Now with USB-CTM, new Surface Pro 7 for Business adapts to the ways you work better than ever.
The whole world is going mobile – people are using devices wherever they find themselves, whether that is at work, in a café, in bed, or somewhere in between. Surface Pro 7 was designed for those who take this to the extreme, who need a computer that is ready to capture and build on their ideas as they hop from place to place and from city to city. It’s built for the entrepreneurial minded go-getter, who need a powerful laptop that adapts to their situation and allows them to do their best work in any environment.
Both Surface Pro 7 and Surface Go are characterized by their versatile design and how easy they are to take with you, but they were designed for different people who need different things. Surface Go’s 10.5” screen make it ideal to be shared by the whole family. It is perfect for browsing the internet, watching shows, listening to music, and doing light tasks. By contrast, Surface Pro 7 is a full-blown workhorse, designed to handle multiple complex tasks and programs at the same time. The larger 12.3” display, all day battery life8 and powerful processors make it a professional-grade laptop you won’t want to share.
Surface Pro 7 takes the innovation derived from the Surface Pro 6 and builds on it, giving customers more power with the latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and improved graphics. Other improvements include:
- Improved PixelSense™ display, now with True Color
- USB-C port for data transfer, charging and video out
- All-day battery life (see footnote below), with instant on and fast charging capabilities.
Surface pioneered and continues to lead the 2-in-1 market. While Surface Pro X appeals to customers eager for a new design as well as SMB and Enterprise Firstline customers, the classic Surface Pro form factor continues to receive incredibly high customer satisfaction – particularly among many of our commercial customers looking for consistency in form factor and port placement. We refined Surface Pro 7 to provide our customers the best experience on a product they know and appreciate.
No. Our connector is USB-C only, which supports most peripherals that our customers use.
Thunderbolt is primarily useful today for external GPU docks. We have not seen accessory makers adopt Thunderbolt broadly enough to justify the tradeoffs required to support it. We will continue to evaluate this based on customer feedback and ecosystem trends.
We have designed this generation of Surface devices to be twice as fast with a balance of performance, battery life, and great user experiences in a thin and light design. As a result of increased performance, overall battery life has been impacted, but we expect customers will continue to get a full day of use from their Surface, and faster charging when they need it.
Our retail partners, commercial partners, and customers themselves brought to our attention the potential of black – a color which still indicates power, professionalism, and quality. When we looked at the ecosystem and the products that exist today, we found there was an opportunity to bring this potential to life, and create products that had the performance to back, and the used materials to match, the quality indicated by the black color.
Generally black/color options will only be available on the i5/8/256 configuration and above.
We are continuing to invest in LTE across our portfolio and are still selling Surface Pro (5th gen) with LTE Advanced. Together with Surface Pro X and Surface Go this portfolio provides great options for customers who want the full functionality of a 2-in-one PC on the go.
As always, we will continue to listen to our customers and bring products to market based on their feedback. We have nothing more to share regarding LTE in our product line currently.
On the device itself, the serial number is located on the back of the device, underneath the kickstand below the Microsoft logomark. To access the serial number on the device, tilt the device over onto the display so you have a view of the base.
The power button is embedded near the top left corner of the camera side of the device. The device features “Instant on” and will turn on as soon as your finger leaves the power button.
The power button can instantly turn on your device when it’s off or even lock your device screen when it’s pressed during power on. Settings for the power button are configurable in :Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\System Settings.
Your Surface comes with a kickstand that allows you to prop up your device at any angle you would like. Simply place a finger in one of the two grooves on the bottom back of your device and pull out to open the kickstand. You can then adjust the kickstand to whatever angle you prefer or close it by pushing back down.
While this kickstand has been designed to last, avoid using excessive force when it is fully opened.
Windows Hello is a facial recognition feature which can be used to log people into their device as well as other locations such as the Windows Store by simply looking at the display. This technology relies on an infrared (IR) camera to identify the user’s face.
The Infrared (IR) camera has a field of view (FOV) of 60 degrees, which means that the device may not recognize the user when they are at an angle near or beyond 60 degrees from the camera. Users will need to train Hello to recognize them within this angle range, and at the angle which they are most likely to use the device.
