Microsoft’s Next Surface Pro Will Reportedly Get a Radical Redesign

Surface Pro 6 rumored to launch in the moiddle of next year powered by the latest Intel processors

More details emerge about Microsoft’s rumored new hardware, including redesigned Surface Pro 6

Several other products are also in the works at Microsoft, including the Surface Hub 2, the next HoloLens release (codename Sydney), the 2020 Xbox console (codename Scarlett), a new Jabra Evolve-like Surface-branded headset, and a new Surface dock.

Thurrott got its hands on a couple of internal documents which outlined Microsoft's plans for the Surface family. Microsoft first launched the Surface-branded device in 2012 as an attempt to take on Apple iPad. According to an article written by ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, Microsoft is planning to release the next Surface Pro i.e the Surface Pro 6 in 2019. With the device being pocketable, my biggest open question is whether or not it will have phone functionality, effectively making it a Surface phone, and a new attempt at breaking into the smartphone market.

The Surface Pro 6 is said to be a major update to Microsoft's current lineup of Surface Pro 2-in-1 tablets.

According to the report , OnePlus customer will receive an extra off of Rs 1,500 on the exchange of an older OnePlus smartphone. The successor to the Bullets V2, OnePlus Bullets Wireless was unveiled alongside the company's 2018 flagship, the OnePlus 6 .

Panay told CNET in an interview previous year that Microsoft will formally issue the next numbered Surface Pro "when it's meaningful and the change is right, we'll put it on market".

First up is a low-priced Surface Tablet internally referred to by the name of Libra. The report stated that the device is slated to arrive in 2018, and the leaked documentation reveals that this product is codenamed Libra. It's reported that a minor refresh of the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop will debut later this year with 8generation Intel Core processors and potentially USB-C connectivity, which Microsoft has been reticent to adopt on its Surface hardware. Primarily aimed at the education industry, the devices are meant to compete with Chromebooks and iPads. Over the years, the company did make some changes here and there to improve the usability of the device and general stability but drastic design changes haven't been its cup of tea.
