The tech world is yet again outraged by another gossip involving the leaked images of Microsoft Surface Pro 8 and by the look of the surface pro images, tech freaks are not happy with it!
The said images of Microsoft’s 2-in-1 laptop started surfacing on the internet earlier this month, featuring the same old aesthetics of previous Surface Pro tablets, and it looks like the company hasn’t really altered the original design.
The leaked images feature the 12.3-inch Pixel Sense display with larger bezels on the four sides, including the standard kickstand design. And since tech enthusiasts were expecting something new and unique, the images have so far been received as a big disappointment!
In addition to this, the leaked photos apparently show the unchanged Type Cover keyboard. Though, it performs well enough, which is not really a worrisome thing.
The company’s sheer laziness and lack of experimentation with the gadget’s design is what’s really putting fans off! Fans are displeased that the company won’t be adopting a more advanced and modern look of the Surface Pro X, which has prominently fewer bezels and a slimmer body.
Needless to say, there’s still hope for a change in design, as the leaked images may not even be original! And even if they are, the images showed an engineering prototype, so expect a few alterations before the final product. The company still has a chance to tweak its design, especially after considering consumers’ reviews on the bezels.
The leaked images traced back to a Reddit user @Unreliable_noob, who claimed to have purchased the sample Microsoft Surface Pro 8 device that was spotted on eBay.
Even though the leaked designs haven’t been verified yet, it is expected that the Surface Pro 8 will come with the latest Intel Core i-7-1165G7 processor, an improved graphical power through the latest Xe integrated graphics accelerated, along with 32 GB of RAM with 1TB of SSD storage.
Moreover, it’s been rumored that the 2-in-1 laptop won’t feature the Thunderbolt 3 port, but it will come with a 50,030mWh battery, which is quite bigger than its predecessor Surface Pro 7 that only has 45,000mWh.
Then again, these are all just rumors, so it’s best not to take this news to your heart and hope for better than the design leaked.
No official announcements yet
The tech giant Microsoft hasn’t announced any release date yet or the gadget’s official specs, but fans are expecting to hear something soon.
Many are desperate to know how much the device will cost, but since it’s an upgraded device, it’s surely going to cost much more than the previous one. If the specs turn out to as good as expected, though, it will be quite worth it!
The expected price of the Microsoft Surface Pro X 2020 starts at $999 for the 8GM RAM and also comes with the 128GB storage option.
