Microsoft present today the Surface Pro 7+ which is identical to the existing Surface Pro 7… at least on the outside. The changes are made at the component level for ever more power.
Microsoft Surface Pro 7+, an improved Surface Pro 7
The Surface Pro 7+ features 11th generation Intel processors (Tiger Lake). There are the Intel Core i3-1115G4, Core i5-1135G7 and Core i7-1165G7. There is also the Iris Xe chip which provides much better performance in the graphics part. At least this is the case for the Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. The model with the Intel Core i3 remains with the Intel UHD Graphics. The processors are accompanied by 8, 16 or 32 GB of RAM.
Another noticeable change from the Surface Pro 7+ is the presence of a removable SSD. Several storage capacities are available: 128, 256, 512 GB and 1 TB. On the other hand, the two-in-one computer supports 4G thanks to the Snapdragon X20 network chip from Qualcomm. But this is only available with the model equipped with the Intel Core i5 processor. The Intel Core i3 and Intel Core i7 variants only exist in Wi-Fi.
Here are the other technical characteristics:
- Bluetooth 5.0
- Wi-Fi 6
- 1x USB-C port, 1x USB-A port, 1x microSDXC reader, 1x Surface Connect +, 1x jack
- Battery life up to 15 hours (Wi-Fi) or 13.5 hours (4G)
- Dimensions: 292 mm x 201 mm x 8.5 mm
- Weight: 775 grams (Core i3 or i5), 790 grams (Core i7)
- Colors: platinium or black
No Surface Pro 7+ for the general public
Microsoft will release the Surface Pro 7+ on January 15 in various countries, including several in Europe. Only American prices are announced for the moment: between 899 dollars and 2799 dollars.
But there is a big but with the announcement of the Surface Pro 7+. Indeed, Microsoft announces that the product will be only for professionals and the world of education. The general public will have to be content with the existing Surface Pro 7, before having a possible Surface Pro 8 later.
