Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Plus Specifications
This Tablet PC comes with a 12.3-inch PixelSense display same as the Surface Pro 7. The Surface Pro 7+ uses the latest 11th gen Intel Core processors more than doubling the performance of the previous generation. And it’s 3.5 times faster than Surface Pro with LTE Advanced from 2017.
With options for Core i3, i5, and i7 processors, Surface Pro 7+ is the first Surface Pro device to offer up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. The Surface Pro 7+ supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 for connectivity and there’s also an optional LTE Advanced feature. The Wi-Fi models will offer support for a microSDXC card while the LTE model will replace the expansion slot with a nanoSIM card slot.
Surface Pro 7+ with LTE Advanced is available with the fan-less Core i5 configuration and works with both eSIM and physical nano SIM. You get a single USB-C port, USB-A port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Surface Connect port.
The device is backed by a 50.4-watt hour battery that is the largest battery to date in a Surface Pro. Microsoft updated the TDM (Thermal Design Model), which allowed for a slightly larger battery to fit in the same amount of space as the Surface Pro 7.
The Surface Pro 7+ provides a removable storage solution that helps commercial organizations comply with specific data retention standards. There’s a dual studio microphone array along with dual speakers that are tuned with Dolby Audio. It comes with an 8MP camera on the back.
