Microsoft confirms Surface is going ‘back to black’

New, 22 comments

Microsoft has accidentally confirmed it’s planning black Surface models. The software giant first launched its Surface RT in a black “VaporMG” variant nearly six years ago, and switched to silver options ever since. In an event listing (that has now been removed) for a Surface event in New Zealand on October 16th, Microsoft says Surface is going “back to black.”

While the company doesn’t list the devices involved, rumors suggest Microsoft will announce a Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6 in black variants tomorrow. Both devices are expected to launch with Intel’s latest processors, and may not include modern USB-C ports. Microsoft will likely keep this black color variant for the high-end models of both the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2.

The Verge will be covering Microsoft’s Surface event live from New York City tomorrow at 4PM ET / 1PM PT. Stay tuned for all the latest news.
