Microsoft Surface hardware event this year has been scheduled for next month and Microsoft is sending out media invites, dropping some hints. The event kicks off October 2, at 10 am EST (7:30 pm IST) in New York. For those who can't attend this event in person, Microsoft will live-stream the event online across a variety of platforms, including social media and YouTube. As always, we will keep our readers informed about the live stream of the Microsoft Surface 2019 launch event as it nears. For now, we discuss everything Microsoft is expected to announcing during their event next month.
As you can see, Microsoft has released a teaser that clearly reveals the Surface logo, apparently, in the shape of a processor. It hints at some new addition to the Surface line-up - with a different processor altogether. However, Microsoft hasn't revealed any concrete details yet. The Verge notes Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and chief product officer Panos Panay will likely attend this event. Nadella did not participate in last year's Surface event where Microsoft upgraded Surface Pro and Surface Laptop line-up. Last year, Microsoft also launched Surface Studio 2 and new Surface Headphones.

This year, some new refreshes to Microsoft's existing Surface line-up are expected. It's being rumoured that Microsoft would announce three new additions: Surface laptop powered by AMD processor, a new Surface device powered by Qualcomm processor and a new Surface Pro featuring USB Type-C. Microsoft is expected to drop more hints about their upcoming Surface line, ahead of October 2. We can also expect some new improvements to Windows 10 to better adapt to the new Surface hardware being rumoured this time around. Microsoft will also likely announce a surface device featuring two screens.
According to The Verge report, Microsoft has been working on the hardware for the past two years. Microsoft is reportedly readying its foldable Surface device that is expected to launch towards the end of 2020
