Microsoft will reportedly unveil a new Windows 10-powered Microsoft Surface Pro next Monday in Shanghai, but you won’t have to wait a moment longer to see what it will look like.

Well-known leaker Evan Blass, who also spotted a mysterious Nokia phone in an ad earlier this week, posted a number of photos of the alleged Surface 4 successor yesterday, which he says will simply be called the “Surface Pro.”

Aside from some new pen and keyboard colors, the design looks very similar to its 2-in-1 predecessor, which disappointingly means no USB-C port.

We suspect the biggest changes to come in the form of upgraded internals. If that means increasing battery life by a few hours, then we can forget about its aging design.

Come back Tuesday for our complete coverage of the Surface Pro 4 successor. Until then, check out a full gallery of photos over at VentureBeat.
