Live from Microsoft’s Surface hardware event

This could be a big Surface event

Microsoft is back with its annual Surface event to showcase the latest hardware the company has ready for the holiday season. Last year, Microsoft revealed new black finishes for its Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 alongside an updated Surface Studio 2 and new Surface Headphones.

This year, we’re expecting to see a new Surface Pro 7, an AMD-powered Surface Laptop 3 that may come in a new 15-inch model, and an ARM-powered Surface Pro that will have all-day battery life. We may even see a new Surface-branded speaker designed for Microsoft Teams.

The star of the show will likely be a big unveiling of what is known as “Windows Lite” internally at Microsoft. It’s a new version of Windows that’s designed to be stripped back and ready for dual-screen and foldable hardware. We may even see a teaser of a Surface device with this new version of Windows, and it could be the big announcement from the show. Follow along with us live to hear all the latest Surface and Windows news right here.