The effective Field of View (FOV) may be reduced when the device is set up in a commercial environment. In some commercial installations Windows Hello may employ an additional security measure called “anti-spoofing.” This process uses the R GB camera in addition to the IR face recognition camera to prevent false facial recognition. Because the R GB camera’s Field of View is smaller than the IR camera’s FOV, the overall FOV is reduced to the lower dimension, i.e. This reduces the effective range at which the Windows Hello camera will recognize the user.37 degrees. This reduces the effective range at which the Windows Hello camera will recognize the user.
If you have an i7 the device has one fan. It is designed to work to keep the system running at a safe, efficient temperature. Users may hear the fan running at times depending on the workload. We designed the system to keep the acoustics as quiet as possible, while still maintaining high performance and comfortable touch temperatures.
If you have an i3 or i5 model, your device is passively cooled through our innovative cooling system.
A new hard reset procedure has been implemented: press and hold the Power button until the device shuts down and the Surface logo appears. This takes about 20-25 seconds. This method is designed to simplify the hard reset process, which used to require the user pressing and holding the Volume down button and the Power button at the same time, which was hard to remember and cumbersome to execute.
Note: the device may shut down at ~10 seconds, but users need to continue pressing the power button until they see the Surface logo appear.
Yes. Note that older controllers will not work.
New commercial SKUs will ship with Windows 10 19H1and support downgrading to downgrading to 1809, aka the "Windows 10 October 2018 Update" (known as "RS5" internally). The factory will subsequently ship devices with 19H2 (the anticipated Fall 2019 release) sometime in early 2020 per our usual timeline of factory switching over to the latest Fall release a few months after launch.
Yes, the i3 & i5 versions have fan-less options.
It uses a U processor.
The display measures 12.3” diagonally with a 3:2 ratio.
The display has a resolution of 2736 x 1824 pixels with a ppi of 267.
Surface Pro 7 has a brightness of 400 nits.
This device has a Mini Display Port (mDP), supporting mDP protocol 1.2 located above the charging and USB port on the right side of the device.
The Surface touchscreen has been coated to make it easier to clean. To avoid scratches we recommend using touch screen wipes or a soft, lint-free cloth to gently wipe the screen. You can dampen the cloth with water or an eyeglass cleaner, but don’t apply liquids directly to your Surface. Don’t use window cleaner or other chemical cleaners on your Surface. You don’t need to rub hard to remove fingerprints or oily spots.
Speaker volume can be adjusted using the embedded volume buttons next to the power button on the top left corner of the device. The left button will increase the volume, the right button will decrease the volume. One can also adjust the volume using the newest Surface Pro Signature Type Cover dedicated F4 (mute), F5 (vol -) and F6 (vol +) buttons.
If the type cover is attached the screen brightness can be adjusted through the dedicated F1 (brightness +) and F2 (brightness -) buttons. Without the Type Cover the screen brightness can be adjusted using the screen brightness button in the action center.
The device has one USB 3.0 and one USB-C port on the right side of the device plus one audio jack located on the left side of the device. Surface Connect is located on the right of the device and is capable of both charging and connecting to a Surface Dock (sold separately).
Yes, Surface Pro 7 has a microSD card slot in the back of the device below the kickstand.
The USB-C implementation on Fall 2019 products will not support Thunderbolt, however, we will have a story around supporting the experiences customers need (which has traditionally led them to request Thunderbolt support). These scenarios include supporting 2x 4k monitors at 60Hz, as well as high speed data transfer. As we will have a silicon diversity strategy, it would not have made sense to create inconsistency across our lineup by supporting an Intel-proprietary protocol, but the outcome to focus on is that our products will support the uses customers need most.
Yes, though the charging experience will vary depending on the wattage of the power supply. A 7W cell phone charger will provide a very different experience than a higher-wattage PSU aimed at a PC. Customers should use Surface Connect for the best charging experience.
USB has always focused on fast transfer speeds and power support for peripherals. Today, we are thinking about how we bring the best USB experiences to market across our portfolio for our customers. This means prioritizing: USB-C 3.1 Gen 2, which is capable of 10 Gbps data transfer speeds across our product portfolio 4K video out support for dual monitors. While Thunderbolt-enabled ports also deliver fast data transfer and video out support, what customers are often asking for with Thunderbolt is support for peripherals that add external GPU support to their existing device. We would prefer instead to get those customers into the right device that has the performance for the tasks they want to accomplish.
