According to the folks at Thurrott, Microsoft has decided to create a couple of new versions of its Surface Pro tablets which are powered by Intel processors. Surface Pro 6 is the latest model that Microsoft offers and it is powered by Intel Core i5 or Core i7. Well, it looks like Microsoft has been inspired by the likes of Apple who launch multiple versions of its iPad Pro because the Windows parent is reportedly getting ready to launch a couple of new Surface Pro models that are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor.
Surface Pro with Qualcomm Processor
Even though Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processors are quite popular with other companies, Microsoft has never shown interested. This might change during the upcoming months because the folks at Thurrott are reporting that the Microsoft has already created a couple of Surface Pro prototype models that are fueled by a Snapdragon processor. Nonetheless, what we can take from this is that ARM-based laptops and tablets are losing their popularity.
We should also mention that Microsoft is rumored to be working on a special tablet called Surface Go. What makes this tablet special is the fact that its being developed specially to compete against Apple’s iPad. Seeing how Microsoft has started using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors, we might see the same happening to Surface Go. In addition, Microsoft is probably going to go with the latest Snapdragon 855 octa-core CPU.
A New Design
Since we previously talked about Microsoft’s new Surface Pro models, we want to go over the fact that they are expected to ship with a brand-new design. While we might not have that much official information about the ne Surface Pro designs, we do know that they will feature the much-awaited USB-C Port.
