Will We See Microsoft Surface Book 3 Launch This Year? What Features We Expect To See
The tech company Microsoft did not update their most powerful 2-in-1 Surface Book 2 for 2018. This might be because the current Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 overshadowed the device. However, it seems that this year will change.
According to LaptopMag, it is about time for the company to upgrade the system or revamp it into the long-rumored Surface Book 3. The detachable design of the Surface Book provides a full-fledged laptop, complete with discrete graphics in the base. If you want a tablet, you just remove the 13.5-inch screen from the base.
If the company will join the trend, the Surface Book 3 could easily fit the 14-inch display in a similar or even more compact chassis. The 4K option for the device would also be great for creative professionals. The company can ditch the fulcrum hinge design from the current Surface Book and Surface Book 2. They can make a more Yoga-like convertible and the upcoming device thinner and lighter than its predecessor.
The upcoming device could support Thunderbolt 3 for the faster transfer speeds. You can connect to a wider array of Thunderbolt docking stations. If the company decides to ship towards the end of this year, it will likely have the GTX 2060 and 2050 cards and the much faster 10-nanometer Intel Ice Lake chip.
The release date of the upcoming device will be until the coming fall because it has been a very long time that its system has been upgraded. This will also give more time for the company to take advantage of newer processors and graphics. The pricing is expected to be in line with the current pricing for the current Surface Book 2. The 13-inch model starts at $1,499 ($1,299 on sale), the 13.5-inch version at $1,799, and the 15-inch unit at $2,299.
