As a quick recap, both the 12.3-inch Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 sport a PixelSense display and are powered by the quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core processor. Microsoft claims the battery of the Pro 6 and Laptop 2 can juice them up for up to 13.5 hours and 14.5 hours of video playback, respectively.
The launch of the newest Surface devices, which were announced in October of last year, is a welcome move by Microsoft for the Indian market. It's worth noting that the company refrained from bringing its early generation of Surface lineup to the Indian market. In 2015, however, Microsoft had a change of heart and announced that it would introduce its Surface devices to the country.
