Microsoft's hosting its annual hardware event later today in NY, and that means we are expected to see the new Surface range and maybe a bunch of other things too.

Externally, the only difference, according to WinFuture, is the addition of a new black model to the Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6 - which I suppose means we're back to model numbers?

Microsoft is holding a launch event in NY later today to announce new products. It wasn't until previous year that Microsoft launched different colored devices again with the Surface Laptop, but black wasn't among the options offered. A massive leak last week previewed what will become the Surface Pro 6, complete with specs and pictures. Instead, Laptop 2 and Pro 6 will retain the mini DisplayPort, Surface Connector, and USB-A ports found on previous models. The company may also bring the successor to the Surface Laptop that debuted in May previous year and was launched in India last month.

If the hardware upgrades are good news, the ongoing lack of any kind of USB-C support on either system is, well, less-good news. However, the Surface Laptop 2 will be much improved over its predecessor in terms of specifications. The base Surface Laptop 2 is expected to pack 8GB of RAM, an Intel Core i5 processor, and 128GB of storage. Ahead of the unveiling, a new report has hinted at the changes that we can expect from the upcoming devices. Also, there will be other variants with 16GB of RAM, paired with 512GB or 1TB of SSD storage. Earlier this year, ZDNet reporter Mary Jo Foley shared that Microsoft could be working on a Surface-branded headset, and Windows Central also heard something about a smart speaker. This event takes place at a time that suggests they'll bring some hardware AND software to the party, including Surface devices and Windows-based updates. This rumor would confirm what was seen in the leaked images of the Surface Laptop 2 from MySmartPrice last month showing no USB-C port. Among all the Surface devices, only the Surface Book 2 comes with a USB Type-C port built in.
