Microsoft is holding a third Surface keynote in October this year at Future Decoded in London, where it may announce a new Surface Book.

Microsoft has launched new hardware on two occasions already this year, with the Surface Laptop being announced at a special Windows 10 event back in May, and the new Surface Pro being announced in China later that very same month. Now, we're it appears Microsoft is planning a third Surface keynote at Future Decoded in London in October.

Microsoft has revealed to The Verge that Panos Panay will be present at Future Decoded next month in London, likely to announce new Surface hardware that has been rumored for some time. Microsoft is widely expected to unveil a new Surface Book, a device well overdue for a refresh being almost two years old.

We may also see Microsoft announce the availability of the Surface Pro LTE, a SKU that Microsoft said back in May would be coming later this year. The event may also see Microsoft show off new third party devices from hardware makers launching new Windows 10 on ARM devices, which appears to still be on track for launching this Fall. It's not clear if Microsoft is planning to launch its own ARM hardware this year, however.
