The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 with LTE capabilities is now available to order direct from the Microsoft Store. Just a handful of months after the Surface Pro 8 went on sale, the LTE models can now be ordered in both Intel Core i5 and Intel Core i7 models, though it appears it's only available in the Platinum colorway.
Right now, the LTE models can only be found on the Surface Pro 8 for Business SKU. It's unclear if the LTE models will be coming to the consumer SKU, but it shouldn't matter either way as consumers are able to order the business models just fine. Pricing starts at $1,350 for LTE with an Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.
For the first time on the Surface Pro line, Microsoft is also making the LTE model available with an Intel Core i7 processor. Previous Surface Pro models that offered LTE were limited to the Intel Core i5 variants, as those were fanless and therefore had the room for an additional LTE modem. With the Surface Pro 8, Microsoft has engineered the device with enough room for both fan and LTE modem.
Surface Pro 8 with LTE is shipping now direct from the Microsoft Store. We'll be sure to update this post with links to other retailers should they become available.
The Surface Pro 8 finally adopts the modern design that Microsoft first introduced with Surface Pro X, now with two USB-C ports that are Thunderbolt 4 enabled, an upgraded 13-inch display with a high-refresh rate of 120Hz, and support for the Surface Pro X style Type Covers with the Slim Pen charging cradle.
