In the lead-up to Microsoft's October 2 event, the rumor mill has lit up about the potential Surface updates, including a new black color option. Now, thanks to an official Microsoft listing for an October 16 event (via WalkingCat) set to take place in Auckland, New Zealand, it seems the fresh coat of paint is all but confirmed.
The event carries the unsubtle title of "Surface Back to Black," and calls back to the black chassis present on 2012's Surface RT. From the description:
So, if you were looking forward to going back to black with your next Surface, it looks like Microsoft may just have a treat in store for you this week.
As for what else is in store, we're expecting hardware refreshes for the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop, but everything else is up in the air at this point. But one thing's for sure: we'll know exactly what Microsoft has in store when it kicks things off on October 2 at 1 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET. So far, it doesn't look like Microsoft is livestreaming this event, but keep your eyes locked to Windows Central for all of the news as it develops.
