Surface and the future with Windows 11

Written By published June 25, 2021

Yesterday, our colleagues and friends on the Windows team took the digital stage to announce what’s next for Windows. And we, at Surface, couldn’t be more excited. Every new version of Windows has sparked innovation across the ecosystem, and Windows 11 will as well. From its new simplified look and feel, to its incredible new capabilities, Windows 11 will be a platform for innovations that help people to connect, create, and play.

From the beginning, we created Surface to be the device where the best of Microsoft comes together, powered by Windows. Over time, we’ve built a family of original hardware designs that bring powerful software experiences to life and allow people to be their creative and productive best, delivering against our company mission to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more. From collaboration in Microsoft Teams, to creation in Microsoft 365, to entertainment apps and gaming through Xbox Game Pass, Surface offers an assortment of powerful, lightweight, long lasting and versatile device options to deliver a premium experience across them all. With Windows, our family of devices is built for what you need today and flexible for what comes next with features like vibrant 3:2 PixelSense touchscreen displays, ink, touch and voice input, full size keyboards and trackpads, best-in-class HD cameras, Omnisonic speakers, and Studio Mics. As Windows leaps forward, Surface will too with new innovations and experiences we can’t wait to share later this year.

Here’s a quick look at some of the ways Windows 11 will come to life on Surface Pro X.
