Microsoft seems to be all set to host an event on October 31. At the event, the company is believed to take the wraps off the new Surface device.
On October 31, Panos Panay, the Surface product lead will take the stage to unveil the next big Microsoft device. It is believed that the next-generation Surface Book will be launched at the event. According to The Verge, Microsoft will host the Future Decoded event in London for two days - October 31 and November 1.
The report reveals that Panay will host the event and give the keynote speech and that at least one device will be launched then. Going by the company's launch pattern for the Surface products, we believe that it will be the new Surface Book.
It is believed that Microsoft might announce the Surface Pro LTE availability at the event. It is a SKP+U that was stated to arrive later this year. Microsoft is also in plans to launch the ARM powered Windows laptops this year from a range of manufacturers.
Back in May this year, Microsoft launched the new Surface Laptop with the Windows 10 S operating system claiming that it will compete against the likes of the Chromebooks. The new Surface Pro was also launched in the same month. It is also believed that the company might announce an update to the Surface Hub, the large business focused interactive display.
Going by the existing leaks, the new Surface Book is believed to ditch the 2-in-1 design. It is expected to look like a regular laptop without any adjustable or detachable hinges that can transform the laptop and make it usable as a tablet or in tent mode. In terms of design, the Surface Book 2 is believed to be priced around $1,000 (approx. Rs. 65,000).
Given that the original Surface Book was launched in October 2015, the upcoming model is one of the highly anticipated devices of this year that will come after two years.
