Microsoft has introduced a new version of Surface Pro 7. The new model comes with removable SSD storage, LTE connectivity, and great battery power. Called Surface Pro 7+, it will only be available to business and academic clients, reports Engadget.
Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ comes in many variations. The basic model includes Intel Core i3 (1115G40) and upgrades to Intel Core i7 (1165G7). The Core i5 variant (1135G7) has an optional LTE. The base version Core i3 comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The latest high-end model supports up to 32GB of RAM up to 1TB of SSD storage. Price starts at $ 899 (₹ 66,000 approximately).
According to The Verge, Microsoft’s new Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ offers up to 15 hours of battery life. It is much better than the 10.5 hours offered in the original Surface Pro 7. The report suggests that the battery upgrade is due to Intel’s 11th gen chips. It also highlights the increase in battery capacity from 46.5Wh to 50.4Wh. The removable SSD works just as it does on Microsoft’s Surface Pro X or Surface Laptop 3.
“We’ve changed a lot on the inside,” Robin Seiler, vice president of Microsoft’s device management company, told The Verge. “Actually we needed to investigate the interior so we could put an SSD here, so when we did that we also updated with TDM (Thermal Design Model) to create more space for larger battery size.”
Some new device specifications remain similar to the Surface Pro 7. It has the same 12.3-inch PixelSense display. This device comes with a USB Type-C port and a USB-A port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
