Surface leaks show ARM-based Surface 7 with narrow bezels, Laptop 3 without Alcantara

Microsoft's big Surface launch event is just days away at this point, and FrAndroid says it has the scoop. A few things that we're expecting to see is the Surface Pro 7, a Snapdragon-powered Surface tablet, and Surface Laptop 3 in 13.5- and 15-inch flavors. Today's report shares some details on those devices.

According to the report, Surface 'Campus', which it calls Surface 7, will be "almost borderless". Apparently, it will stray from the Surface trend of large bezels, although the top and bottom bezels will still be a bit larger. The site compared it to an iPad Pro. There's no USB Type-A port, similar to a Surface Go, and it will come with 4G LTE. This would be the model that comes with the Snapdragon 8cx.

The Intel Surface Pro 7, however, won't see any meaningful design changes. The only real change will be that it has a USB Type-C port instead of a Mini DisplayPort. This part really isn't surprising at all.

Finally, the Surface Laptop 3 should see some design changes, as the whole Laptop lineup is seeing an overhaul. It will now come with AMD processors, and for the first time, there will be a 15-inch model. Apparently, it won't just add one USB Type-C port, but two. It also might ditch Alcantara fabric on the palm rest, or at least one of the models will.

There are new colors on the way, although the report wasn't clear on what those colors will actually be for. We'll see Yellow Sandstone, Glacier Blue, and Red Poppy in either the new Type Covers, the new Surface Laptops, or both.

Of course, we only have to wait a few days before we can confirm any of these rumors. The big reveal will be if Microsoft wants to show off its Centaurus dual-screen PC, although that wouldn't be ready for sale until next year anyway.
