Microsoft is holding an event on October 2nd in New York where it’s expected to announce the refreshed Surface Laptop 2 and the Surface Pro 6. There have been many leaks on them and now the latest information coming from the Germany site WinFuture claims that neither the Surface Laptop 2 nor the Surface Pro will include the USB-C ports.
According to the report, Microsoft will continue to use the mini DisplayPort and Surface Connector combo for connecting displays and charging the device. The report further claims that the base model of the new Surface Laptop 2 will come with 8GB of RAM, an Intel Core i5 processor and 128GB of SSD storage.
It seems like the new Surface products are just receiving the usual hardware upgrades and the complete overhaul is missing. This means the company will only upgrade the processors in the two devices, while the rest of the features will remain the same.
Additionally, the report also tells that there will also be a new Black color variant of both the devices, something we heard before as well.
Also, the 16GB RAM model and the 512GB SSD memory are also back with quad-core Intel Core i7 SoC. The report further sheds light on the pricing of the Surface Pro 6. The entry-level model of the same is said to be 899 Euros, which is similar to the pricing of the last year’s model.
