What to Expect
Microsoft is expected to announce the Surface Laptop 3, Surface Pro 7 and Surface on ARM. The Surface Pro 7 may come with USB-C connector instead of Mini Display Port and will be powered by a 10th-gen Intel Core CPU.
Rumours also suggest that the ARM CPU-powered Surface will be thinner than the usual Pro lineup with extremely sleek bezels. Unlike previous Surfaces with Nvidia Tegra ARM chips, Microsoft is working with Qualcomm on this particular Surface. So, the ARM-powered Surface could use Qualcomm's latest 8cx chip, which was unveiled last year.
As for the Surface Laptop 3, it will come with a 15-inch screen size. Moreover, Surface Laptop 3 will be the first to use AMD processors. Another report by Microsoft leaker WalkingCat suggested that Microsoft may introduce a variant of Surface Laptop 3 without Alcantara — the infamous fabric covering — and even include removable SSDs as an option.
A recent leak by Evan Blass also suggests that the Surface Laptop 3 will be available in a black, green, grey, rose gold and silver colour variant.
For months now, it is also rumoured that Microsoft is launching a dual-screen Surface device. Codenamed Centaurus, Microsoft has been working on this device for two years and reportedly after being unveiled at the event today, and it will only go on sale in 2020.
Blass has also reported that the dual-screen Surface device will be powered by a purported Windows 10X platform, which will be designed especially for dual-and folding-screen devices.
