Software giant Microsoft is all set to hold a Surface event on September 22, 2021. The company at the event is expected to talk about the devices as well as Windows 11. Microsoft is ready to launch Windows 11 on October 5, 2021. The upcoming four Surface devices could have the latest software features in the new Operating System. However, it will not be all about Windows 11 as the company is also launching a second version of the Surface Duo foldable device that will be powered by Android in the upcoming week.
The event is expected to begin from 11 AM ET/ 8 AM PT on September 22, 2021. The Surface Pro is its flagship Surface device and has remained ever since Windows 8 was launched in 2021. The company is now planning to launch a new Surface Pro 8 that would be ready for Windows 11. In terms of design, the users should not expect any major changes. It has earlier clarified to the businesses that the company would continue with the Surface port connectivity. Microsoft has also said that the overall hardware design would be compatible with the accessories and docks.
Reports say that the device could have a bigger display on the Surface Pro 8 with smaller bezels. It is completely expected that at least one of the Surface Pro 8 model will support Thunderbolt. This will also mark the first time a Surface device will have support for Thunderbolt. It is planning to drop USB-A ports on at least one of the Surface Pro 8 model along with Thunderbolt support. The Surface Pro 8 will be powered by the latest 11 Gen chips by Intel with support for removable SSDs similar to what was seen on the Surface Pro X and Surface Laptop 4.
More updates about the new devices would be out on the day of the launch which is expected t be watched by millions.
