Microsoft will hold the “Microsoft Fall 2022 Event” on October 12 to launch the next generation of Surface devices. The invite for Microsoft’s upcoming event features a wallpaper-like image with different colors and “save date” on it that could be the next Surface Pen. The company hasn’t revealed what it will launch next month, but rumors are rife that we’ll see a Surface 9 Pro and a Surface Laptop 5. Apart from this, there could be more Surface devices for launch.
Surface Pro 9
The Surface Pro 9, according to rumours, will offer customers a choice between Arm and Intel processors, which also means that the Surface Pro X lineup will not go ahead. The Surface 9 Pro is expected to be a 2-in-1 with 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor or Arm-based Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 platform. The latter will support cellular connectivity, and this time it may feature support for 5G. According to winfutureThe design of the Surface Pro 9 could differ from its predecessor and could be something that the Surface Pro X lineup hints at.
WinFuture has reported that the Surface Pro 9 will come in a new “Forest” Green color and a “Sapphire” Light Blue color with the regular Black and Silver variants. The screen size could still be the same at 13.5-inches. The price of Microsoft Surface Pro 9 could start at €1,300, which is around Rs 1,03,600 and €100 more than the launch price of Surface Pro 8.
Surface Laptop 5
The other flagship product to be launched at the October 12 event could be the Surface Laptop 5. According to WinFuture, it has found no evidence that the upcoming laptop will have an AMD version, unlike the Surface Laptop 4, which has both Intel and AMD options. However, Surface hardware major Panos Panay recently took a selfie with AMD CEO Lisa Su, and it could be a major sign that the AMD-powered Surface Laptop 5 is on the cards. In this case, the upcoming SKU of the Surface Laptop 5 will use the latest AMD Ryzen 6000 series processors that were unveiled at CES 2022.
The Surface Laptop 5 will come in a larger 15-inch size and could start at €1,200 (approximately Rs.95,600), which is the price of the 13.5-inch model.
