Microsoft Surface Pro 6 has been leaked, this time in a high-quality unboxing video posted to YouTube. The unboxing video was uploaded by a Vietnamese website, which claims to have access to an unreleased Surface Pro 6, an this rumoured to launch on October 2 at an event in New York City.
In the video, we can see the yet-to-be-launched Surface Pro 6 in all its full glory. The video gives a good look at the Surface Pro 6 from all angles, including closeups of its ports, the display, and the kickstand. The device looks exactly like the previous generation Surface Pro in terms of the design language, but with slightly more curved corners.
Unfortunately, the device still comes with a standard USB 3.1 Type A port and not the modern USB Type-C connector. Which means users have no choice but to purchase an expensive USB Type-C dongle. 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 come with a USB Type-C port.
The Surface Pro 6 is expected to feature a 12.3-inch PixelSense display (2716 x 1824), 8th generation Intel Core processors, 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The 2-in-1 will run on Windows 10 and is also equipped with Bluetooth 4.1. At the moment, there is no information available on the pricing of the Surface Pro 6. But popular tipster Ronald Quandt believes the Surface Pro 6 will carry the same price as the Surface Pro, which was launched last year.
About Microsoft’s hardware event on Oct 2: expect Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2. At the same prices as before, with updated hardware. And likely nothing else.
