Microsoft has officially sent out invitations to the press October event 2019 to be held in New York City.
The company has not given any clues as to what it intends to present during this much discussed event, even now that we are only days away. In recent months, however, there have been many leaks and rumors that just confirm the upcoming debut of some key Surface products.
With the Surface Pro 7. Surface laptop 3 and a brand new product calledCentaurusWe're expecting a show that may be littered with stars and show up in various leaks and rumors from anonymous sources.
Not to mention the established product lines that are due for an upgrade like this Surface book 3 and Surface Studio 3, However, we did not hear much about these devices.
In this context, here are the highlights of each Surface product we'd like to see during the Microsoft October event, in the order in which they're likely to appear.
What we'll probably see: Surface Pro 7
Now with leaks and rumors about the possible exact configurations of Microsoft Surface Pro 7It's almost definitely a kick-off for the Microsoft October event. We now expect an even more favorable configuration for the tablet in the form of a package with an Intel Core i3 processor (CPU).
What we do not know is whether Microsoft is finally using USB-C – especially Thunderbolt 3 – instead of the proprietary Surface Connect connector. We would also like Intel Ice Lake CPUs and an improved Type Cover. Both were rumored, so we have high hopes.
What we'll probably see: Surface Laptop 3
The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is as good as the only other established Surface device discussed in terms of rumors and leaks. Not only one but two configurations become available. Right; It is rumored that a 15-inch version of the 13-inch model will be added this year.
And that's not all: European retailers suggest that the Surface Laptop 3 will use AMD processors, unlike Intel. However, we are more concerned about whether Microsoft also introduces Thunderbolt 3 ports here. In addition, the design could be slightly updated.
What we hope to see: Surface Book 3
The computer world has changed considerably since the year 2000 Surface book 2 go to the street and a Microsoft Surface Book 3 2019 all the more important. Both versions of the 2-in-1 laptop may initially benefit from Nvidia's new RTX graphics.
While we have not heard much about rumors or leaks regarding a Surface Book follow-up, an update is long overdue given the tremendous growth from the competition of "prosumer" laptops. Of course, we also want to see Thunderbolt 3 and stronger power management with these higher performance RTX graphics.
What we hope to see: Surface Studio 3
As with the Surface Book 3, we heard next to nothing about a Microsoft Surface Studio 3 Release. But it's also another long overdue update that we would like to see at the Microsoft October event. Nevertheless, the design of the all-in-one-artist desktop is fine.
What we would like to see updated here are the internals. That said, we'd like the follow-up to rock the latest Nvidia graphics and Intel processors. In recent years, this was not the case at the start. Finally Thunderbolt 3 and maybe the resolution?
What we hope to see: Surface Centaurus
There have been a number of patent applications and other rumors about a new Microsoft Surface device promoting either two screens or a single folding display. The various patent images and rumors give rise to thoughts Lenovo ThinkPad X1 foldable tablet,
Of course, very little is known about how this device will fit into Microsoft's larger portfolio and what specific or unique use cases it will support. Will it be a foldable mobile phone meets tablet? We can not wait to see if we can find it out at the Microsoft October Event.
