Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Price & Specs Leaked In eBay Listing
A leaked prototype of the unreleased Surface Pro 8 has popped up on eBay, revealing the likely price and specifications of the Microsoft tablet.
The eBay listing appears to show a Surface Pro 8 model on sale for $1300 ($A1810) with a 12.3’’ display, 32GB of RAM and 1TB SSD.
The model is also running on an 11th-gen Tiger Lake Core i7-1165G7 – however the seller has not indicated whether the prototype notebook has the promised Intel Iris Xe graphics.
“Yes, you read the title right. Up for sale is a Surface Pro 8 engineering model, it has ES version of 11th gen i7-1165G7 processor, 32GB ram at 4267Mhz(Pro 7 maxed out at 16GB) and 1TB Samsung SSD,” the seller wrote on the listing.
“Perfectly working, but as it is unreleased do backup driver yourself before restoring otherwise you cannot find it online. Come with a blue type cover.”
The overall design of the Surface Pro 8 appears to be strikingly similar to the Surface Pro 7, and if the listing is accurate, most of the feature upgrades will be internal.
The seller’s location is in Seattle, Washington – the same state where Microsoft’s HQ is based – and the product has been described as ‘used’.
This could mean the item, if it is a genuine Surface Pro 8, could potentially be a used model from one of Microsoft’s own internal staffers.
Microsoft is yet to announce the release of the Surface Pro 8 but analysts predict it could be before the end of the year.
