Microsoft surprises with Surface Pro 7 Plus

On Monday, Microsoft surprised and launched the Surface Pro 7 Plus, an updated Surface Pro 7 with an eleventh-generation Intel Tiger Lake processor, lte option (but not 5g) and interchangeable ssd.

According to Microsoft, the hardware design is inspired by last year’s homework. Where users often had the need to be able to work in strange places in the home and, for example, quickly jump into video meetings at short notice.

Internally, the Surface Pro 7 Plus has either a dual-core Core i3-1115G4 processor or a quad-core Core i5-1135G7 or Core i7-1165G7. The memory consists of either 8, 16 or 32GB lpddr4x. The storage is 128, 256 or 512GB. The battery should last for 15 hours of use or 13.5 hours with lte.

Surface Pro 7 Plus also has a 5MP camera at the front and one at 8MP at the back, both of which have 1080p resolution. The speakers have also been upgraded to use Dolby Atmos. The hybrid computer can now use both Thunderbolt 4 as well as Microsoft’s own Surface Dock 2.

Microsoft has already opened up for corporate orders in selected markets. Price starts at 899 dollars, corresponding to approximately SEK 7,480, excluding local supplements such as Swedish VAT. Whether and when Surface Pro Plus will come here remains to be seen. According to The Verge the computer will only be sold to business users, and thus not directly to consumers.
