Microsoft has announced it’s New York City event, where the company says it will reveal “what’s next for Windows 10.” This is being thought to be the new Surface desktop that was tipped earlier. The event will kick off on October 26 this year at 10am EDT (5pm EAT) and will be live streamed.
According to NDTV news, apart from software-related announcements and incremental updates to certain features in Windows 10, Redmond based-software company is expected to showcase an all-in-one (AIO) PC under its Surface brand, the ‘Surface all-in-one device‘ which was rumored in the third quarter this year.
The upcoming AIO under Surface branding dubbed “Cardinal”, as per the earlier report, is expected to be showcased in three screen sizes – 21-inches, 24-inches, and 27-inches.
Rumors claim that the company might unveil all three at the event or at least one will be showcased. Unfortunately, the specifications of the alleged AIO PC have been successfully kept under wraps and speculations will likely begin as we approach closer to the event.
Microsoft is said to be launching the Surface AIO PC as a consolation of sorts as the unveiling of the second-generation Surface Book was reportedly shifted from the second half of 2016 to first half 2017 due to delay in CPU shipments by Intel.
Previous reports have already suggested that Microsoft is working on a Surface Phone which is said to debut in early 2017.
