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​ 4 Service availability and performance subject to service provider’s network.

Frequently Asked Questions


  • Who is the Surface Pro X designed for?

    Surface Pro X is built from the ground up for connected productivity and will offer a productivity and mobility profile that pairs well in the commercial space.

    Organizations already using modern management, security, and productivity solutions (Autopilot, Intune, Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, Bitlocker, Microsoft Office 365) are well positioned to take advantage of the unique performance features in Surface Pro X. Customers who have modernized and simplified their line of business apps, integrated Microsoft store (UWP) apps, or utilize remote desktop solutions also stand to benefit. Examples include:

    • High end businesses. Mobile dominant, tech forward businesses across high end retail, high end hospitality and mobile sales reps will be delighted by its ultra-portability and graphic performance.
    • High-end professional services. High-end retail banking, professional services (legal, consulting), and the medical/healthcare industry are on the verge of adopting modern, cloud-based technologies but as of now they most likely require more robust legacy security features and physical dTPM encryption than Surface Pro X can offer today.
    • Education. Surface Pro X is well suited for the educational sector and higher education.

    With Windows Autopilot as the recommended deployment option, Surface Pro X devices are well suited for small and medium sized businesses without large scale on-premises infrastructure.

  • What processor runs on Surface Pro X?

    Surface Pro X features a custom processor designed by Qualcomm and Microsoft, which runs the Windows on ARM OS (Cobalt).

  • Is there a traditional (Intel/AMD) x64 CPU version of Surface Pro X?

    No, Only an ARM version.

  • Is there a version without LTE support?

    No. Surface Pro X is designed to be an always on and always connected PC. All models support LTE connectivity.

  • Does Surface Pro X have physical SIM tray, eSIM, or both?

    Surface Pro X has both a physical tray for nano SIM and eSIM, leveraging the best of our LTE story.

  • Does Surface Pro X have firmware based TPM?

    Yes, Surface Pro X has a firmware TPM while Harper, Surface Laptop 3 13” and Surface Laptop 3 15” all have a discrete TPM. BitLocker will still be possible with both, however, some industries desiring or requiring physical drive encryption will be more likely to choose Harper as their preferred 2-in-1.

  • What are the key differences between Surface Pro X and past Surface Pro iterations?

    Surface Pro X is an evolution of the classic Surface Pro form factor.

    It is the thinnest, lightest, most mobile Surface 2-in-1 yet with 13” edge-to-edge PixelSense™ display & LTE connectivity.

    With its unique processor, Surface Pro X is able to offer powerful performance and always-on 4G connectivity in a thin design.

  • Why didn’t Microsoft use Intel in Surface Pro X?

Common Questions

  • How do I access the SIM card?

    To open SIM compartment

    1. Using the included SIM Card access tool insert the pin in the hole for the SIM compartment and remove the SIM cover door, as shown in Figure 1.
    2. Slide a nano sim into the SIM slot. It’s normal to see the SIM cover door ejector pin coming a few millimeters out of the device at a slight angle
    3. Replace the SIM cover door by inserting the back side at an angle in the slot and gently pressing the door fully down. The door is magnetically held and will align itself into position once depressed

  • Is the removable SSD user replaceable?

    This is not supported. The SSD should be replaced only by a skilled technician following Microsoft instructions.

  • Can I buy or upgrade the SSD?

    Third party SSDs are not supported. They may work but require special configuration.

    Microsoft SSDs have been tested and are guaranteed to meet performance, emissions, and thermal specifications.

  • Why did Microsoft decide to support USB-C on Surface Pro X? Why didn’t Microsoft include any other port options?

    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.

However, most users are unlikely to notice any discernable difference during typical usage.

  • What about the new Chromium based Edge?

    It will work in emulation mode (x86 emulated). There is no native ARM Chromium based Edge available at launch.
