As the launch of Surface Pro 8 approaches, we continue to know the details thanks to the various leaks and certifications. Although the new version of the device keeps the design unchanged, the improvements presented by Intel and the new memory and storage variants are a cause for optimism.
Early leaks suggested we would have a variant of Surface Pro 8 with LTE, after the latest with this technology was the Surface Pro 2017 (5th gen). However, the Korean certification of the device confirms that the device will have a variant with LTE connectivity in the US, Europe and other markets.

Surface Pro regains LTE connectivity four years later
With LTE connectivity, is confirmed another of the great values of Surface Pro 8. This iteration will eliminate the variants with 4 GB of RAM, even if ultimately it will retain the Intel Core i3 processors in its base models. On this occasion, we will have 11th generation Intel processors.
With the integration of these new processors, the Surface Pro 8 will benefit from better energy efficiency and a renewed Intel Xe graphics card. In this way, it is possible that we can use the device to play Valorant or League of Legends with high frame rate. In addition, we could enjoy titles like GTA V or Forza Horizon, although with a lower level of detail.
As for the more powerful versions, we would have variants with up to 1TB of NVMe SSD storage and 32GB of RAM. As we said, the screen, design and ports used in the Surface Pro 8 remain unchanged from its predecessor.
