Microsoft is expected to launch new Floor hardware at its push party this Wednesday, October 2, and some internet marketing photographs have just leaked, allegedly providing us a glimpse – albeit a instead distant 1 – of the products set to be unveiled.
The rumor mill contends that we’re heading to see the new Surface Pro 7 and Surface area Laptop 3 at the occasion, and that would seemingly be what these leaked photos depict, which have been posted on Twitter by prolific Microsoft leaker WalkingCat (as noticed by Home windows Central).
here they are, normal matters…… (the previous a single is in the bag😌) pic.twitter.com/quEz9dwkOLSeptember 30, 2019
Even so, there is also the prospect that, rather than the Surface Professional 7, the visuals could demonstrate an all-new Surface area 7, which has also been the matter of speculation just lately.
It is hard to make way too much in the way of judgements, mainly because the equipment in the pictures are very distant in the various life style photographs (and not even seen at all in the final a single, unless that is the new Floor Automobile – in which scenario, Microsoft truly has still left Apple choking on its exhaust fumes). And moreover, the purported Surface products and solutions are shown from the rear, as effectively as from afar.
So, if we take it as study that these are genuine leaked promoting components from Microsoft – they unquestionably search convincing ample, and are from a somewhat dependable source – there’s not all that substantially that can be discerned. Apart from, if this is a revamped Surface Pro 7 and Floor Notebook 3, the style and design has not altered substantially even though that is not substantially of a surprise.
We can make some appealing guesses, even though. First, in the graphic under, the system shown – presumably the Surface area Notebook 3 – looks a touch thinner, and all over again it would not be sudden for Microsoft to have slimmed the notebook down.
Secondly, the image at the best of this write-up exhibits what is, at initial look, presumably the Area Pro 7 (with the kickstand). Nevertheless, the product looks strangely tall in comparison to our Area Professional 6.
The dimension of the machine relative to the webcam at the major also makes it appear extended – and normally more substantial – than the present Floor Professional 6, though it is tough to make much too considerably of a judgement on these factors from the instead distantly-pictured device.
Even now, this could suggest Microsoft has something of a surprise up its sleeve…
Area with Snapdragon?
Could this be the Area 7 system which has popped up in new rumors just lately? French tech site Frandroid previously documented on this alleged rebirth of the non-Professional version of the Surface pill, which would symbolize a major redesign, with a lot thinner bezels all around the screen, USB-C connectivity, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU.
So this would theoretically be Microsoft’s ‘always connected’ Floor which has been beforehand floating about as a rumor earlier this 12 months, and it would be primarily based on a modified Snapdragon 8cx chip.
As Computer Entire world studies, that chip could be fully rebranded for the system, and it further more observes that it was told independently, in advance of the Frandroid report, that the new Surface devices would contain CPUs from Intel, AMD, and a modified Snapdragon chip.
Also notice that the higher than picture mentions ‘LTE support availability’ which would match in with this remaining an ‘always connected’ Snapdragon-driven Floor. While, of training course the Area Professional does have an LTE spin, and if this was the Snapdragon 8cx, would not Microsoft’s internet marketing spiel mention 5G?
Alright, so this is commencing to come to be one thing of a minefield of guesswork, and even though it is exciting to speculate on these visuals, we simply just can not attract way too significantly in the way of conclusions just nonetheless.
Fortunately, we will not have lengthy to hold out to discover out if Microsoft may well just have a Surface 7, as effectively as a Floor Pro 7 and Floor Notebook 3, all set to rock in a couple of days.
A different rumor is that we might get a teaser for the Surface Centaurus dual-monitor laptop Microsoft allegedly has in the will work. We will pretty much definitely see the upcoming edition of Home windows 10 unveiled, as very well, and potentially a new Surface Mouse and Keyboard, so this is shaping up to be really some function.
