The end-of-the-year round of new consumer devices isn’t just limited to new smartphones. We also typically see a few new laptops and tablets, and it looks like Microsoft will be taking claim to at least a few headlines come October when the company hosts a Surface-focused event in NYC.
Specifically, Microsoft will hold a special Surface event in New York on October 2nd. The event teaser the company is sending to press members doesn’t disclose very much about what we can expect, but there’s a fair chance that we’ll at least see some spec bumps for existing Surface products, including the Surface Pro and Book.
Looking to the more speculative side of things, there’s also a chance Microsoft will show off a foldable Surface device with dual screens. Rumors point to the device offering a main screen for doing all your work and a secondary screen with a virtual keyboard and, potentially, notepad functionality. It should be similar in concept to Lenovo’s Yoga Book which offers a standard screen and a secondary E-ink panel. the Surface won’t have E-ink, but you can get an idea as to how it might be implemented.
With a full month to go until the Surface event is upon us, we have enough time for more rumors and reports to surface (pun definitely intended). Stay tuned, folks.
