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.
