System software and updates use significant storage space. Available storage is subject to change based on system software and updates and apps usage. 1 GB = 1 billion bytes. 1 TB = 1,000 GB. See Surface Storage for more details. 2 Up to 13 hours of battery life based on typical Surface device usage. Testing conducted by Microsoft in September 2019 using preproduction software and preproduction configurations of Surface Pro X. Testing consisted of full battery discharge with a mixture of active use and modern standby. The active use portion consists of (1) a web browsing test accessing 8 popular websites over multiple open tabs, (2) a productivity test utilizing Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook, and (3) a portion of time with the device in use with idle applications. All settings were default except screen brightness was set to 150nits with Auto-Brightness disabled. Wi-Fi was connected to a network. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage and other factors. 3 For more information on processor, see surface.com/business. 4 Service availability and performance subject to service provider’s network.

When releasing Surface Pro 6, we heard positive feedback regarding the choice to add a Matte Black color option. Surface Pro X is currently our ultra-premium Surface offering and was designed to stand out. Therefore, we chose Matte Black to provide an added layer of sleekness.
With the use of USB-C we can offer data, video and power in a single port that also accommodates the thin design of Surface Pro X. This was a design consideration for space saving and maximizing the internal area for battery and performance.
Type Covers are not compatible with Surface Pro X.
Surface Pro X and Surface Slim Pen are sold separately.
Surface Slim Pen is a fresh take on the iconic Surface Pen. It stores neatly in the Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard where it also charges wirelessly, so you always have your Pen ready and with you when you need it.

Surface Slim Pen was built to complete the experience with Surface Pro X. It is also sold standalone and compatible with Surface devices back to Surface Pro 3, as well as <Centaurus> and Surface Hub 2S.
Surface Pro X platform uses a rechargeable Lithium ion cell battery pack specifically designed to attain optimal battery life and power integrity conditions for the design.
Up to 13 hours of battery life for typical Surface device usage.
Charge your Surface Pro X 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 X 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 X cannot be charged from a cable or PSU that has legacy (Type A) USB connectors even if converter adapters to USB-C are used.
Because regulations on power use differ across global regions, Surface Pro X includes more adaptive global power tables, which allow devices to automatically set appropriate power and wireless channel and range settings based on their location. Previously, obtaining optimal wireless connectivity required manually changing channel and range settings.
No, X64 applications cannot be emulated at this time.
Apps ported to native ARM (x32 bit architecture) run with great CPU and outstanding GPU performance with up to two terra flops of graphic power.
Surface Pro X supports the full version of Office, including 32-bit plug-ins. When you download using click to run, the service detects you are on an ARM device.
In most cases, browsers will provide a comparable user experience run natively or in emulation mode. Edge and Firefox run natively and can be expected to provide the best performance under heavy loads. Internet Explorer and Chrome will run in emulation mode. However, most users are unlikely to notice any discernable difference during typical usage.
It will work in emulation mode (x86 emulated). There is no native ARM Chromium based Edge available at launch.
Mixed reality is not currently supported on ARM.
We will submit all new Surface products for Microsoft Managed Desktop Certification as soon as possible after they launch. We are not currently aware of any policies or product characteristics which would prevent at least iterative generations of products already certified from being included in the Microsoft Managed Desktop program.
No. Surface Pro X will be released without a standard Windows .ISO deployment image, which means it is not supported on the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) or operating system deployment methods using System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) aka ConfiMgr. Customers relying on image-based deployment should consider Surface Pro 7 while they continue to evaluate the right time to transition to the cloud.
Deploy Surface Pro X using Windows Autopilot.
Expected availability to be announced.
Intune is recommended but not required. Once deployed in Autopilot, you can join Surface Pro X devices to Azure AD or Active Directory (Hybrid Azure AD Join) where you will be able to manage the devices with Intune or co-manage them with SCCM, which will install the 32-bit x86 ConfigMgr client.
Yes, you can manage devices using an eSIM profile in Intune. For more information, refer to Configure eSIM cellular profiles in Intune.
The Qualcomm processor provides the ability to configure roaming aggressiveness settings that are useful in mobile situations where you are moving between access points.
When you are on battery, Windows operates wireless in power and moderate power saving mode. When you are plugged in, it operates wireless in high performance mode. This is configurable via powercfg commands.
