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

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

With the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2's launch just a couple of days away, new rumours online are now suggesting that the notebook and the upcoming Surface Pro 6 might be absent of a particular port.

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.

Since Microsoft is not live streaming this event, we're going to bring the news to you the "old-fashioned" way: with a live blog. This event begins at 4PM Eastern Time on Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018. According to reports, Surface Laptop 2 will have 8GB of RAM for the base model.

As mentioned earlier, Microsoft is holding an event on October 2nd in NY.

Microsoft is widely expected to launch the Surface Pro 6. The company may also bring the successor to the Surface Laptop that debuted in May past year and was launched in India last month. The device still comes with a standard USB 3.1 Type A port and not the modern USB Type-C connector. And the top-end models will feature 16GB of RAM and an Intel Core i7 processors.

In terms of pricing, Microsoft has reportedly lowered the prices of the Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6. 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. The new devices should pack Intel's 8th generation processors, but we'll find out more later today. It could be that the black variants of the devices will be announced separately, though the reason for that is unclear. Having been criticized roundly in 2017 for offering a minor update to the Surface Pro 4 with the Surface Pro (2017), Microsoft is more-or-less doing exactly the same thing again, at least as far as the physical chassis and design are concerned. We've seen Microsoft release a growing number of Surface accessories over the years, and we hope that Microsoft can still surprise us today.

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