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

While the Redmond-based tech major hasn't given any clues as to what it will announce, many believe the company will introduce two new members in the Surface family: Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2.

As spotted by Twitter user WalkingCat, Microsoft is holding an event in Auckland, New Zealand on October 16 with a description that says that Surface is going "back to black" - which is also the name of the event itself.

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

The Surface Pro 6 reportedly retains the Core M option, but swaps in 8th generation cores up the stack as well. Both the Surface Pro 6 and the Surface Laptop 2 will be pre-installed in the consumer versions of Windows 10 in S-mode. So, not choosing to refresh its flagship Surface Pro and Surface Laptop notebooks does raise a considerable number of questions.

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. To begin, it was revealed last month that a new Surface devices could be available a new black color. As per a WinFuture report, Microsoft will launch the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 with some specification bumps. This rumor claims that Microsoft is sticking with the mini DisplayPort and Surface Connector to connect to displays and charge the device. And the top-end models will feature 16GB of RAM and an Intel Core i7 processors. The original model which launched in December 2016 received some criticism for its high price and underpowered specs, and we hope to see a new version today with the latest Intel processors and more powerful GPUs.

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

Microsoft doesn't seem to be a big fan of USB-C on most devices. Additionally, there will be new Black colour variants of both the devices.

Microsoft already had a black Surface years ago, but for the past five years it only offered silver models. It doesn't look like the Surface Studio is black in the marketing image, however.
