With the larger size, the Surface Pro 9 5G features a 47.7Whr battery pack, which is larger than the 39.2Whr battery on the Surface Pro X.
Furthermore, the Surface Pro 9 5G model is based on an ARM chipset from Qualcomm rather than the Intel Alder Lake-U CPUs on the base Surface Pro 9 variant. It features the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 chipset that features four ARM Cortex X1 cores that run at 3GHz and four Cortex A78 cores running at 2.4GHz frequency. Thanks to this chipset, this device is also the first 5G-enabled product that Microsoft has released, which runs on its Windows operating system.
