Microsoft Surface 7 could be packing Snapdragon chip

Lower priced Surface 7 tablet with LTE support could be unveiled by Microsoft this week

Leaked Microsoft images show the new Surface lineup will be 'anything but ordinary'

Marketing material for new Surface devices have leaked online earlier this morning, as well as SKUs and product descriptions for new Surface products, but now, there's more.

The rumor mill contends that we're going to see the new Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 at the event, and that would seemingly be what these leaked images depict, which were posted on Twitter by prolific Microsoft leaker WalkingCat (as spotted by Windows Central).

Port-wise, the Surface Pro 6 sports a Surface Connect port, a USB 3.0 port, a mini DisplayPort, a headphone jack, and a microSD slot.




As PC World reports, that chip could be completely rebranded for the device, and it further observes that it was told separately, before the Frandroid report, that the new Surface devices would include CPUs from Intel, AMD, and a modified Snapdragon chip. Sister site Laptop Mag reviewed the Surface Pro 6 and loved its fast performance, excellent battery life, and bright, colorful display.

Blass also included the text: "Not pictured here: dual-screen Surface", referencing the possible launch of Microsoft's rumoured dual-screen Surface device.

It also would seem as though there's a new Type Cover to go with this new Surface. Traditionally priced at $1,329, that's a whopping $429 off list and the lowest price we've ever seen for this Surface Pro 6 bundle. The bezels appear to be the same, as well as the kickstand and the Surface Keyboard. It doesn't look particularly revolutionary per se, but the images don't show the other side of the laptop, we aren't sure on the number of ports and so on. Previous leaks suggest that the laptops will offer a 3:2aspect ratio, and the larger 15-inch model will likely support the Surface Pen as well. From these images, the Surface Laptop now moves closer to looking like a MacBook Pro.
