Recently, Microsoft held a new product launch conference and brought a new flagship product Suface Pro X. As an upgrade of the Surface Pro X launched last year, the new product is equipped with a 13-inch touch screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2880×1920. Microsoft claims that this product is equipped with Surface Pro’s thinnest design so far, while still retaining a unique stand.
Surface Pro X is equipped with two different chips, last year’s Microsoft SQ 1 and Qualcomm’s new SQ 2. Microsoft did not provide detailed information about these chipsets, but since SQ 1 is based on Snapdragon 8cx, SQ 2 may be based on Snapdragon 8cx Gen2. This is further confirmed in the GPU specification, where SQ 1 is equipped with Adreno 685 GPU and SQ2 is Adreno 690 GPU.
Surface Pro X is equipped with a 5-megapixel front camera that supports 1080P video shooting. The product is also equipped with a separate camera for Windows Hello face authentication. On the back is a 10-megapixel camera that supports 4K video capture. In addition, Surface Pro X is also equipped with Dolby Audio’s dual far-field microphones and 2W stereo speakers. In terms of interfaces, Surface Pro X has 2 USB-C ports, Surface Connect port, Gigabit LTE with nanoSIM and eSIM support, A-GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0.
Surface Pro X offers 8GB and 16GB LPDDR4x memory to choose from. In terms of storage, 128, 256 and 512GB mobile M.2 2230 SSDs are provided. As for the price, the Surface Pro X equipped with the Microsoft SQ2 processor only supports 16GB of running memory. The 256GB version is priced at US$1,500 (approximately RMB 10,200) and the 512GB version is priced at US$1800 (approximately RMB 12,000). The new Surface Pro X is compatible with the keyboard that was launched last year. It costs $104 (about 710 yuan (USD $101) ) to purchase separately. Last year’s Surface Slim Pen is also compatible, and is sold separately for US$145 (about 980 yuan (USD $140) ).
