Microsoft during the fall presentation presented new devices that will join the Surface line and will work on the Windows 11 operating system.
One of the most anticipated products is the flagship Surface Laptop Studio, which is considered the successor to the Surface Book hybrid laptops. Instead of a removable display, it uses a hinged keyboard, allowing this device to operate in three modes: laptop, stage (the 14.4-inch display slides forward at an angle to cover the keyboard) and studio (effectively converts to a tablet).
The Surface Laptop Studio is powered by 11th Gen Intel Core processors and will have 16GB or 32GB of RAM depending on the model, and up to 2TB external storage. It supports wireless charging of Surface Slim Pen 2, Thunderbolt 4 and Windows 11, which will be released on October 5th (the laptop itself will be released at the same time).
Also, updated versions of Surface Pro X and Surface Go 3 were announced. At the event, a Wi-Fi version of the ultraportable Pro X tablet was shown without the ability to connect to cellular networks (but with support for emulation of x86 and x64 applications). The charge capacity was not mentioned, but it is believed that it will last longer than the LTE version, which has a battery life of up to 15 hours. The novelty will cost $ 899 (approximately 65,500 rubles at the current exchange rate) and will be available for order from today.
The flagship Surface Pro 8 tablet received a 13-inch display with a frequency of 120 Hz, thin bezels and support for Dolby Vision, Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors (more powerful than previous models), a 10 megapixel main camera, Thunderbolt 4 support, a connector Surface Connect for charging and a new keyboard with storage compartment for Surface Slim Pen 2. Microsoft claims that the tablet will last up to 16 hours and will immediately receive Windows 11. Prices start at $ 1,099, or about 80,000 rubles, not including the cost of the keyboard and pen … Surface Pro 8 will launch on October 5th.
The other major update is the Surface Duo 2, a second-generation foldable smartphone with a dual-screen up to 90Hz, Snapdragon 888 processor, 5G support and a triple camera unit. On the side of the new smartphone, there is a strip display that shows the time, notifies about calls and messages, as well as the percentage of the charge. The Surface Duo 2 will retail for $ 1,499, $ 100 more than its predecessor, and will ship on October 20.
