Back in July, there were reports that Microsoft will is working on an all-in-one PC for their Surface brand. New reports have emerged that claims that the new Surface PC is all set for a launch event in October.
According to ZDNet, sources have revealed that the new Surface computer is codenamed ‘Cardinal’. They also said that at least one model the all-in-one (AIO) would be revealed at the event that is to be held in New York City. The publication speculates that the Surface device may come in either 21-inch, 24-inch, or 27-inch options, or all three and it may be the consumer version of the Surface Hub.
Come to think of it, the delay in the in the launch of the Surface Book second generation is caused by due to the release of Surface all-in-one PC in October 2016. The features and specs of the AIO PC are closely kept under the wraps, and we are hoping that we’d know more about the device as the launch date comes closer. The event is reportedly called the Project Rio, and it’s likely to take place in New York.
Microsoft has been long working on a Surface Pro phone which may launch in October 2016. According to our estimation, the basic model of the upcoming Surface Pro 5 (the Intel Core i5 model) should be priced at $899 (£749, AU$1,349). The handset is expected to sport a magnificent stylus. Patently Mobile, the famous website for Samsung, Google & Microsoft patents, recently revealed about a patent filed by Microsoft for a stylus which comes with a rechargeable battery system. According to rumours, the Surface Pen of the upcoming Surface Pro 5 will feature a magnetic charging dock built by which the stylus will be powered. Some connectors will also be present in the stylus for Surface Dock mounting, which will help the stylus to receive its juice. This move from Microsoft makes sense as their arch rival Apple has already incorporated this technology in their iPad Pro’s Apple Pencil.
