The latest news on Surface

Today we're going to run down the various different devices and software we're expecting Microsoft to show at their big Surface event on Tuesday. The company is holding a media event tomorrow in New York City that is expected to focus on the Surface Laptop 2, Surface Pro 6, Surface Studio 2, and upcoming Windows 10 features. Leaks have hinted at what the event would bring, including some leaked images of the Microsoft Surface 2 Laptop in several colors. Maybe even two new colors, including Black.

Microsoft's event will take place on October 2 at 4PM ET (1:30am IST, October 3). In regards to the Surface Pro 6, the barebone basic model will reportedly come with just 4GB RAM, and an Intel Core m3 CPU.

Frankly, I'm not sure if such minimal changes warrant giving the name Surface Pro 6 to. Unfortunately, the device won't get USB Type-C ports will supposedly incorporate a mini-Display port, the Surface Connector, and the normal USB-A port. A new rumor has surfaced ahead of tomorrow's event, and the news is a bit unexpected. Having been criticized roundly in 2017 for offering a minor update to the Surface Pro 4 with the Surface Pro (2017), Microsoft is more-or-less doing exactly the same thing again, at least as far as the physical chassis and design are concerned. And the top-end models will feature 16GB of RAM and an Intel Core i7 processors.

Microsoft apparently plans to lower the entry price of the Surface Pro 6. However, the Surface Laptop 2 will be much improved over its predecessor in terms of specifications. We've seen Microsoft release a growing number of Surface accessories over the years, and we hope that Microsoft can still surprise us today. Like the Surface Laptop 2, the device will be available with the consumer version of Windows 10 in S-Mode. It looks like Microsoft has officially confirmed earlier reports that claimed that the new Surface lineup will be launched in a black colour variant. The original Surface Laptop shipped with an Alcantara keyboard, but it seems that not everyone is a fan of the material, and there are still some questions about its long-term durability.
