No point waiting for an already long overdue Surface Book redesign this holiday season, according to reputable analysts and journalists, but another small Surface Pro revision effort should make its commercial debut as soon as December 1.

As a matter of fact, Redmond was pretty straightforward about the eventual launch of a new Surface Pro with "LTE Advanced later this year" back when it announced more specific availability details for versions limited to Wi-Fi. It was confirmed during its Ignite 2017 conference that the LTE Surface Pro is going to be released on December 1st. A company spokesperson announced the information, stating that that the devices were available on Microsoft's product page, however there is now no listing on the site. The launch date lines up with a scheduled appearance for Surface chief Panos Panay at Microsoft's annual Future Decoded event in London next month.

When it comes to memory and storage, the option get a little wider, with the LTE Surface Pro expected to come with either 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage or 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
