Microsoft Teases New Surface Pro Type Covers Before The Event In Shanghai
Microsoft is expected to unveil the next iteration of its Surface Pro family. Recent leaks have already given us a concept of what the new Surface Pro device will look like. Along with this, we also have the idea of its feature. However, Panos Panay, Microsoft Corporation's corporate vice president for Surface Computing gave an additional hint yesterday and it's not regarding the new device, but the Surface Pro Type Covers.
Surface Pro Type Covers Teased
According to The Verge, Panay posted an image on Instagram of four Surface keyboards in different colors. The caption included in the post is “Working session. 30 hours to go,” which pertains to the hours remaining before Microsoft’s Surface event in Shanghai. The Surface keyboards will be the new Type Cover colors Microsoft’s new Surface Laptop. It is said to made up of the same fabric used in the Surface Laptop cover.
The teaser comes just a few days after the leak revealed that the new Surface Pro device looks very similar to the current Surface Pro 4 unit. Evleaks, a well-known American blogger, editor, and tech leaker posted a marketing material of what is claimed to be just a “Surface Pro” but without any numbering. The new 2-in-1 tablet/laptop hybrid doesn’t appear to incorporate a USB-C port, not like the Surface Laptop.
The Microsoft Surface Event
The Surface Event will take place in Shanghai today, May 23, and Microsoft has promised to give attendees better information on their plans. Executives confirmed that “updates and more information” are coming more than rumors and leaks since this is the perfect timing. According to Pocket-Lint, aside from Type Covers in new colors, many Surface gadgets are in line to release.
It seems like the Redmond-based company is now simply making Alcantara the default option for the Surface Pro Type covers. This is a good sign since it’s supposed to be more durable and fragment than the old version. In addition, Kaby Lake refresh and minor spec upgrades for the Surface devices are to be announced.
