There’s a big night ahead for Microsoft as the US technology firm readies itself for some major announcements.
This hardware event is taking place in New York at 9pm BST with the launch of an upgraded Surface Laptop and Surface Pro 6 the headline news.
Microsoft sent out invites to media last month with the company simply saying a “moment of your time.”
Although there’s no confirmation, it’s likely these new laptops will feature more power, improved displays and longer battery life.
That’s all clearly good news for the Windows 10 faithful who might be looking to upgrade their portable devices.
However, a recent set of leaks may also reveal one disappointing feature.
It seems that Microsoft’s new Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6 won’t include any USB-C ports.
USB-C is fast becoming the standard for charging and data transfers.
In fact, Microsoft includes these ports on its Surface Book flagship and new, cheaper, Surface Go tablet.
But, if the latest rumours are true, there will be no sign of these sockets on the new products.
According to images leaked by mysmartprice, the Surface Laptop 2 will only include a standard USB port, Mini DisplayPort, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Surface Connect port.
This seems like an odd decision from Microsoft especially as some of their other devices have taken the leap to USB-C.
This port has some big advantages including faster transfer speeds and the ability to charge and plug-in accessories from a single socket.
Some firms, including Apple, haven even taken things to the extreme by only including this port on their devices and nothing else.
It’s unclear exactly what features will be included on the Surface Laptop 2 or Surface Pro 6 but Express.co.uk will bring you full news as it happens.
Ahead of the brand new update, Microsoft recently announced some huge Windows 10 news.
The firm revealed the software is installed on over 700million devices across the globe.
Such news emerged during Microsoft’s Ignite 2018 press conference in Florida, according to On MSFT.
Those who have made the switch will also be getting a bunch of new features later this month with the October 2018 update that is presumed to arrive very soon.
The newest version of the software is set to bring even more additions.
At the start of September Microsoft officially unveiled the “Windows 10 October 2018 Update” that should make dramatic changes on all computers running the operating system.
More news on this could also be revealed tomorrow.
