#Microsoft #Device – More Microsoft Devices Get Discounts, Hints At Hardware Launch Coming Soon; Lumia 950 XL, Surface Book, Lumia 550 On Sale : Microsoft has once again put some of its products on sale. Two Microsoft Lumia devices and one Surface device are getting a significant price cut for a time period. It’s worth noting that the company hasn’t said anything about a new hardware launch yet. However, these marked down prices highly suggest that a new set of products might be coming soon.
Microsoft Surface Book, Microsoft Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 550 On Sale
Last year’s biggest Microsoft phone is now on sale. The Lumia 950 XL is now marked down in the U.K. and it can be acquired for just £299 through Amazon. The same product can also be bought in Microsoft’s U.K. site for £339 alongside a Display Dock freebie.
Furthermore, still in the UK, the Surface Book also got a considerable amount of discount. According to GSM Arena, the Core i5/8 GB RAM/128 GB SSD laptop can be grabbed in the company’s online store for £1,104 instead of the usual £1,299. This discount of around £200 is said to be valid until October 17.
MS Power User, on the other hand, also reported about another Microsoft Sale, and it’s for the Lumia 550. According to the source, the said device is now being sold at the Microsoft Store for only $99. The said promotion will run until October 9. Take note that this lower-end Lumia device is normally priced $139, making the discount $40 in total.
Microsoft To Introduce New Surface Devices Through A 2016 Hardware Launch
According to various leaks and rumors, Microsoft will be holding an event later this year to introduce new devices. While most people are awaiting the arrival of the alleged Surface Phone and the next-generation Surface Pro and Surface Book, this doesn’t seem plausible.
The discounted products sure does indicate that Microsoft will be replacing them soon, but it doesn’t seem like this will be happening this year. In fact, it’s a Surface desktop that has been the subject of rumors lately and not Surface’s portable devices.
Needless to say, the Surface Phone, the Surface Pro 5 and the Surface Book 2 might have their appearances next year. Meanwhile, if there really would be a Microsoft hardware launch this year, it could only focus on the Surface desktop and revamped Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book devices. source:itechpost
