Introducing Microsoft Surface Pro 6

It will happen on October 16th, and Microsoft says Surface is going "back to black".

Microsoft's event will take place on October 2 at 4PM ET (1:30am IST, October 3). Surface head Panos Panay said that MIcrosoft redesigned the thermals to handle the new quad-core processor.

The company showed off a new Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, and Surface Studio 2 during a press event in NY on Tuesday.

It's tough to say given the quality of the images we've seen so far, but the design of the Pro 6 also seems to be identical to its predecessor, and it sounds like it will launch with the same Surface Pen.

The keyboard is covered in Microsoft's "Signature Alcantara" fabric, making it even quieter than before. This move would give the new Pro a bit more oomph at every level - the new Core m3-8100Y offers a maximum turbo clock of 3.4GHz as opposed to the 2.6GHz on the older m3-7Y30, while the 8th Gen Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs typically offered higher core counts than the 7th Generation CPUs the Surface Pro 2017 relied on.

Trump defends Brett Kavanaugh, wants FBI investigation 'comprehensive'
Republicans have 51 seats in the closely divided 100-member Senate and can not afford to lose more than one vote on confirmation. It's not now clear whether the Republican leadership has secured enough votes to ensure Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 features the latest 8th-generation Intel processors that pack a quad-core chip that is created to be up to 67 percent faster than the fifth-generation Surface Pro. In case I wasn't already aware, Microsoft has a world class industrial design facility and a bunch of labs to test products as it builds and refines them. A price for the Surface Laptop 2 was not leaked alongside. Sadly, we can't that with Microsoft's "Surface Event", because there won't be a live stream.

The firm describes them as their 'first premium and smart headphone experience'.

"With this update, we'll be bringing new features and enhancements to the almost 700 million devices running Windows 10 that help people make the most of their time", Roanne Sones, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft wrote in a blog post last month.

But it also announced some revamped features slated to roll out in the Windows 10 October Update.

Then again, ditching the Surface Connect port wouldn't let MS sell the giant adapter version of a USB-C to Surface Connect port for $80, which probably explains why the system hasn't changed.
