Microsoft announced the launch of “Surface Pro LTE Advanced”

By Tomokazu Kizawa - Last updated: Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Microsoft held a “future Decorded” event in London. released a model with LTE module on Surface Pro. The product name is Surface Pro LTE Advanced.

Surface Pro LTE Advanced will be released in December. The next day’s announcement was Japan. The product reservation starts on November 1.The release date is December 8.

The LTE communication module corresponds to “UE Category 9”.The SIM slot is located under Surface Pro’s microSD memory card slot. LTE communication speed can 450Mbps the maximum communication speed. Most of the devices used in the past are “UE Category 6” and the maximum communication speed was 300Mbps. The LTE band has 20 bands.
It also supports carrier aggregation.

LTE modem chip employs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon x16.The maximum spec for a single modem chip can be 1gbps.
There are two kinds of LTE antennas, and we are waiting in low power when we are not communicating normally. Communicate with full power at the time of consultation such as e-mail.

Model will be released two species.

The product lineup only has a core i5 processor. Processor does not exist Core i7 and core M3. Core i7 is equipped with an air-cooled fan. Surface Pro LTE advanced includes an LTE module where air-cooled fans enter. Perhaps, because the air-cooled fan and the LTE module cannot be put at the same time, I think that there is no Core i7 model.

This announcement is for sale only for corporations. There was no release announcement for the consuer market. Previously, Microsoft was launching Surface 3 with LTE modules for the private market. The communication carrier in the Japan is SoftBank Mobile. I expect Microsoft to launch surface Pro LTE advanced for the consuer market.
