Microsoft has just sent out invites to its upcoming event where the company “will talk about devices,” on October 12, 2022.
Without being too pedantic, it seems pretty safe to assume that the invites are for Microsoft’s annual Surface hardware event the company hosts each Fall.
Following the rollout of the Windows 11 2022 Update, Microsoft has promised a feature pack update also landing in October and it may dovetail with the announcement of new hardware on the 12th.
Many are expecting Microsoft to consolidate its Surface Pro hardware with introduction of an update to the Surface Pro X that could come with the latest Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 processor as well as a Surface Pro 9 with Intel’s 12th Gen chips, with both devices utilizing the same modernized body.
We also believe there will be an update to Microsoft’s All-in-One (AIO) efforts with the Surface Studio getting a refresh as well as the Surface Laptop 5 possibly coming with more ports, faster refresh rates, haptic trackpads, thinner bezels and Intel’s latest chips.
Finally, there are accessories Microsoft might touch upon such as the Surface Earbuds from 2019, possibly the Surface Headphones, and maybe some improvements to the Surface Pen.
Microsoft may opt to show off its new features pack during the event which is supposed to include a new Tabbed File Explorer interface, Taskbar, Photos Apps, and Task Manager improvements on these new devices next month.
