NVIDIA GTX 1650 Max-Q or NVIDIA Quadro graphics.
The Surface Book 3 is expected to be available starting at $1,700, ranging all the way up to $3,400. You can read all about the upcoming Surface Book 3 here.
