Black Surface accidentally leaked by Microsoft

Microsoft Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2 Leak Tips Specifications and Price Ahead of Launch

In mere hours, Microsoft is expected to pull the curtain back on a number of refreshed Surface devices.

Microsoft is expected to unveil newer versions of the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop on Tuesday. The odd part is that the Surface Book 2 and Surface Go devices both have USB-C ports and not offering them on the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop would be a unusual omission.

Microsoft is widely expected to launch the Surface Pro 6. Its recent Surface Book 2 and Surface laptop are known for their capable performance and premium design. Users will be able to configure their notebooks just like in previous years, with RAM going up to 16GB, storage going up to 1TB of SSD, and up to Intel Core i7 chips. There's not even USB-C support in store for the new devices, something that's always been missing. 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.

Surface Laptop 2 will retain the form factor of the predecessor but will improve in terms of specifications. The original Surface Laptop shipped with an Alcantara keyboard, but it seems that not everyone is a fan of the material, and there are still some questions about its long-term durability.

When it comes to specs, the entry-level Surface Laptop 2 will pack an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM instead of 4GB, and 128GB of storage.

The lack of ports is something you're either willing to live with or not, but the ongoing lack of USB-C support is just laziness at this point.

Since introducing us to the Windows as a Service model, Microsoft has gone from an aggressively ambitious strategy to a more mature one in the past year or so. 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. Microsoft previously said this Summer that the LTE variant would be available later this year, and the Redmond giant might want to take advantage on the upcoming holiday season to sell more units of its most affordable Surface model. This version of the device will also likely come in black.
