Microsoft Officially Announces the Surface Pro 7+

Microsoft Officially Announces the Surface Pro 7+

The improved 50.4Wh battery as opposed to 46.5Wh previously now allows Surface Pro 7 Plus to get 15 hours of battery which is still 4.5 hours higher than the non-Plus variant. Core i3, i5 and i7 variants will be available, starting with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and rising to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. While the design remains mostly unchanged, there are a host of noteworthy internal upgrades such as new-generation Intel processors, more RAM, cellular connectivity, and swappable SSD drives.

As its name suggests, Surface Pro 7+ is simply a new set of models of Surface Pro 7, the 2-in-1 tablet PC that Microsoft launched in late 2019.

Microsoft announced a new Surface 2-in-1 computer today. There is also an i3 SoC variant which is coupled with Intel UHD Graphics whereas the other two variants i5/i7 are coupled with Intel Iris Xe Graphics.

Microsoft, however, positions the Surface Pro 7+ as a hardware refresh, so while the design is pretty much the same as on the Pro 7, the magic happens under the hood.

Talking about the availability, the Surface Pro 7 Plus is available in the US starting on January 15th while businesses in the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and several European countries will get the device too. It has added the removable SSD option (accessible via a slot under the stand) "for data retention, to support the security and privacy needs of business and educational organizations." . There are also speakers with Dolby Atmos, USB-C and USB-A ports, P2 connector for headphones, card reader (LTE version) and support for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.

There are 1.6W stereo speakers with support for Dolby Atmos to deliver an wonderful sound experience.

As far as the colour options are concerned, the users would be able to choose from Matte Black or Platinum. The company has said that this laptop will be available for purchase in select markets of Europe, Asia, and North America and shipping of the laptops will start by the end of this week.