The Type Cover is an attachable accessory which can protect your screen while also providing a full size, backlight embedded keyboard with chiclet keys and a fully functional touchpad.
The device is equipped with a Precision Touchpad that is glass laminated, the same treatment as the award-winning Surface Book. It also comes with sub-pixel resolution for accurate pointer and active inadvertent actuation prevention mechanism to ensure a precise and controlled touchpad experience.
The keyboard fabric is made with Italian high-end Alcantara material with special stain-proof coating to improve its cleanability and wear over time. The improved Alcantara fabric allows users to clean the fabric cover very easily while preserving the soft and warm fabric feel.
Surface Signature Type Cover is crafted with premium materials chosen for their durability, beauty, and luxurious texture. The Alcantara® covered keyboard is treated with a high-performance polyurethane coating to resist spills. To keep your keyboard looking new, regularly wipe clean with a damp lint-free cloth and if needed, use with mild soap and warm water. Allow to dry before next use.
The bottom of the display has a magnetic groove for the type cover to attach to. Simply align the top strip of the type cover with the bottom of the display and allow them to magnetically attach. To detach simply hold the display in one hand while pulling gently downward on the bottom of the type cover.
We also ask that you avoid pinching the kickstand and touching it to the back of the device when possible.
In Windows 10, click on the Windows icon on the bottom left corner of your screen and select the toolbox icon (settings). Then choose Devices and click on the Bluetooth tab to see the list of Bluetooth devices available. Hold down the top button on the Surface Pen for seven seconds, until the light in the middle of the pen clip starts to flash. When the pen appears in the list of Bluetooth devices, tap or click it, and tap or click Pair.
Some users prefer a different type of pen tip. Users can purchase an optional pen tip kit online at Surface.com, or from a Microsoft retail store. The kit includes 4 additional tips with hardness of 2H, H, HB, and B. 2H is a harder, molded tip and suited for sketching and large/fast strokes. H (felt) is best for writing, great for large/fast strokes. HB (extruded medium) is good for writing/sketching medium to small strokes, and B (extruded soft) is for detailed sketches, small strokes. HB is the default tip shipped with the pen.
Using the Surface app found on all Surface devices (Start Menu->Surface), users can adjust the distribution of the pen pressure range. This does not actually change the pen pressure sensitivity.
The pen has a single button set in the flat area of the barrel as well as a tail button. The barrel button is used for invoking right click – press the button and tap on the screen to see the context menu.
The tail button can be used for three separate functions. The default tail button settings single press = open Ink Workspace, double press = Screen capture, press and hold = launch Sticky Note. Tail button actions can be changed in Settings>Devices>Pen and Windows Ink or click on the Ink Workspace icon in the system tray () and select “Pick a button” at the bottom of the Ink Workspace pane.
Surface Pro 7 battery design uses a rechargeable lithium-ion cell battery pack specifically designed to attain optimal battery life and power integrity conditions.
Up to 10.5 hours of battery life for typical device usage.
You can charge your Surface Pro 7 to 80 percent in under an hour.
We recommend using USB C power supplies capable of delivering more than 45W and no lower than 18W.
NOTE: Surface Pro 7 accepts chargers that operate down to 7.5W. In this case the device may go into “plugged in – not charging” scenarios that will drain the battery or otherwise fail to provide enough power to maintain operation.
A power supply or powered dock connected to the Surface Connect Port has preference over USB C ports.
No, Surface Pro 7 cannot be charged from a cable or PSU that has legacy (Type A) USB connectors even if converter adapters to USB-C are used.
Fast Charging is a feature available when using Surface Connect to charge Surface Pro 7 not USB-C. USB-C charging will vary based on equipment used and is generally not recommended.
Stereo speakers face the front and are located in the device bezel.
Surface Pro 7 will only have 2 front-facing Studio Mics which will enable the great experiences we've discussed such as Teams calls, dictation and other accessibility features in Office apps, Wake on Voice and more.
