Microsoft Surface Pro 6 tablet unboxing hands-on emerges ahead of launch date

Microsoft’s forthcoming Surface Pro 6 has a schedule launch date on Oct. 2, but an new unboxing video has emerged online suggesting that the tablet won’t come with USB-C connectors.

Microsoft’s upcoming Surface Pro 6 computing tablet is scheduled to be launched on October 2nd of this year. But it appears like review units of the device were sent ahead of the official release date, as content creator Nguyễn Đức on posted an unboxing hands-on video of the Surface Pro 6 on YouTube.

Looking at the overall aesthetic design revamps, the Redmond-headquartered software giant has added a slightly more rounded corners on the Microsoft Surface Pro 6. While the kick stand and detachable keyboard on the upcoming Surface Pro 6 remained the same as its predecessor.

The Surface Pro 6 model featured in the unboxing hands-on video is powered by Intel’s gen 8 Core i5-8250U ULV CPU processor alongside an 8GB worth of RAM and 128 GB on-board storage. But there will also be i7-8550U models with 256GB storage variant. Unfortunately, the new Surface Pro 6 will reportedly not be shipped with USB-C connectors.

However, the comments on the YouTube video were quick to point out that this is most likely fake, because Microsoft will surely be shipping the Surface Pro 6 with USB-C connectors. Additionally, the design looks to be the same from the 2017 Surface model. While these arguments are quite on point, we only have less than a week before Microsoft officially confirms every bit of a detail about the Surface Pro 6.
