Microsoft Isn't Bothering To Live Stream Its Own Surface Event

Microsoft Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2 Leak Tips Specifications and Price Ahead of Launch

Microsoft Surface Pro 6 details leaked in an un-boxing video

Despite the sad ports situation, there really isn't something fundamentally wrong with the current Surface Pro design, but Microsoft reportedly plans a significant update for the hybrid tablet next year.

Microsoft's event will take place on October 2 at 4PM ET (1:30am IST, October 3).

If the hardware upgrades are good news, the ongoing lack of any kind of USB-C support on either system is, well, less-good news. Indian Express, citing a Vietnamese website which uploaded an unboxing video of the soon-to-be-launched Surface Pro 6, reported the leak.

Microsoft Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2 Leak Tips Specifications and Price Ahead of Launch

Microsoft's next-generation Surface Pro and Surface Laptop are both expected to be announced tomorrow, but the size of the update may disappoint those who were hoping for more than a minor refresh. According to a WinFuture report, Surface Pro 6 will start with a Core m3-7Y30 processor and 4GB RAM. To begin, it was revealed last month that a new Surface devices could be available a new black color. Users will be able to configure their notebooks just like in previous years, with RAM going up to 16GB, storage going up to 1TB of SSD, and up to Intel Core i7 chips. Hopefully, however, this is all prelude to some price cuts that bring the Surface Laptop down to a price worth paying for. The report claims that the entry-level price for the Surface Pro 6 will be Euro 899 (roughly Rs. 75,900). 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. It will start at 8GB RAM. Among all the Surface devices, only the Surface Book 2 comes with a USB Type-C port built in.

Currently, there is no information available on the pricing of the Surface Pro 6. You'd still have to deal with USB-A and Mini DisplayPort connectors instead of newer USB-C ports, however. It will happen on October 16th, and Microsoft says Surface is going "back to black". It looks like Microsoft has officially confirmed earlier reports that claimed that the new Surface lineup will be launched in a black colour variant.

Microsoft already had a black Surface years ago, but for the past five years it only offered silver models.
