Microsoft To ‘Heavily Redesign’ Surface Pro 6, Due Next Year

Microsoft exits support forums

Here's what to expect from the news wave of Surface devices.

ZDNet reports that Microsoft will in all probability keep the Surface Connector for another whole generation and is also working on a new Surface-branded headset that should look similar to the Jabra Evolve.

For starters, there's Libra, which Sams believes to be a code-name for a low-priced Surface tablet that Bloomberg reported on earlier this year.

It's been a bit since the release of the Surface Book 2, and now we're finally getting the first hints about the next Surface devices from Microsoft. Also not confirmed, is the addition of USB-C ports on the upcoming device. Those same reports have said that the tablet will be powered by an Intel processor, but Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 850 sounds like it would be a better fit running Windows 10 on ARM (at least with respect to battery life).

Nintendo Jabs Sony For Sabotaging Fortnite Cross-Play, Sony Issues Feckless Response
Fortnite is already a huge hit with PS4 fans, offering a true free-to-play experience so gamers can jump in and play online. The lack of cross-play means any purchases they've made on PS4 won't carry over to the Switch.

Plenty of uncertainty continues to hover over all these projects and products, but several trusted insiders expect a "family of small, cheaper Surface tablets" codenamed Lex or Libra to see daylight "later this year". As per a report by the The Verge, the device is not expected to arrive until mid-2019, even though Microsoft is expected to announced a refreshed design for its 8th-generation processor lineup later this year.

As Sams notes: "Microsoft thinks of this hardware as a pocketable device to create a truly personal and versatile computing experience".

Sources speaking to ZDNet and have dropped the codename for a major overhaul to Microsoft's Surface Pro: "Carmel".
