Even with Microsoft all set to host their annual launch event in New York City tomorrow, a new leak has surfaced online. A Vietnamese website (via the Indian Express) uploaded an unboxing video of the soon-to-be-launched Surface Pro 6. This is definitely a big development considering the launch is only couple of hours away.
There have been several leaks and rumours in the past, but this time the Surface Pro 6 leak comes in the form of a high-quality unboxing video posted to YouTube. In the video, the yet-to-be-launched Surface Pro 6 can be seen in all its glory. The video gives a good look at the Surface Pro 6 from all angles, including close-ups of its ports, display, and kickstand.
In terms of design, the device looks identical to the previous generation Surface Pro, but it gets slightly more curved corners. However, it still comes with a standard USB 3.1 Type A port and not the modern USB Type-C connector. Among all the Surface devices, only the Surface Book 2 comes with a USB Type-C port built in. Neither the Surface Laptop nor Surface Pro gets the USB Type-C port.
Based on the latest leak, the Surface Pro 6 is expected to feature a 12.3-inch PixelSense display, 8th generation Intel Core processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The 2-in-1 device will run on Windows 10 and will be equipped with Bluetooth 4.1.
Currently, there is no information available on the pricing of the Surface Pro 6. However, popular tipster Ronald Quandt has, in a tweet, predicted that the Surface Pro 6 will carry the same price as the Surface Pro, which was launched last year.
As mentioned earlier, Microsoft is holding an event on October 2nd in New York. The Redmond-based tech giant is expected to announce two new devices: the Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6. There’s also the possibility of seeing a new Surface Studio at Microsoft’s event tomorrow.
