What To Expect On Microsoft's October 2018 Event 'Except' Surface Phone
For months, there have been rumors suggesting that there will be the Surface event coming in the second half of 2018. It seems that those rumors were true because Microsoft has officially sent out invites to an event that’s scheduled next month. But wait… Surface Phone still seems highly unlikely, as per reports.
The Upcoming Event
The event is scheduled for October 2, 2018 (4:00 PM ET) and will be held at Industria Studios at 775 Washington Street. The tagline on the event reads “A moment of your time” which we really don’t know what it means, but there have been some speculations being made by reports on what to expect.
Here’s What To Expect
First is the Timeline which is part of the Windows 10’s Task View. It shows the history of the activities the user has performed and can also synchronize activities across your PCs, making it easy for the user to pick up where they left off.
The second speculation is a Surface watch. In the past few months, there have been concept design videos of this device. Check out this video that was uploaded back in May.
Surface Book 3
The currently available model – Surface Book 2 – was unveiled on October 17, 2017. It was later released the next month on November 16. The upgraded Surface Book 3 is highly expected to be announced at the event.
Surface Studio 2
This device’s first generation model was unveiled way back in October 2016. As for its release date, it was on December 15, 2016.
Surface Go LTE
According to Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley, a Surface Go with LTE could also appear on the event. Apparently, Microsoft has said that the device is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2018.
Modern Life Services
Another possibility claimed by Foley is the “Modern Life Services”. She expects the company to share more details about this.
Another possibility is that Microsoft could release a refresh for its Surface Pro. In addition to that is the Surface Laptop.
No Surface Phone?
If you’re one of the hopefuls that been waiting forever for the Surface Phone ‘Andromeda‘, well, reports are suggesting that it won’t be making an appearance on the event. In fact, previous reports said that it could possibly be released in late 2019. But we’re still hoping that Microsoft will at least mention something about it.
