The company is expected to announce the next generation of its flagship computing device at the event. It is expected to be called Microsoft Surface Pro 8 and succeed the Surface Pro 7. A new leak now indicates that the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 will have a 13-inch display with narrower bezels. The Microsoft Surface Go 3 tablet is also expected to be featured at the event.
A tipster posted details about the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 on Twitter. As can be seen from the post, Surface Pro 8 will have a 13-inch display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and narrow bezels.

In addition to the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 laptop, a new Surface Go 3 tablet is expected to be announced at Microsoft’s upcoming Surface event. Surface Go 3 appears to be the successor to Surface Go 2 and is expected to have a similar design to its predecessor, but with improved specifications. It should use an Intel SoC. Past leaks suggest that Microsoft Surface Go 3 may come in two different models and that both will use Intel chips. One model can be powered by an Intel Pentium Golf 6500Y processor paired with 4 GB of RAM and another is said to be powered by an Intel Core i3-10100Y processor paired with 8 GB of RAM. The Surface Go 3 should have a 10.5-inch full HD display and be supplied with a fold-out stand. The tablet should be made of a magnesium alloy.
