New Surface devices reportedly arriving at Microsoft's October 2017 event


According to a report from The Verge, Microsoft will launch at least one new Surface device at a keynote at the company's annual Future Decoded event in London on October 31. A keynote by Panos Panay, Microsoft’s Surface head of product, will be delivered at the event.

This is no surprise, given that Microsoft has been unveiling new Surface devices in the month of October for last several years. Last year (2016) it announced Surface Studio AIO PC, and a year before (2015) announced Surface Book laptop, Surface Pro 4 2-in-1 tablet, Microsoft Band 2 and Lumia 950/950XL/550 smartphones.

It is not clear what Microsoft will announce at this years event, but the company has been working on a couple of Surface products:
  • Surface Pro LTE version
  • Surface Book 2
  • Upgraded Surface Hub
  • ARM-powered Windows laptop with Snapdragon chipset and LTE in partnership with PC makers HP, Asus and Lenovo
Unfortunately, the highly-anticipated Surface Phone will be still missing in action, and give the event a skip.

The most likely candidate is Surface Pro LTE version and the Surface Book 2, which is due for a upgrade since two years. It is likely to use Intel’s new 8th generation Kaby Lake R processors. Whatever the device is, Microsoft's plan will be to make it available by the holiday season.

Earlier this year in May, Microsoft launched a new Surface Laptop with Windows 10 S OS, targeted at education market, with the aim to compete with Chromebooks.
