The new devices should pack Intel's 8th generation processors, but we'll find out more later today.

Microsoft announced a new Surface Pro convertible laptop at a press conference in New York City on Tuesday. According to Microsoft's Product lead Panos Panay the new Surface Pro is 67 percent faster than its predecessor, and has "all day" 13.5 hour battery life.

We've seen the alleged Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 in other leaks recently, including images of each, but German website WinFuture claims to have received specs from "trusted sources" that reveal minor updates rather than a line overhaul. Right now at Microsoft, the only Surface Laptop models you can order are the Core i5-equipped machines with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $1,299. Having been criticized roundly in 2017 for offering a minor update to the Surface Pro 4 with the Surface Pro (2017), Microsoft is more-or-less doing exactly the same thing again, at least as far as the physical chassis and design are concerned. Engadget says buyers will be able to choose black, blue, red, or "platinum grey" color schemes for their new Pro.

The company introduced the Surface in 2012 and has steadily added more products under that brand name, including the Surface Studio all-in-one PC and Surface Laptop clamshell device. However, for professionals who need to stay on the move, it's far from a awful bargain. It will happen on October 16th, and Microsoft says Surface is going "back to black".

Microsoft is expected to unveil its next Surface Pro tablet and Surface Laptop tomorrow, 2 October, during a dedicated hardware announcement event in NY. "It does claim that typing on this version will be quieter, though". The Surface Studio 2 also features Nvidia Pascal graphics, improved display and it's the fastest Surface device.

Alongside new computers, Microsoft also surprised attendees by launching a pair of Surface Headphones.

It boasts a 28 inch display that's said to be 38 percent brighter than the original Surface Studio, as well as 22 percent more contrast. Hopefully, however, this is all prelude to some price cuts that bring the Surface Laptop down to a price worth paying for. Both devices will be available on October 16th, which is just two weeks away.

"With automatic pause and play, they will even pause the movie or video you are watching when you remove them from your ears".

Cortana, Microsoft's digital assistant, is also built into the headphones. The device will come with Windows 10 in S-Mode pre-installed on the device.

It will support phones running Android 7.0 or Google's mobile operating system.
