Upcoming Surface Dock 3 will ditch the proprietary connector


In 2023, it’s amazing that some companies are still opting to use proprietary connectors instead of more universal ones (we’re looking at you, Apple). But the good news is that if you use Microsoft’s Surface Dock, then the upcoming third-gen model might be one to keep an eye out for, especially if the leaks are accurate.

According to a report from Windows Central, they spotted a listing on eBay for the Surface Dock 3 which hasn’t been officially announced yet. One of the interesting things about the listing is that Microsoft appears to have ditched the use of their proprietary Surface Connect cable with a Thunderbolt 4 one.

This means that the Surface Dock 3 should be compatible with more devices out there. Also, the listing shared some images of the device which shows off a slimmer design over the Surface Dock 2. As for its ports, we’re looking at a USB-A and USB-C port on the front, and on the back there are two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, an ethernet port, and a DC connector.

Microsoft hasn’t officially announced the Surface Dock 3 yet, but assuming that this leak is accurate, it looks like an announcement from the Redmond company shouldn’t be too far behind.
