Microsoft is holding yet another hardware event on May 23, only weeks after introducing its new Surface Laptop and Windows 10 S. The new event will be happening in Shanghai, China, and during the event the company is expected announce the new “Surface Pro”.
However, it’s not much of a secret anymore, since a number of images leaked onto the web revealing the new “Surface Pro” — it will not be called Surface Pro 5 –, but of course, during Shanghai event we’ll hear more details, such as tech specs, pricing, and release date.
Ahead of the “show the world what’s next” event, Microsoft’s Vice President of Devices, Panos Panay, also posted on Instagram an image hinting the new Type Cover for the Surface Pro. The new Type Cover isn’t shown fully in the image, but it appears that there will be four different colors in Alcantara fabric, similar to the keyboard for the new Surface Laptop.
Microsoft’s next Surface event will be happening in China on May 23, and the company has confirmed that it’ll start at 4:00 AM PST and 7:00 AM EST. However, it appears that the company won’t be offering an stream to watch the event live.
Update May 23, 2017: Although Microsoft is not streaming the Surface event live, you can still watch the event (in Chinese) at bilibili.
