What’s up, And Microsoft blew everyone away by announcing their future foldable lineup. The Surface Neo and the Android Power Surface duo.
I did not see a phone coming, but it incredible. But the catch is that these aren’t coming out until the end of 2020. Microsoft wanted to showcase it to get developers on board, which I think is a smart idea.
They announced surface earbuds, which have some cool features but are kind of designed like a pop socket.
But besides all of that, they did announce the brand new surface lineup, the surface pro 7, the surface laptop, 13.5, and 15-inch variance.
And these super-thin arm-powered surface pro X. If you’re in the market for these, let me break down the differences between them and compare their features. So you can pick the best surface product for your needs.
The first product is the Surface Pro 7. This is a routine spec upgrade.
The kickstand design is super familiar, has the same beautiful 12.3-inch pixel since touchscreen display with new studio mikes to help pick up voices better. Finally, we get a USP seaport. There is a USP there too well, along with a headphone jack.
We get 10th Gen Intel isolates processors, dual-core i3 and quad-core AI 5, and 7 options with up to 1 terabyte of storage and upgraded with fast charging. That goes from zero to 80 percent in less than an hour.
So a decent spec bumps if you’re a surface pro fan and some new type cover colors, too, which look very nice. These will start at 749$.
The surface pro that I’m excited about this year is the arm-powered surface pro X.
This is a full redesign that is thin at 7.3 millimeters, has much smaller bezels, and has a larger 13-inch touchscreen pixel since the display with the new studio mikes. Still, that 3 to 2 aspect ratio makes this familiar to surface users.
You get to USGBC ports, which is great. I feel like 1 port isn’t enough, so I’m glad there are 2 here.
The approach to this is different because this surface is built to behave more like a smartphone. The arm chip inside is a modified version of the Qualcomm AC x chip that we saw announced earlier this year called the Microsoft Eskew.
One chip clocked at three gigahertz. This 1 is beefed up and engineered for performance with the Adreno 6. 85 EPU and Windows 10 X there is built-in gigabit LTE with Nantel SIM and Easom support.
So we’ll be connected and the battery life will be much better with this model since the power consumption will be lower.
Microsoft is claiming up to 13 hours of battery life, but I can’t wait to get this 1 in and tested to see if that’s true.
This feels like the surface of the feature. They have a brand new slim pin well for this model. It’s more like a flat carpenter’s pencil compared to the existing surface pen.
I’m sure this will be a preference thing on which 1 will be more comfortable while sketching or planning. And check this out.
There is a hidden housing made for this pen in the new signature keyboard and it wirelessly charges.
I think this is game-changing available in 128, 256, and 512-gigabyte variance when you pick one up.
This for sure is the surface that I’m most excited about, new design. It’s so clean with these beautiful edges. It’s light. It’s then a bigger display.
It’s always-on, connected to windows, 10x fast charging. So it’s loaded with features available only in matte black. But I think that’s OK. I can’t wait to try this one. I think this is gonna be the winner. This starts at 999$.
The surface laptop gets a nice bump up this year. There’s now a choice of either a13.5 or 15-inch models. So I’m glad that there’s a choice for the end-user.
The design is updated with super clean lines. There are no breaks anywhere, not even an indent for opening the lid on the body.
There’s no rubber or plastic rim around. The display is so smooth when you open it up.
I think might be the cleanest laptop designed to date. I love the way it looks. Both at the displays look great. 3 by 2 aspect ratio. Different resolutions, but both 201 PBI. It’s available in four different colors for the 13.5-inch model.
Platinum, cobalt, blue, black, and the new Sanshin Finnish. Or for the 15 inches, you get fewer choices, just the platinum or the black. But you do have a choice of either Alcantara or metal for the keyboard, which is nice.
And this keyboard has 1.3 millimeters of travel and it’s super comfortable.
So I can’t wait to type on this laptop. The trackpad is bigger this year for me. This is a welcome change. Much larger than the surface pro seven trackpad, which I find to still be a little too small for my taste.
You get one USP A and one USGBC port. I would love to see more ports here.
It would have been nice to have 2 like the surface pro x surface port on the other side for that quick charging in terms of power. The 13.5 inches has the 10th generation Intel isolate processors ie 5 or 7.
Until plus 950 graphics, up to 16 gigabytes of DDR for ex ram. But the 15 inch is the 1 that I’m interested in. These are powered by HMD, either Reisen 5 or Rising 7 with either Veiga 9 or Veiga 11 graphics, which should be interesting.
You should be able to casually game on this, which I can’t wait to try out.
It does have slower DDR for RAM here at 2400 megahertz, but it goes up to 32 gigs of RAM, so I can’t wait to see what this machine can do.
Looks like the keyboard plate on the top comes off so you can see all of the components. There should be much easier to repair and upgrade your SSD. It’s going to be pricey, though.
It looks like the highest end with 32 gigabytes of RAM and one terabyte SSD with Reisen goes up to 27 99. But the surface laptop, 13 and a half stars at 999 and the 15 and starts at 11 99.
So what do you think of the new surface lineup for 20 99?
I think they are looking solid, the best lineup that they’ve had in a while. But I think the winner here is these surface projects.
This is the modern surface that I’ve been waiting for, but that 15-inch surface laptop three is calling my name. I’m very curious about the Amidi partnership and its performance. So let me know which is your favorite in the conversation below?
And which 1 that you’re thinking about picking up. If you want to see more on the dual-screen surfaces, the surface neo, and the surface duel.
Let me know in the comments and I will do a separate article. These look incredible and I’m sure that we will see some slight changes to these designs before they drop in late 2020.
