Microsoft announced its Surface Pro with LTE support earlier this year, and now the company is expected to introduce the device in December. Neowin reports that Microsoft’s Tim Golik, a Surface Pro program manager, disclosed a reveal date of December 1st for the LTE version of the Surface Pro during an Ignite session yesterday. The reveal date lines up with a scheduled appearance for Surface chief Panos Panay at Microsoft’s annual future Decoded event in London next month. Panay is expected to officially reveal the LTE Surface Pro at the event.
The Verge asked Microsoft to confirm the December 1st availability date, but the computer giant declined to confirm Golik’s comment. During the Ignite session, Golik also disclosed that the LTE chip inside the Surface Pro (a Snapdragon X16 modem) will run in every corner of the world. That means you can purchase a Surface Pro with LTE globally and expect to use data across the world.
Golik also didn’t respond to questions about a new Surface Book, simply asking the public to wait and see. The tech giant is expected to renew its Surface Book this fall, but ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley reported recently that the devices might not ship until early 2018.
