Microsoft has unveiled a new Surface Pro 9 tablet to rival Apple's iPad.

Surface Pro 9 gives you the tablet flexibility, laptop performance and battery life you need to move through your day — all in one ultra-portable, 2-in-1 device. Now with powerful new processors, Surface Pro 9 comes with optional high-speed 5G connectivity and choice of new vibrant colors, Sapphire and Forest, so you can mix and match with Surface Pro Signature Keyboard.

Here's a look at some of the features as highlighted by Microsoft...

Surface Pro 9 is crafted with high-grade aluminum casing in a new set of beautiful, anodized colors. On one side you see the iconic built-in kickstand and on the other a gorgeous 13-inch PixelSense display. A Surface display is more than a sheet of glass. It’s a canvas, a journal, a notepad, an editing bay and a cinema screen. It’s a vibrant sheet of pixels that transforms into the combination of experiences that keep you informed, productive, entertained and connected.

With incredible levels of quality, performance and versatility, the edge-to-edge display on Surface Pro 9 is stunning. With up to 120Hz refresh rate and a wide range of colors, visual stories are true to life. Underneath the display is an HD camera, Omnisonic speakers, directional microphones and our custom G6 chip that takes inking to the next level with tactile signals. Combined with the new Ink Focus in Microsoft OneNote, or the new GoodNotes app coming in early 2023 to Windows 11, digital ink on the screen feels like writing with pen and paper.

Beneath the iconic exterior, Surface Pro has always been about performance. Surface Pro 9 offers a choice between processors – 12th Gen Intel Core processor built on the Intel Evo platform with Thunderbolt 4, or Microsoft SQ3 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon with 5G connectivity. In either case, you’re getting the same iconic Surface Pro form, great performance, all-day battery life and Secured-core capabilities. The choice comes down to the combination of scenarios that are most critical to you and how you work, create and connect.

The latest 12th Gen Intel Core processor offers incredible power and performance. Verified as an Intel Evo device, it’s ready for real-world multi-tasking, full desktop productivity, all-day battery life and intense workloads – with up to 50% more performance than Surface Pro 8. Thunderbolt 4 enables rapid data transfer, docking to multiple 4K displays, or supporting an eGPU set-up.

The Microsoft SQ3 processor provides fast 5G connectivity, and ultra-long battery life – up to 19 hours. Additionally, it unlocks new AI features made possible through an entirely new Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that transforms how you connect with the people in your life. Capable of more than 15 trillion calculations per second, the NPU in Surface Pro 9 drives new experiences with Windows Studio effects.
