An engineering sample of a Microsoft Surface Pro 8 unit was recently spotted on via eBay. Since then, the device has been purchased by Redditor Unreliable_noob, who has even posted images of the yet to be released device.
According to an MSPowerUser report, the prototype device was barely distinguishable from the company’s previously launched Surface Pro 7. Although, the similarities were mostly in design as the internals received a refresh, with the new Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, along with 32GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage. The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 also lacks a Thunderbolt 3 port but houses a larger 50,030mWh battery in comparison to the 45,000mWh on the Surface Pro 7.

While the device is still a prototype engineering sample and the company would likely still makes tweaks in its design and other aspects, it seems highly unlikely that the upcoming generation of Surface Pro will tablet will feature a new bezel less design on the front. However, since this is just a prototype one should take the specs and design with a pinch of salt for now, and wait for more officially announced details that should arrive soon. So stay tuned for more updates.
