Microsoft has confirmed the schedule to be October 12, 7:30 IST – for its annual fall Surface hardware event. The tech giant sent invitations for the October 12 event on Thursday where it will unveil the new Surface hardware products.
- Microsoft is likely to offer a Surface Pro 9 in two variants – Arm or Intel Processors, which could possibly mean the discontinuation of the Surface Pro X line up.
- Surface Pro is reported to come in two new colours – Green and Light Blue.
- It could also announce the Surface Laptop 5 and Surface Studio 3 at the event.
- The Surface Studio 3 will be aimed at enthusiasts and designers. It will be interesting to see how Microsoft supercharges its hero product, which hasn’t got a major refresh for years.
- The original model made its debut in late 2016 and the second one came out in late 2018. Accessories for the Surface Studio 3, including a Surface Pen, Mouse, and Keyboard with functionality-upgraded keys were recently leaked, hinting at the launch of the creative-focused desktop computer.
- Microsoft still needs to work a lot on perfecting Windows experiences on devices that are powered by ARM-based chips. The company is heavily dependent on Qualcomm, the mobile chipmaker bringing ARM processors to PC.
