If the reports are correct, Microsoft will be refreshing its ARM-powered Surface Pro X this year. The Surface Pro X will be updated to include Microsoft’s SQ2 processor, which will likely be based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G, according to Windows Central.
It is still unknown if the refreshed Surface Pro X will have 5G support, however, Qualcomm’s latest chip supports the option for Microsoft to include it.
Microsoft is also reportedly working on a new color variants for the updated Surface Pro X. The new color variant would see the device launch in the platinum usually featuring on the Intel-based Surface Pro line.

Microsoft launched the Surface Pro X in black in 2019, with a black Type Cover. However, it is possible that it will launch a variety of Type Cover colors for this new Surface Pro X to complement the new platinum variant.
There are no reported significant hardware or design changes apart from the new chip. So the device will most likely retain the design of the Pro X it launch in 2019. The changes to the processor could potentially improve the performance of the Surface Pro X. This would help it better cope with traditional emulated apps.
The refreshed Surface Pro X will likely be introduced alongside a rumored smaller 12.5-inch Surface Laptop. Microsoft will likely hold an October 2020 Surface event to introduce both devices.
