Surface Pro 6 To Debut Major Redesign Next Year

Surface Pro 6 To Debut Major Redesign Next Year

A new report from ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley suggests Microsoft's next Surface Pro, now known as the Surface Pro 6, will be "heavily redesigned".

That said, you can probably expect a mild Surface Pro update this year, but nothing fancy.

It's been a bit since the release of the Surface Book 2, and now we're finally getting the first hints about the next Surface devices from Microsoft.

It appears that Microsoft is also working on new Surface-branded accessories, and we may not see a new Surface dock until late 2019. Rumoured to arrive before the end of 2018, it is expected to have a 10-inch display and could very well go head-to-head with Apple's iPad range.

The company allegedly claimed that the product was used by the Defense Department on the battlefield in Afghanistan, generating $100 million in revenue for the company in 2014.

There's also a third device, Andromeda, that is allegedly being developed by the Surface team.

Being a portable device, Andromeda is expected to offer a "truly personal and versatile" computing experience. Similar leaks have been seen in the past that suggested this product as the Surface Phone.

Microsoft could also unveil the new Surface Pro 6 which will succeed the Surface Pro 5. It's reported that a minor refresh of the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop will debut later this year with 8generation Intel Core processors and potentially USB-C connectivity, which Microsoft has been reticent to adopt on its Surface hardware. The tablet supports Microsoft's Surface Dial, and a newly launched Surface Pen stylus that supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. The device is scheduled to arrive around the mid-point of next year and will be "heavily redesigned" according to Mary Jo Foley. With Qualcomm entering the PC space, there is also a chance that Microsoft could use one of the newly designed chipsets made for always connected notebooks. Nonetheless, the company could possibly change before the products are launched or it could possibly be disregarded.
