Microsoft Announces Surface Pro 7+ for Business - Thurrott.com

Microsoft's Surface Pro 7+ has LTE, new CPUs and a bigger battery

The new Surface Pro 7 Plus is only available to businesses and schools, Microsoft says.

"As different parts of the world plan for their returns to the office or classroom or rethink what hybrid and satellite environments mean for their organizations, Surface Hub will be there to ease that transition, helping to bridge the digital and physical divide", Seiler says.

The display is the same 12.3-inch PixelSense display and you still get the single USB-C port + USB-A port + 3.5mm headphone jack, and Surface Connect port. One big upgrade that the Surface Pro 7 Plus boasts of is a removable SSD. Microsoft debuted the concept of removable SSD on the Surface Pro X tablet.

Another area where the Surface Pro 7+ has improved is battery life.

Like other Surface Pro models, the Surface Pro 7 Plus is a thin tablet that can dock into Microsoft's Type Cover to turn it into a laptop. Both support 1080p resolution, up from the standard 720p resolution commonly found on many laptops.

For the first time in the almost nine-year history of the Windows-powered hybrid computer family, Microsoft has taken the wraps off a Plus-branded version of an existing Surface model.

Wi-Fi models will offer support for a microSDXC card while the LTE model simply replaces the expansion slot in favor of a nanoSIM card slot. The company is offering Core i5 and i7 processor options as well. This one includes a Core i5 processor, Iris Xe graphics, and increased memory and storage.

Until something like that sees daylight, enterprise and education customers will be happy to know the Surface Pro 7 Plus is slated for a commercial U.S. debut as early as January 15 (this Friday) starting at a fairly reasonable $899 price. It will eventually arrive to customers in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, and throughout most of Europe.
