Microsoft might announce new Surface hardware in October

At an event in New York City in May, Microsoft announced the Surface Laptop, alongside Windows 10 S, which is aimed at the educational market. Later that month, the firm announced the Surface Pro in Shanghai, making it the first Surface device to be launched outside of the United States.

As it turns out, Microsoft might be holding a third hardware launch this year, this time in London. The company confirmed to The Verge that Surface chief Panos Panay will be holding a keynote at its Future Decoded event, which runs from October 31 to November 1.

The device that we're seemingly most likely to see is a new iteration of the Surface Book. The current model will be two years old next month, and still uses Intel's sixth-generation 'Skylake' processors. It was refreshed with a 'Performance Base' model, but the main PC hasn't changed.

Microsoft also promised an LTE variant of the Surface Pro when that device was launched earlier this year, so that might be something that we see at the event as well. Other than that, refreshes to the Surface Studio and Surface Hub are also possible.

Ultimately, we'll find out what Panay has in store on October 31, so make sure to stay tuned to Neowin for that.
