The device’s model number is 1876 just like its predecessors, more exactly the Surface Pro X SQ1 and Surface Pro X SQ2.

Taking into consideration all details, there seem to be no major changes made, the only difference may just be a slight change in the processor. 

In the Surface Pro X introduction from the official website, Redmond officials said the thinner Surface Pro today is using both Microsoft SQ 1 and SQ 2 chips.

The gadget also uses an ultra-fast LTE connection and has 2 USB-C ports and an almost full-screen 13-inch touchscreen.

Microsoft says that they are planning to start a free upgrade to Windows 11 by the end of 2021 and is expected to continue into 2022. 

Going by this information, it is safe to say that devices including the Surface Duo 2, Go3, and the new Pro 8, and even other notebook computers will be coming out.
