The 6th version of the Surface Pro will likely appear at the event, coming with numerous same changes we'll see in other devices below.

Microsoft is holding a launch event in NY later today to announce new products.

Microsoft is most likely to unveil the new Windows 10 October 2018 update at its event later tonight.

For weeks, there have been rumors that Microsoft were planning minor refreshes of its Surface line up in October, and this marketing image all but confirms this. Even the design of the Surface Pro 6 is going to resemble last year's model. We aren't expecting any major upgrades for the Surface devices, but there's one major new change. 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. Specifically, both devices might not have USB Type-C ports on them.

Surface Laptop 2 will retain the form factor of the predecessor but will improve in terms of specifications.

It is likely that the Surface Laptop 2 will also look identical to the Surface Laptop, which was announced past year.

When it comes to specs, the entry-level Surface Laptop 2 will pack an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM instead of 4GB, and 128GB of storage.

That's all for the existing family of Surface devices, but a brand new addition to the family isn't completely off the cards. Hopefully, however, this is all prelude to some price cuts that bring the Surface Laptop down to a price worth paying for. Like the Surface Laptop 2, the device will be available with the consumer version of Windows 10 in S-Mode.

"In April 2012, Microsoft launched the Surface RT, its sleek black chassis, detachable keyboard and integrated kick stand started a wave of innovation that has no signs of slowing down", Microsoft detailed in a New Zealand invite. The report also notes that Microsoft will also offer slightly lower prices than before, although the black versions cost more, as they're only available for the pricier Laptop and Pro versions that have at least a Core i5 processor and at least 256GB of SSD.
