If you are a fan of Microsoft’s Surface Pro X tablet, then you might be interested to learn that Microsoft has since announced that they are giving the tablet a bit of an upgrade. The upgrade will see Microsoft introduce an updated SQ2 processor along with a new platinum color finish that has been found on other Microsoft Surface devices.
For those unfamiliar, the SQ2 processor was developed alongside Qualcomm where it’s essentially a customized version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 5G, except that there is no 5G support. According to Microsoft, the use of the new SQ2 processor is expected to introduce battery gains where it will last up to 15 hours on a single charge, although your mileage may vary depending on what you do with it.
Apart from the new chipset and new color option, the rest of the tablet remains the same. This means that we can expect the 13-inch PixelSense display with its 2880×1920 resolution, support for up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. The nano SIM port will still be kept meaning that you can insert a SIM card and give it LTE connectivity.
There will be two USB-C ports for those who want to attach accessories and peripherals, and a removable SSD drive. The new Surface Pro X with the SQ2 processor will start at $1,499, but there are cheaper options that will use the SQ1 processor and less RAM at $999.
