The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 has been revealed. In images obtained by a website, we can see various shots of the laptop, externally. The launch will take place in New York City on 2nd October and will see the company unveil a range of updated Surface devices. This will include a new Surface laptop, Surface Pro and Surface Studio.
From the first look at the images we can see that the Surface Laptop 2 has the same design and selection of ports. The changes we can expect are obviously on the inside. However, on external change which is visible is the availability of the device in a new black colour.
This will be replacing the Graphite Gold model available last year. The Surface Laptop was launched last year in Burgundy, Cobalt Blue, Graphite Gold and Platinum colours. It looks like the laptop will feature the same 13.5 inch PixelSense display. It will be built from aluminium and an Alcantara fabric wrapped keyboard, like before.
The leaked images feature a Surface Laptop that has a design similar to its predecessors. It is speculated that the new Surface Laptop has a faster memory and 8th Gen Intel CPU.
A significant change in the color options is the absence of Graphite Gold which came along with the previous version. Now, it seems to be replaced by a new black colored variant along with same old Cobalt Blue, Burgundy and Platinum color.
Besides this, the next-gen Surface laptop doesn’t seem to bring many changes as it has the same form factor, screen, ports, etc. The device appears to have the same 13.5-inch screen and an aluminum frame.
The Alcantara fabric-covered keyboard still holds a large touch-pad, and there are USB 3.0 Type-A port, 3.5mm headset jack, and a Surface Connect port.
In the upcoming event, Microsoft is expected to unveil new versions of Surface Studio and Surface Pro range. Even though we would love to see something as exciting as an Andromeda-powered device but that doesn’t seem to be the case this time.
At the launch event, Microsoft will reportedly upgrade a few more products. The Surface Studio PC and Surface Book series might be refreshed. Rumours regarding an updated Surface Hub have also been around, making for an exciting lineup at the upcoming event.
