Microsoft will host a press event on October 2, introducing various hardware updates for Surface. Besides, there will be a big surprise when rumors are suspected. We're talking about the expected updates for the Surface Pro and Surface laptop product lines, as well as some Surface 2-in-1 devices that are new to the Microsoft product line and based on AMD and ARM chips. The latter is also related to another type of Windows 10 experience that could allegedly drive Windows on ARM devices.
The surprise announcement could be in the form of Centaurus, the code name of Microsoft's alleged dual-screen interface. It is unlikely that the device will hit the market this year, but Microsoft could still envision it to demonstrate its progress on this particular form factor. While we wait for Microsoft's launch event, we can tell you what to expect from the upcoming Surface Pro 7 in terms of specifications and pricing.
