New Microsoft hardware launching on October 2

Microsoft is holding a hardware event in New York City on October 2.

We’re expecting the event to be relatively low-key, with a focus on refreshes of existing form factors rather than anything extraordinary and new. The release of the Whiskey Lake and Amber Lake processors by Intel means that the Surface Laptop, Surface Pro, and Surface Book 2 could all stand to see a processor bump. The niche Surface Studio would also be a good candidate for an update (its processor is two generations old and its GPU is one generation old), but we’re not honestly sure if Microsoft is even continuing to develop that particular form factor.

The one thing we can be confident that we won’t see is a Surface Phone. The last rumors around Andromeda, Microsoft’s alleged dual-screen handheld pocket-sized device, were that it was being delayed because the software wasn’t ready and nobody is quite sure what it’s good for. Since then, we’ve heard nothing more, so we’d expect this to still be the case.
