Just hours from now, Microsoft will take to the stage in NY to announce new Surface devices at what has become its annual fall Surface event. However, WinFuture states that the entry Surface Pro 6 will cost the same as the existing entry-level model (€899) due to the RAM jumping from 4GB to 8GB. In addition to the updated colors, the devices, along with the Surface Studio, are expected to receive minor updates in the form of refreshed internals, such as the inclusion of the new eighth-gen quad-core Intel chips, an upgrade from the dual-core seventh-gen chips now present in the Laptop and the Pro. Those include the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2, along with the Surface Studio 2 and the surprise unveiling of the Surface Headphones. The Surface Pro 6 also comes with a new thermal system designed for the new quad-core Intel processors that also deliver 50% faster graphic performance. It wouldn't even need to take up more room - not if the company ditched the Surface Connect port. Indian Express, citing a Vietnamese website which uploaded an unboxing video of the soon-to-be-launched Surface Pro 6, reported the leak. The company will reportedly only be updating the processors in the two devices, while the rest of the features will remain the same.

In mere hours, Microsoft is expected to pull the curtain back on a number of refreshed Surface devices. Sadly, we can't that with Microsoft's "Surface Event", because there won't be a live stream. It is safe to say the devices have come a long way in 6 years. Having been criticized roundly in 2017 for offering a minor update to the Surface Pro 4 with the Surface Pro (2017), Microsoft is more-or-less doing exactly the same thing again, at least as far as the physical chassis and design are concerned. According to the report, the newly refreshed lineup will miss a "complete overhaul".
