#SurfacePro5 #SurfacePhoneSurface Book 2, Surface Pro 5, Surface Phone updates: What will Microsoft’s October 26 event bring? : Microsoft has announced an event for October 26 this year but the company is not revealing which Surface products will be unveiled along with Windows 10 updates at the event. Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming Surface Book 2, Surface Pro 5 and the rumored Surface Phone.

Surface Book 2 release date, specs

There are reports saying that Microsoft will launch AIO Surface PC that will take on iMac during the October hardware event. The second generation of Surface Book may not be launched in the show but could have a 2017 release date instead, ZDnet reported.

Several rumors point at the Intel Kaby Lake processor as reason for the delay. The powerful chip is rumored to be used in Macbook Pro 2016, and may also be shipped with Surface Book 2. Other speculations on the specs talk about VR-ready features, 4K display and improved hinge.

Surface Pro 5 release date, specs

Another much-anticipated device is the Microsoft Surface Pro 5. Rumors indicate a no show on October 26 as the event is expected to showcase new mouse and keyboard, Forbes reported. Fans should expect its launch together with the Surface Book 2 in early 2017, reports say.

Speculations are rife that the Kaby Lake processor will also be powering the Surface Pro 5. Mobipicker cited a Chinese source as saying that there will be 2K and 4K variants of the upcoming Surface Pro. However, the 4K may only come with paid-for feature whilst the 2K display is meant for standard model, reported KitGuru.

It is very likely that Microsoft will fix the battery problem present in Surface Pro 4. If so, the upcoming Surface Pro 5 could have longer-lasting, more-efficient battery along with spacious 16 GB of RAM.

Surface Phone release date, specs

There is so far no confirmation from the Redmond -based tech giant regarding the existence of Microsoft Surface Phone but rumors are rife that the company is developing the “breakthrough” new phone. There could be three variants of the Surface Phone as a speculative claim from Trusted Reviews suggests.

Microsoft could categorize the phones based on the RAM (3GB – 6GB – 8 GB). The phone is said to sport 5.7 inch Quad HD display and a Carl Zeiss’ 20 MP camera. Just like the other two devices, the Surface Phone may also be released in 2017. Source: delhidailynews
