03 October, 2018

With apologies to those of you who don't appreciate puns, a lot of Microsoft product news surfaced this afternoon, so without further ado let's dive right in and take a look at the product announcements.

Microsoft has also created new Surface Pro Type Cover colours: black, blue, red and grey.

Microsoft's hosting its annual hardware event later today in NY, and that means we are expected to see the new Surface range and maybe a bunch of other things too. In addition to the updated colors, the devices, along with the Surface Studio, are expected to receive minor updates in the form of refreshed internals, such as the inclusion of the new eighth-gen quad-core Intel chips, an upgrade from the dual-core seventh-gen chips now present in the Laptop and the Pro. It features NVIDIA's next-generation Pascal graphics, includes a 2TB SSD and Microsoft claims that it's the fastest Surface ever. Yes, the two devices will be available in a new black variant, but the classic silver colour, which still has a lot of fans will remain available.

With Microsoft all set to host their annual launch event in New York City tomorrow, a new leak surfaced online.

The Surface Pro 6 reportedly retains the Core M option, but swaps in 8th generation cores up the stack as well. While Microsoft hasn't revealed full details for the laptop, the hardware appears to be identical, down to the port situation - which means another year without USB-C.

The Surface Pro 6 will start at $899 - and ship October 16. But what more? There's plenty of room for surprises, but don't expect the company to announce the Surface Phone just yet. Pre-orders for the device do not seem to be available as of writing.

The new Surface Pro bears a striking resemblance to previous Surface Pro models.

Prices for the Surface Pro 6 with a basic Core i5 processor will start from $899, although you'll need the (not really) optional $129 keyboard.

The company also unveiled its next-generation Windows software - called Windows 10 October 2018 Update - which has a focus on productivity. It is safe to say the devices have come a long way in 6 years.
