A new marketing image spotted by Walking Cat on Twitter has confirmed that the upcoming Microsoft hardware event will unveil refreshed Surface devices, including an updated Surface Pro and Surface Laptop in black, and a new Surface Studio.

For weeks, there have been rumors that Microsoft were planning minor refreshes of its Surface line up in October, and this marketing image all but confirms this. The devices look almost identical to the current ones on the market, with the only real differences expected to be upgraded internals.

Rumors also suggest that the new Surface Laptop and Surface Pro will come in a new black color; a call-back to the original Surface tablets that also shipped in black. It doesn't look like Microsoft is removing the grey options, only that black will be an additional color choice for customers to choose if they so wish. It doesn't look like the Surface Studio is black in the marketing image, however.

Microsoft is set to announce these new products, plus more, in just a few hours at a private event in New York.
