Microsoft recently announced that it will be holding a media event to unveil new Surface devices on October 2. This year’s event will be live-streamed and it could have a lot of surprises, including the rumoured Surface Pro with Intel’s 10th generation Ice Lake processors, Surface Go with Intel Core m3, and even the dual-screen Surface Centaurus.
Microsoft is also expected to take the wraps off the highly-anticipated Surface Pro 7 at this event.
As we’re getting closer to the Surface event on October 2, a new leak from European retailers revealed that the Redmond firm is working on at least 5 different configurations of Surface Pro 7.
The entry model of the Surface Pro 7 could be powered by Intel Core i3 to target as many buyers as possible. Microsoft also plans to offer the Surface Pro 7 with Intel Core i5 and Core i7. The other hardware configurations include:
- Intel Core i3, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD
- Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD
- Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD
- Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD
- Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD
It’s worth noting that the Redmond firm may not announce the Surface Pro 7 with 1TB of internal storage on October 2, but it could be announced later this year or next year if there’s enough demand.
According to other reports, Microsoft is also working on an ARM version of Surface Pro, but it’s unclear if Snapdragon-powered device will see daylight on October 2.
