Though, the company is planning to change that as it is getting ready to introduce its Windows 10 Mobile platform.
The event will be live-streamed from Microsoft’s website on October 6th at 10 a.m Eastern Time.
The invite sent to media doesn’t provide much information about the event, but simply reads, “We have some exciting news to share about Windows 10 devices“.
Microsoft may announce the new Surface Pro 4 tablet at this event. These according to some reports are also the last phones that were developed under Stephen Elop, the ex-Nokia CEO who had joined Microsoft post the acquisition of the devices and services group to head hardware at the company.
Though it’s a long shot, we believe, Microsoft may very well launch a 12.9-inch or a larger-sized Surface Pro 4 variant to compete with recently released Apple iPad Pro. The Surface pro was also rumored to be coming with a higher resolution screen that will come in two sizes, namely a 12-inch and a 14-inch model, both possibly coming with a fingerprint sensor. The Surface Pro 3 ended up being a critical and financial success for Microsoft despite being a half-baked device. And it looks like that world is about to expand with even more 2-in-1 choices thanks mainly to Microsoft taking the lead with its Surface and Surface Pro products. The device is also said to have a rear camera of 5MP, along with a 1.2MP front facing camera.
Microsoft released its Windows 10 operating system, which is designed for different kinds of computers, in late July.
The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL have been rumoured for months now, and is expected to make an appearance at the same event.
Summer was all about software for Microsoft, and in a few short weeks, the company will focus on promoting its new hardware.
Lumia 950 XL is expected to flaunt a 5.7-inch QHD display and a better Snapdragon 810 chipset while keeping the same amount of RAM at 3GB. The leaks also suggest that the phones will be able to scan the iris of a user’s eye using infrared, which will provide a security method of logging in to the phone.
