Surface Pro 6 leak shows little change from last year's model

Surface Pro 6 leak shows little change from last year's model
If you've been waiting for the Surface Pro 6 to be unveiled next week, you could end up disappointed. Based on images taken from a Vietnamese hands-on with the tablet, it appears that the Surface Pro 6 is going to look very much like last year's model. And that also means that the slate will come sans a USB-C port. It will feature a 3.5mm port for headphones, a full-size USB port, a mini Display port and a port for the proprietary Surface Connector.

The Surface Pro 6 will again feature a 12.3-inch display carrying a resolution of 2736 x 1824. The processor inside the unit seen in these images is an 8th Generation Intel Core i5, providing more power and less energy consumption than seen with last year's model. The new unit has a slight aesthetic change as the corners are more rounded, making the Surface Pro 6 easier to hold. 8GB of RAM is inside along with 128GB of native storage. Windows 10 is pre-installed and the tablet is equipped with Bluetooth 4.1.

bluetooth 5 with aptX and LDAC support would have been nice.

And at least 1 Thunderbolt 3 port (instead of mDP)

I would have been, but let's be honest, it's not gonna happen.

Worst thing is that the mini display port should have been an USB-C. The bezels are actually good for a tablet device, specially with border gestures. I really really still hope that those leaks including the Surface Laptop were fake simply because of the port, it is really dumb to keep releasing the same array of ports when the Surface Book and Go already have USB-C.

New Core M edition would be much appreciated. i5 and i7 versions are nice, but I would much rather have a silent slower tablet, than powerful, throttling and noisy one.

Intel recently launched the m3 8100Y, I guess MS will use it for the basic version.

Yeah, I feel like they will use this SOC in fanless version as well. It would make sense and it would be a really nice speed bump.

No need to change a successful design that others copy. However USB-C is needed at this point, it's been around too long to ignore.

I call it fake, look closely it says Windows 10 Home......

To be honest, USB-C is a stupid implementation, I really wonder how did anyone accept it. It is very fragile and flimsy, USB-A is vastly superior especially for a laptop.

I have USB-C on 3 phones, MP3 player, 2 laptops and not once I damaged anything while handling a device. USB-C is great because it can be really universal. One cable for power, USB hub and video output - best thing ever happened to tablets and laptops. One universal docking port to rule them all. Goodbye stupid proprietary HP, Dell, Lenovo docks that you can use only with not just one brand but only a handful of models. ;)
