Leaked Surface Pro 8 with 120Hz display and Thunderbolt support


Microsoft is preparing to launch a new Surface Pro 8 model next week, and a leak seems to have revealed exactly what to expect. Twitter account Shadow_Leak posted a photo of the Surface Pro 8 from what appears to be a retail listing. The account claims the Surface Pro 8 will ship with a new 13-inch 120Hz display with narrow bezels and two Thunderbolt ports.

The edge reported last week that the Surface Pro 8 will ship without USB-A ports, in favor of USB-C and Thunderbolt. We also reported that Microsoft has tested 120Hz displays for the Surface Pro line. The leaked image and specs are what we’ve heard from sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans.

The leak also reveals that Microsoft is moving to removable SSDs on the Surface Pro 8. This matches the more business-only Surface Laptop 4, Surface Pro X, and Surface Pro 7 and will make it easier for businesses to swap drives.

Microsoft is hosting a Surface hardware event on September 22, where we expect the company to announce the Surface Pro 8, a Surface Go 3, a newly designed Surface Book 4, an updated Surface Pro X, and the successor to the Android-powered Surface Duo. Stay tuned The edge for all Surface news on September 22, starting at 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT.
