Ahead of an expected launch next year, more details of Microsoft’s upcoming Surface Pro have leaked. A number of model configurations have shown up on retail websites in Europe. Alongside the regular Pro 8 models, Microsoft will be bringing back a beloved feature from 2017’s Surface Pro. 4G LTE connectivity has returned.Sitting at the top of the specs sheet is the Core i7 mode, with 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD. Core i5 models are expected to ship with 8GB or 16GB of RAM and various storage options from 128GB upwards.
The second variant is the 4G LTE model to allow for cellular collection for those needing as much connectivity as possible. These won’t be the first Surface Pro machines with LTE support, but it’s never been an automatic optio. For all the talk of mobility it has remains a rare sight over the years. You have to go back to the fifth Surface Pro in 2017 for an Intel-powered Pro that offered an LTE option, although every one of the current Surface Pro X models offers LTE (one of the advantages of Windows 10 on ARM is the easier integration of mobile communications).
