Until now, all we know about Microsoft Surface Book 3 comes from rumors and leaks, even though the Surface Book 2 launched in 2017. While Microsoft did not release any official details on the Surface Book 3, speculations are rolling out over the Internet. In this article, we’ll present you some of the latest rumors and leaks on Microsoft Surface Book 3. Even more, according to a report about which we’ll talk below, Surface Book 3 might come out in late 2019 or early 2020.
Microsoft Surface Book 3 release date rumors
The speculation that Microsoft would launch later this year or in early 2020 comes from a report posted by Tech Radar, and it is based on the fact that Intel Ice Lake CPU series will roll out in December 2019. Since the new Intel Ice Lake processors are specially designed for laptops and 2-in-1 devices, Microsoft Surface Book 3 might prefer to be among the first 2-in-1 devices to use the new CPUs.
Accordingly, Microsoft Surface Book 3 might come out soon after the release of the Intel Ice Lake processors. That means we can see Surface Book 3 hitting the shelves by the end of 2019 or in early 2020.
What would be new in the upcoming Surface Book 3?
Besides implementing a revamped CPU, the Intel Ice Lake technology, Microsoft might also prefer to upgrade some of the other components of the 2-in-1 device. That would include a revamped battery since the one on Surface Book 2 has disappointed the users, to some extent. Also, the next installment in the Surface Book series might weight less than Surface Book 2, and that’s another fact that would please many of the users.
As for how much the future Surface Book 3 would cost, speculations indicated that its price range would be around the same values as its predecessor, Microsoft Surface Book 3. Until we have something official from Microsoft, all we have are these rumors and speculations that we discussed above. However, it would be indeed great to receive Microsoft Surface Book 3 in late 2019.
