Surface Pro 7, Surface Laptop 3, and ARM-based Surface shown off in renders

Microsoft is set to unveil new Surface devices in less than two days, and with some leaked images already on the internet, famous leakster Evan Blass has gone ahead and revealed the design of three of the upcoming devices. In a series of tweets, Blass shows off the Surface Pro 7, both size variants of the Surface Laptop 3, and the awaited ARM-powered Surface.

The tweets can't be shared as Blass's profile is set to private, but we've compiled the images below. They confirm that the Surface Pro 7 will indeed retain a similar design language to previous iterations of the hardware, including the thick all-around bezels and replace the DisplayPort with a USB Type-C port. Otherwise, the design looks the same.

The Surface Laptop 3 also looks a lot like previous versions of the hardware, with the only visible change being that the base around the keyboard is no longer covered in Alcantara. Instead, the device is all metal, as most premium devices are. The renders don't show both sides of the device, so there's no confirmation on the number of ports aside from the Surface Connect port. Both the 13-inch and 15-inch models look very similar, though there's noticeably less space around the trackpad on the 13-inch model.

Finally, there's the long-awaited ARM-powered Surface, which, as previously suggested, features thinner bezels than those on the Pro 7. This is the most interesting of the devices here, sporting a significantly different design which, in addition to thinner bezels, also has rounded edges instead of the flat lines seen in most Surface devices.

The ARM-powered Surface seems to have a Surface Connect port on the right side, in addition to two USB Type-C ports on the left. Also interesting is that the keyboard cover for this device seems to have a space to hold a Surface Pen when the device is closed, which might be a preferable alternative to the magnet lock on other Surface devices. The pen itself also sports a different design from the current Surface Pen.

Aside from the ones seen in images, Blass mentions the existence of a dual-screen Surface device, of which pictures aren't available. This is likely one of the most awaited devices for this event, but it looks like we'll have to wait a while longer to know more about it.
