Microsoft sends invites for October 12 event, new Surface Pro 9 expected

  • The Surface Pro 9 continues to be Microsoft’s mainstream hybrid computer and will be the star of the show.
  • Microsoft could also announce the Surface Laptop 5 and Surface Studio 3 computers at the event.

Microsoft sent out invitations to an event on October 12th, where the tech giant will unveil new Surface hardware products. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. IST.

“Watch live to see what’s next,” the company wrote in the invitation. As typical for Microsoft events, details were sparse. The Redmond tech giant has been holding its fall events in October, where it typically reveals Surface-branded computers. Last year, the company unveiled the Surface Pro 8, Surface Laptop Studio, Surface Go 3, Surface Pro X and Surface Duo 2.

Analysts and industry insiders anticipate at least three to four new products for this year’s lineup, including the Surface Pro 9, Surface Laptop 5, and Surface Studio 3 desktop computer.

The Surface Pro 9 will be the star of the show as Microsoft’s mainstream hybrid computer. Although the Surface Pro line received a significant update last year, expect subtle changes when the Surface Pro 9 is released next month. Microsoft is reportedly planning to release the Surface Pro 9 in both Intel and ARM variants, effectively ending the Surface Pro X line.

Microsoft still has a long way to go in terms of perfecting Windows experiences on devices powered by ARM-based chips. The company is heavily reliant on Qualcomm, the mobile chipmaker responsible for bringing ARM processors to PCs. Microsoft and Qualcomm are nowhere near providing the same level of experience as a Mac. Apple’s Mac computers are powered by custom M-series ARM-based chips. Apple’s M-series chips have received positive feedback from both critics and customers.

At the event, Microsoft may also unveil the Surface Laptop 5 and Surface Studio 3 computers. The Surface Studio 3 will be aimed at designers and enthusiasts. It will be interesting to see how Microsoft revs up its hero product, which hasn’t received a major update in years. The first model was released in late 2016, and the second in late 2018. Surface Studio 3 accessories, including a Surface Pen, Mouse, and Keyboard with functionality-upgraded keys, were recently leaked, hinting at the upcoming release of the creative-focused desktop computer.

In the world of technology, October is going to be a busy month. On September 28, Amazon will host an invite-only product event. Meanwhile, on October 5, Google will unveil its new Pixel 7 series and other products, followed by the Meta Connect metaverse event on October 11. Apple is also expected to hold an iPad and Mac-focused event next month.
