The new Surface Pro with OLED display and ARM processors is now official

Following the announcement of the new Surface Laptop with ARM processors, Microsoft unwrapped the next-gen Surface Pro, which is now called just "Surface Pro" or "Copilot Plus Surface Pro" (the website confusingly calls it "11th edition"). It brings quite a lot of substantial changes to Microsoft's signature PCs, such as an OLED display, a wireless keyboard cover, a 1440p camera, optional 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 7, and more.

To begin with, Surface fans finally have a device with OLED displays. The new Surface Pro has a 13-inch PixelSense Flow OLED display with a 1M:1 contrast ratio, 120Hz, a 2,880 x 1,920 pixels resolution, and Gorilla Glass 5. However, there are also variants with regular IPS displays. In fact, you will have to settle for a standard LCD panel if you want the basic $999 configuration—the cheapest model with an OLED display will set you back $1,499.

Processor options include either the Snapdragon X Plus or Snapdragon X Elite, and you get to choose between 16GB and 32GB of RAM. According to Microsoft, these chips make the new Surface Pro 90% faster than the previous generation. As for storage, Microsoft lets you spec the new Surface Pro with a removable SSD with 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of capacity.

Connectivity-wise, the new Surface Pro supports Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.4. A configuration with 5G will be available later in 2024.

Another important change is the brand-new Surface Pro Flex Keyboard, which now works wirelessly, allowing you to place it separately from the tablet wherever convenient. It also features extra layers of carbon fiber for stability and durability and a new customizable haptic touchpad. Just like the regular keyboard for the Surface Pro, it still has integrated pen storage, which doubles as a charger.

The new Surface Pro is available in four colors: Black, Platinum, Dune (gold), and Sapphire (Blue). You can already preorder one in the Microsoft Store. Prices start a $999 for the LCD variant and $1,499 for the OLED variant.

Update: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that the new Surface Pro has a 4K webcam. The webcam is actually an ultra-wide QHD (1440p) one.
