Microsoft has debuted another keyboard, adding to its growing lineup of stylish peripherals. Called the Microsoft Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID, the keyboard is now listed as "coming soon" in the Microsoft Store.
This new keyboard looks identical to the latest Surface Keyboard, which debuted in October of 2016 alongside the Surface Studio. The Microsoft Modern Keyboard can work either wired or wireless over Bluetooth, but the biggest difference is a Windows Hello-enabled fingerprint sensor tucked in next to the right Alt key.
Curiously missing, of course, is the Surface branding, which also seems to have been dropped from two other accessories. Alongside the new keyboard, Microsoft also unveiled a Modern Mouse and Microsoft Arc Mouse, both of which are listed as "coming soon" and are identical to their Surface-labeled counterparts. It could be that the Surface accessory lineup is undergoing some rebranding to make it clearer that they work with any PC, but that's just speculation for now. It's worth pointing out, however, that both the Surface Keyboard and Surface Ergonomic Keyboard still retain the moniker.
In any case, there's no word on when the new Microsoft Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID will be available for order. That said, it will cost you a pretty penny once it arrives; the store listing pegs the new keyboard at a cool $130.
