Microsoft would only hint that the Surface Studio 2 is coming soon along with the new Surface Headphones.

The Surface Pro 6 starts at $899, while the Surface Laptop is priced at $999. Pre-orders for the device do not seem to be available as of writing.

With the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2's launch just a couple of days away, new rumours online are now suggesting that the notebook and the upcoming Surface Pro 6 might be absent of a particular port. Microsoft is claiming up to 14.5 hours of battery life on the new laptop, as well as 85% more performance, but the 85% gain is only because it sat with dual-core Kaby Lake for so long. In the video, we can see the yet-to-be-launched Surface Pro 6 in all its full glory. Overall, it weighs 1.7 pounds, boasts the familiar 12.3-inch display and up to 16GB of RAM. A price for the Surface Laptop 2 was not leaked alongside. The new laptop kept the same design with an Alcantara-covered keyboard, but Microsoft says that users should enjoy faster and quieter typing.

Microsoft is expected to unveil newer versions of the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop on Tuesday.

The Surface Laptop 2 is noticeably revamped, in more ways than the processor.

It will also come with up to 2 TB of SSD storage, and supports "next-gen" Pascal graphics. The display, powered by 13.5 million pixels, is nearly 40 percent brighter, however, with more contrast.




It also includes a brand new Surface Pen with tilt sensability, as well as the Surface Dial controller with haptic feedback. Both are available for preorder starting today, October 2. It's expected to ship November 15th. Sadly, we can't that with Microsoft's "Surface Event", because there won't be a live stream.

The Surface Headphones are Microsoft's first premium and smart headphones.

"With automatic pause and play, they will even pause the movie or video you are watching when you remove them from your ears". Microsoft also says it's easy to toggle between laptop, studio and tablet mode. It can offer 'proactive guidance, read you emails, or kick off your conference call, ' according to the firm.

Designed in-house over three years, the Surface Headphones evolved on the inside and changed shape on the outside many times before turning into the final product that will ship this holiday season (initially in the U.S. only).

Microsoft talked up the refreshed Surface line on October 2 during its Fall Event in New York City. Meanwhile, there are some changes in terms of the operating system. Let us know down in the comments.
