When the first Surface Book laptop was released in 2015, many were impressed by its specs and features. Since then, it has become one of the leaders in the high-end laptop market alongside Apple's MacBook. Because of this impression, many are already looking forward to the release of the third installment in the Microsoft Surface Book series.
The first version of Surface Book was a hit due to its looks, performance, and overall user experience. It runs with an Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M 2GB GPU. This gives users increased speed and graphics performance that are needed for engineering, design, and other types of work.
The Surface comes with a detachable screen that could turn it into an instant tablet. It easily became a favorite because of its ultimate 2-in-1 design. Hence, the second release of a new model in 2016 was also patronized by many despite the small difference in specs and features.
Technology enthusiasts are speculating about what Microsoft Surface Book 3 can offer. According to reports, the new model will feature an Intel Skylake-E processor (i9), which is one of the most advanced Intel processors. It will also use an improved camera with 16 megapixels and high full-HD recording.
Its NVIDIA high-end graphics card will improve battery life and enhance its Surface Pen (Stylus). It will be compatible with the AR headset as well as cheaper VR Windows-compatible headsets. The display will switch to a standard 4K resolution with 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. It will be available in 16-inch and 15-inch screen since Microsoft is going to eliminate its current 13.5-inch option.
The release date of Microsoft Surface Book 3 is speculated to be in October 2018. This is based on the pattern of its previous releases since its debut in October 2015 and the second release in October 2016. As of this writing, Microsoft has not announced any official statement yet about its plan for a Surface Book 3, thus users should take this news with a grain of salt.
