Microsoft is planning to unveil a new ARM-powered Surface at a hardware event in New York City this week, and renders of the device, alongside other Surface hardware also being announced, have finally leaked in the form of renders. Posted on Twitter by evleaks, these renders give us a detailed look at some of the upcoming hardware being announced this week.
The Surface on ARM device is going to be the most interesting one, as it's a redesign of the Surface Pro with slimmer bezels, a new type cover and pen accessory, and a rounder yet thinner chassis. This device looks sleek, and will definitely rival the likes of the iPad Pro that's already on the market. The Surface on ARM device is expected to be part of the Surface Pro product line, according to my sources.
In addition to the Surface on ARM device, Microsoft is also planning to unveil a new Surface Pro 7, which features the same design as last year's Surface Pro 6 but with the addition of a USB-C port in place of the Mini DisplayPort. Internally, the device should also be updated to 10th generation Intel processors.
Finally, renders of the Surface Laptop 3 have also leaked, revealing an updated design that replaces Alcantara with metal. The Surface Laptop 3 looks very similar to the Surface Laptop 2, except much cleaner as the entire device is metal now. The device will also come in a 15-inch variant and will be powered by AMD processors.
Luckily, these aren't the only products being announced on Wednesday, so the internet hasn't been completed spoiled just yet. Microsoft has some significant announcements planned for Wednesday, so make sure you stay tuned to Windows Central as we'll be covering all the announcements as they happen on the ground at New York on October 2.
