The Surface Pro with LTE Advanced is the latest hybrid tablet/laptop in the Surface Pro range. Microsoft first unveiled the new device in May but stopped short of announcing an official launch date. However, Microsoft hardware chief Mr. Panay has now confirmed that the Surface Pro LTE will be available on December 1, 2017 for business users.

Speaking at the Future Decoded event in London, Mr. Panay confirmed the release date after there was speculation that Microsoft already revealed a December launch for the Surface Pro LTE at an Ignite session. The Microsoft chief also announced a November 13 launch for the 13-inch Surface Book 2 at the event.Surface Pro LTE

The new Surface Pro with LTE Advanced will come in two models. The entry-level model is expected to have 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD storage. The premium model will feature 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. Both Surface Pro LTE models will include an Intel Core i5 CPU. They will retail for $1,149 and $1,449, respectively.

However, the Surface Pro LTE’s Cat 9 modem is probably its most exciting specification, ensuring the Surface Pro with LTE Advanced is among the fastest LTE laptops due to its higher bandwidth that can provide download speeds up to 450Mbps, which would outclass devices with Cat 6 modems.

Advanced internet connectivity is the what the Surface Pro LTE is primarily about and will be one of the few devices that can utilize EE’s Cat 9 network when it launches this December.
