Even though the Surface Pro 8 was just released last year, the Surface Pro 9 might be here in a matter of months if Microsoft keeps to its usual upgrade cycle.

Looking back at the Surface Pro 8, it addressed a few design faults and included new features like a Thunderbolt connection and a 120Hz refresh rate, as well as being one of the first devices to ship with Windows 11 out of the box.

So, given all of this, can the Surface Pro 9 be considered one of Microsoft’s finest two-in-one devices? Continue reading to learn everything there is to know about the Surface Pro 9.

The Surface line of devices has been around for ten years, and Microsoft recently celebrated this milestone.

Because Microsoft has been tight-lipped regarding the forthcoming hybrid laptop, we can only speculate on the price for this year.

The Surface Pro 8 was released at a price of £999/$999.99(Approx.), whereas the

Surface Pro 7 was priced at £799/$749 (Approx.)

Surface Pro 7+ was priced at £909/$899.99(Approx.)

Surface Pro 6 was priced at £879/$899(Approx.)

Surface Pro 5 was priced at £799/$799(Approx.)

Remember that neither model comes with the Type Cover keyboard, which costs £149.99/$129.99(Approx.) extra.

As you can see, the price of the Surface Pro has gone up and down in recent years. The price rise for the Pro 8 includes some major improvements, but the surface pro 9 is unlikely to be significantly less expensive.

If Microsoft keeps to the same formula, we may anticipate the pricing to be similar to last year’s, if not somewhat higher, due to overall rises in consumer electronics prices affecting the industry as a whole.

We can only go on rumor and supposition because Mircosoft has yet to announce anything.

With ARM and Intel versions, Microsoft is planning to launch a next-generation Surface Pro device. According to the reports Microsoft is going to include both industry giants AMD and Intel in the latest Microsoft Surface Pro 9.

Surface Pro Microsoft Laptop

We’d expect to see at least the exact specifications as the Surface Pro 8, which features Thunderbolt 4 connectivity and USB-C charging. Thunderbolt 4 is important for next-generation devices since it allows users to connect up to two 4K monitors at once and transport data at up to 40Gbps.

This implies that data transfer speeds will be substantially quicker when using compatible technology, which is great news for creators who need to move 4K video material across devices.

The Pro 8 has a 13-inch display with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, which will most likely remain the same. The adjustable refresh rate ensures that the laptop runs smoothly even when under high demand, without draining the battery.

On Microsoft Surface Official YouTube Channel a video explaining the new ‘Right to Repair’ guidelines was just released. While it focuses on the Surface Laptop SE, this regulation might be extended to other Surface models in the future.

AMD has also officially debuted the Ryzen 6000 Series, their next generation of laptop CPUs announced at CES 2022. Every year, AMD laptop processors become more widespread. I personally use AMD-powered devices from big companies like Dell and Lenovo, so it’s not out of the question that Microsoft may try to incorporate the newest technology into its upcoming laptops.


More Ports And Connectivity Would Be Plus

Somehow Similar To Surface-Pro-8

If the new Microsoft Surface Pro 9, allows you to attach external hard drives, screens, keyboards, headphones, webcams, and GPUs. While Bluetooth allows you to connect devices such as a mouse or game controller, somehow connecting via Bluetooth makes your system a little bit slow. I personally experience that, That’s why more ports or connectivity options on the Surface Pro 9 would be nice.

But, this is one of the things I’m least excited about. Having more ports on the Surface Pro 9 will allow users to use it to its full potential or make the laptop more usable in different ways.


Surface Pro 9: 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake P-Series Processor

 The Microsoft Surface Pro 9 will be powered by Intel’s 12th generation Alder Lake CPU. Alder Lake devices, like Apple’s new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, rely on a hybrid design of high-performance and high-efficiency CPU cores on a single chip. The Surface Pro 9 would be a powerhouse with a 12th Gen Intel CPU.

It would also make sense to see models with Intel’s Alder Lake P-Series CPUs, as the 12th-gen processors should improve the hybrid’s performance over its predecessor, based on the other devices with the chips.

 Surface Pro family has generally used Intel’s U series processors with a 15W TDP(Thermal Design Power), while the P series nearly doubles that to 28W TDP.

Intel is also working on new Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs for laptops, with a release date of 30 March, so we may see the company’s latest graphics cards in the upcoming Surface Pro, though nothing has been announced regarding the specs as of yet.

I can’t say anything official about the Surface Pro 9 because there isn’t much Sureshot information yet, but I’ll make sure to update this page whenever Microsoft confirms facts like pricing, release date, and specs.

Microsoft Surface Pro 9 Signature Keyboard and Pen

Surface-Pro

The Slim Pen 2 and Signature Keyboard proved to be invaluable tools, but the touch controls and virtual keyboard performed admirably. These advantages compare favorably to a good pen and keyboard. Both peripherals must be included with the Surface Pro 9.

While I appreciate Microsoft’s intention to offer these two accessories separately, personally I don’t like the idea of selling accessories separately. I believe the Slim Pen and Signature keyboard should come included with the Surface Pro 9. This would not only save users money and time, but it would also make it easier for users to get started with their new Surface Pro 9 straight away and users will get to know all the features available in the new gadget.
