Microsoft Announces Surface Pro 7 Plus


Microsoft has announced an update to the Surface Pro line with the updated Surface Pro 7 Plus model available only to businesses and schools.

Microsoft has modified the internal parts of the device to make way for intel's newer 11th-generation processors, a larger battery, a removable SSD, and an LTE connection.

This marks the return of LTE to the Surface Pro line for the first time since 2015 with the Snapdragon X20 LTE modem.

A variety of models are available, from the 1115G4 model with the Intel Core i3 processor to the 1165G7 model with the Intel Core i7 processor.

The Intel Core i5 1135G7 will be equipped with an optional LTE network only and starts at $1,149, while the Core i3 model comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $899.

The top Core i7 option can also be configured at $2,799 up to 32GB of RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage.

Microsoft now promises up to 15 hours of battery life via Surface Pro 7 Plus, thanks to Intel's newer 11th-generation processors and 50.4W battery.

Surface Pro 7 Plus also comes with the same PixelSense display with 12.3 inches and 2736 × 1824 pixels, with a single USB-C port, a USB-A port, a 3.5mm headphone port, and a Surface Connect port.

Support ing models for wireless networks include the MicroSDXC card reader, while they are replaced by nano-SIM cards in LTE support forms.

Surface Pro 7 Plus has some removable SSD and works just as it works with Surface Pro X or Surface Laptop 3, allowing businesses to switch drives for repair.

Microsoft's hardware team modified the interior parts of surface Pro 7 to make the SSD component removable, while the TDM thermal design model was updated, allowing a slightly larger battery to fit the same space.

Microsoft plans to start shipping Surface Pro 7 Plus to customers on January 15 in the United States, and will also be available in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and a large number of European countries.
