It will start rolling out on October 5, which is another great reason to get excited about the Microsoft Surface 2021 event. The highlight of the show could well be the unveiling of the long-awaited Microsoft Surface Pro 8. This is all we expect from the event.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8

Previous reports had stated that the Surface Pro 8 would ship without USB-A ports. Now, the latest leak revealed that the next product could have a combination of USB-C and Thunderbolt on the device. Therefore, the versatility of the device is improved. Surface Pro 8 could come equipped with up to two Thunderbolt ports. The addition of the Thunderbolt port would be a huge boost for the Surface Pro line.

Also, the upcoming Surface Pro 8 could have dual Thunderbolt interfaces and replaceable SSDs that we've seen. formerly in the Surface Pro X and Surface Laptop line. Also, the device is expected to run Windows 11 out of the box.

Microsoft is expected to announce the sequel to its Surface Pro X. The first-gen product launched in 2019 and is in dire need of an update. Recently, the Energy Star Certification was issued for a new Surface Pro X device, with a "Market Availability Date" of September 7, 2021. Therefore, we can speculate that Microsoft will launch a new Surface Pro X on its tonight's event.

The smaller and more compact Surface Go needs to be updated, too. Microsoft's 10-inch tablet is expected to arrive at the Surface event. The Surface Go series is not meant to compete with a full operating system that runs on a more robust laptop, as it aims to compete with the best Chromebooks on the market. Compared to the latter, the Microsoft Surface Go line runs a full operating system with the presence of Windows 10.
