Microsoft Surface Pro
Expected for the end of the year, the new version of the Surface Pro will propose a new design.
But also some changes in terms of connectivity and ergonomics. The Type Cover keyboard, which also acts as protection, will now be magnetized on the entire surface.
As for Apple, Samsung it is by taking a look at the patents filed that we discover the news of Microsoft products.
First, they are rarer since the Redmond company remains a specialist software.
Second , the Pro Surface met his audience, and now expects the 7 th version of this computer hybrid, both mobile and tablet .
In this case, it is the Windows United site that has got its hands on the new design of the device, precisely through a patent filing. We discover a Surface Pro with rounded edges, the presence of a USB-C port and a new Type Cover keyboard. First there is the addition of magnets so that the ” Type Cover ” does not move when you do not use it. It would be the same system of magnets used to connect the keyboard to the screen. This will prevent the “protection” wanders when not in use, or that flakes in a bag back .
The disappearance of Surface Connect
Then there is this USB-C socket, and that’s all but a surprise. This type of connection has become the reference for its versatility. It can be used for charging the device, but also for sound, image or file transfer.
Moreover, allows Microsoft to limit the number of sockets on the sides thus to offer a Surface Pro less thick. Nevertheless, on the sketches, there is still a classic USB socket to accommodate the old devices and a Mini DisplayPort.
On the other hand, we note the absence of the connector Surface Connect used initially for the recharge. It was convenient on this device but we can imagine that USB-C will be used to recharge Surface Pro.
