Apparently, October would be a busy time for the tech industry. It was already in the news that Apple, Google and a few other companies are planning to launch their flagship devices in this month. The latest addition to this list is Microsoft, which has asked for “a moment of time” on October 2nd. If the rumors and reports are right, the tech giant would be launching the newer Surface devices during the event. The event will happen after Google’s probably-Pixel-3 events on September 12 but before Apple introduces its three new iPhones on 9th of October. The Microsoft event would be happening in New York itself.
While there are a handful of rumors, the most probable is the launch of an upgraded Surface line. Both the Surface Pro and Surface Book devices are expected to have some upgrades in terms of specifications. While there won’t be anything so overkill, newer processors and better RAM may make it to these devices. One thing that makes all these probable is the launch of Amber Lake and Whiskey Lake processors by Intel. There is a strong chance that Microsoft is upgrading its flagship devices to the latest, power-efficient processors from Intel soon.
Rumors also say that Microsoft may be working on an upgraded Surface Studio. However, there is not much confirmation on this part. Reports have also mentioned that some devices won’t surely be launched in the October event. For instance, most analysts are sure that customers won’t see the foldable Surface Device or design-overhaul Surface Pro in the event. That having said, Microsoft is expected to take us through an early look at the Surface Hub 2 or the big Windows Update that is on the way. As far as the launches are concerned, Surface Pro and Surface Book upgrades are most eminent.
