Microsoft is gearing up for its September 22 event where we should learn about some new Surface devices, with the Surface Pro 8 reportedly rocking a super-smooth 120Hz display.
The new Surface Pro 8 would not only have a 120Hz display but it would also have narrower bezels on its 13-inch panel, making it a tiny bit smaller than the Surface Pro 7 but superior in many ways. In some ways it'll be better -- thinner bezels + 120Hz display -- but Microsoft is reportedly going with an LCD display on the Surface Pro 8, not a higher-end LTPO OLED panel.
Inside, we should expect Intel 11th Gen Core CPUs, on the sides we should get Thunderbolt connectivity -- hopefully, expecting -- Thunderbolt 4. One of the biggest standouts for me is the replaceable SSD, meaning you can upgrade to a much larger, faster SSD than the stock SSD in the Surface Pro 8.
I think the biggest star of the Surface Pro 8 show will be that it'll have Windows 11 by default, which should be interesting to see how it rolls out onto Microsoft's flagship Surface Pro 8 when it launches later this year.
