Surface Pro 6 announced: familiar external design, big internal upgrades

Just hours from now, Microsoft will take to the stage in NY to announce new Surface devices at what has become its annual fall Surface event. As per a WinFuture report, Microsoft will launch the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 with some specification bumps. Its recent Surface Book 2 and Surface laptop are known for their capable performance and premium design. This rumor claims that Microsoft is sticking with the mini DisplayPort and Surface Connector to connect to displays and charge the device. It promises to offer all-day battery life, which apparently is 14.5 hours, but your mileage will obviously vary. Yes, the two devices will be available in a new black variant, but the classic silver colour, which still has a lot of fans will remain available.

The lack of ports is something you're either willing to live with or not, but the ongoing lack of USB-C support is just laziness at this point.

One of the most expected announcements for Microsoft's launch event is the successor to the Surface Pro (2017) that was launched a year ago. The device will come with Windows 10 in S-Mode pre-installed on the device.

Frankly, I'm not sure if such minimal changes warrant giving the name Surface Pro 6 to. Following that launch, in the fall of a year ago, Microsoft announced the Surface Laptop, the Surface Studio and the Surface Book 2.

Microsoft's main audience for these new devices is enterprise business professionals, according to Andrew Hewitt, an analyst at research firm Forrester. Preorders for the new Surface Pro have just opened up on Microsoft's own Store, and prices start at $899 for the entry-level model.

Microsoft is expected to unveil newer versions of the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop on Tuesday.

The company also unveiled its next-generation Windows software - called Windows 10 October 2018 Update - which has a focus on productivity. A new Nvidia chip based on the Pascal architecture means more graphics power, and it supports more than 4,000 degrees of pressure sensitivity from the Surface Pen, in addition to the Surface Pen's tilt functionality.
