Microsoft announces Surface event on October 2, with livestream

Published by at

Microsoft’s Autumn event will take place on October 2nd in New York, almost four years to the day since the Lumia 950 range was launched alongside Surface hardware. More Surface tablets and laptops are expected this time, including Qualcomm Snapdragon (i.e. ARM)-powered Surface Gos.

The event page (and live stream) is here.

Expect the Surface Book 3, Surface Pro 7, and maybe a Surface Laptop 3, along with a first look or tease at 'Project Centaurus', the dual screen foldable phone tablet that Microsoft has been working on for years. Remember that it was aimed at the smartphone market first and then got cancelled in favour of just a larger variant.

So yes, four years since this event launched the Lumia 950, do see my retrospective. In late 2019 the focus seems all about the 'Your Phone' companion experience, hooked up to a companion Android phone, along with DeX (Continuum) extensions, more of which to be featured here when the NexDock 2 finally arrives!
