Microsoft Surface event 2018: When is it and where is it?

The last time Microsoft used that color was the Surface Pro 2. There will be no livestream of the event. The tech giant has also highlighted some other specifications of the Surface Pro 6, including a double-digit battery life as well as a brand new display that could possibly contribute to that battery life.

Meanwhile, Microsoft says the Surface Pro 6 is 67% faster than its predecessor but with the same battery life (up to 13.5 hours).

From a company blog post: "Microsoft's first premium and smart headphone experience offer the attributes you have come to expect from Surface: premium design, expert craftsmanship, and integration with the services and experiences you love".

Frankly, I'm not sure if such minimal changes warrant giving the name Surface Pro 6 to. The device still comes with a standard USB 3.1 Type A port and not the modern USB Type-C connector. Also, it's worth noting that, while the base model ships with 128GB of internal storage, this can rise to 1TB depending on the options chosen. These devices are all getting new processors. Preorders for the new Surface Pro have just opened up on Microsoft's own Store, and prices start at $899 for the entry-level model. The video gives a good look at the Surface Pro 6 from all angles, including close-ups of its ports, the display, and the kickstand.

North and South Korea removing landmines along border
In 2015, two South Korean soldiers were maimed by what Seoul said was a North Korean landmine, an accusation the North denied. Past rapprochement efforts were often stalled after a standoff over the North's nuclear ambitions intensified.

As mentioned above, the Surface Pro 6 is armed with a quad-core chip, and we're guessing that the 2-in-1 features a Core i5 processor for the base version. It will start at 8GB RAM.

The company also announced the availability of the next version of its Windows 10 operating system. There's no information on its price at the moment. The new devices should pack Intel's 8th generation processors, but we'll find out more later today.

Microsoft has accidentally revealed that it will be bringing back the black Surface.

The new Surface Pro bears a striking resemblance to previous Surface Pro models. "Surface devices have inspired people to draw on their screens, work anywhere, collaborate across the world on 84inch Hubs, crank the volume with dial and even float their all in one screen up and down with a zero gravity hinge".
