Microsoft today unveiled its new solution for anyone looking for a hybrid with ARM architecture. The new Surface Pro X is official, and comes with a processor developed in conjunction with Qualcomm.
This is a device advertised as an alternative to today's Surface Pro. It is, however, the first Surface with ARM architecture since 2013. This also means abandoning this line to Intel processors.
Surface Pro X has 13 inch screen
The new Surface Pro X raises the bar for a 13-inch panel from the 12-inch model. According to Microsoft this is the device with the lowest margin margins in the hybrid market.
In charge of operations will be a custom version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx processor. The processor they called Surface SQ1 is a co-production between Qualcomm and Microsoft.
This is the new Microsoft Surface Pro X
On the outside, we don't see any major changes to this Surface Pro X. The corners are more rounded, and a dock has been added to attach the new Surface Slim (a pen). It is located on the top of the keyboard and is hidden when the protective cover is closed.
Surface Pro X weighs only 762 grams
In terms of weight, the Surface Pro X weighs only 762 grams and measures 5.3mm. It's the thinnest Surface ever, and features Type C USB connectivity, fast charging, and built-in LTE (4G) support.
What may leave users in doubt about this device is the SQ1 processor and its performance. Surface Pro X is expected to hit the market on November 5, and starts at $ 999.
