In January 2021, a public FCC filing for the Surface Pro 8 suggested an announcement was imminent. This of course did not turn out to be true.

The Surface Pro 8 has not been the only Microsoft product to launch in 2021, with October 21st being the release date for the Surface Duo 2, the brand's latest foldable phone.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Pre-Order Date

The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 was up for pre-order immediately after the conclusion of their September 22 event, and the device will be fully released on 28th October 2021 in the UK, and has been available in the USA since October 5th.

This also lines up with previous years, as pre-orders for the Surface Pro 7 first went live following the Microsoft event on October 2.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Price

Surface Pro pricing has remained fairly consistent since its launch, and this in part continues with the Surface Pro 8, apart from the fact the base model has had a bit of a price hike.
