Microsoft revealed a new LTE-capable Surface Pro, but didn't state which CPU would be inside. I think Microsoft has been working with Qualcomm and getting their Snapdragon 835 processor inside of a new portable Surface Pro with LTE capabilities. It would be the big change Qualcomm and Microsoft are teasing for Computex 2017, that's for sure.

We broke the story of Qualcomm and Microsoft taking over the world at Computex, where they tease that they will celebrate the growing ecosystem that will "bring an out-of-this-world mobile PC experience to the masses".

Patrick Moorhead writes over at at Forbes that Microsoft went with a Qualcomm LTE chip for the new Surface Pro, and that the new Surface Pro with LTE will have an Intel CPU, and not the Snapdragon 835.
