Microsoft Surface Pro 9 with ARM, 5G passes through FCC ahead of the October event

Microsoft Surface Pro 9 Comes In October With Windows 11 Version 22H2, File Explorer Tabs, Improved Security, WiFi 6, 5G Chip, ARM + Intel Processor! According to an FCC certification filing, the next-generation Surface Pro has been rumored for some time and is headed for an imminent launch.

For those unaware, the FCC is the Federal Communications Commission of the United States and they certify products for consumers in the country. The product has been approved by the United States government for its electromagnetic interference and other features.

According to FCC listing C3K1997, the Surface Pro 9 could offer built-in 5G connectivity, use Bluetooth 5, and offer Wi-Fi 6. The listing clearly mentions support for "multi-band 5G NR, 802.11b/g/n/ax". WLAN”, confirms our speculation that the company's next-gen hardware will feature 5G technology.

It's also worth noting that according to this FCC filing, the Surface Pro 9 will be shipping with an ARM processor. The filing includes references to Qualcomm's Smart Transmit 3.0 aimed at expanding 5G coverage and improving uplink speeds. It also optimizes broadcasting across cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antennas.

Surface Pro 9 – a new powerhouse

All of these features should result in better battery, wireless, and overall system performance compared to the previous Surface Pro, especially the Surface Pro X lineup. The Surface Pro 9 is expected to be announced in October, though an official launch date is yet to be announced. The device is expected to pack 128GB of storage (both 5G and WiFi only will be offered). This will include either 8GB or 16GB of RAM and 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of storage. A powerful variant of the Surface Pro 9 is also expected to arrive with 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.

We don't know if any significant changes will be made to the screen size or the overall design of the lineup. It's worth noting that the information is based on listings we've seen and should be taken with a pinch of salt until the product line is confirmed by Microsoft. There is a possibility that the device we are talking about is Surface Pro X and not Surface Pro 8. Let's keep our fingers crossed that it won't take long for us to wait to see the next generation of hardware.
