Apple and Samsung have got the tech world talking, but Microsoft said, wait a minute, we’ve got things to show you.
On Wednesday (September 22), Microsoft had a lot to show tech enthusiasts at its Microsoft Surface event. As expected, the tech giant has unveiled a new Surface Pro 8, Surface Duo 2, now equipped with a camera and other cool features, and even a strange NEW flagship laptop that’s still as cool as hell. And much more.
So let’s get into it.
Surface Go 3
The Surface Go3 is Microsoft’s low-end Surface model for those who don’t want to break the bank for one of Microsoft’s fancy tablets. All new Intel processors power this new model to give it a little cachet.
Surface Duo 2 5G
Microsoft’s phablet is getting a big update that makes it very appealing to people who love a good phone that doubles as a tablet. The Surface Duo 2 features device updates that users of the first iteration of the Duo were clamoring for. The Surface Duo 2 now has 5G capability, nifty gaming features, a pretty decent screen, as well as a cool Glance bar that lets you know about your notifications and battery life when the device is close. It also works with the new Surface Slim Pen 2.
Surface Slim 2 Pen
Yaaaay, a new pen. Apple has its Apple Pencil, Samsung has the S Pen Pro, now Microsoft has the Surface Slim Pen 2. Both Apple and Samsung have claimed updates from their stylists because that’s what every device is, just with a different name, to make it feel like you. ‘write. Now Microsoft is making the same claim with built-in haptics designed to give you more tactile feedback when in use.
Ocean plastic mouse
Microsoft’s Ocean Plastic Mouse didn’t wow anyone unless you were Captain Planet and the Planeteers. The mouse is eco-friendly and is made from 20% recycled ocean plastic and 100% recyclable packaging. Don’t twist it. We are here to save the planet.
Surface adaptation kit
Everyone deserves to benefit from technology, and Microsoft is at the forefront of making their devices inclusive for everyone, and that energy continues. Microsoft presented its new Surface Adaptive Kit in a heartwarming presentation. The kit includes labels and port indicators that you can place on your Surface Pro for ease of use. There are even tools you can use to help you open the device. Well done, Microsoft.
Surface Pro 8
The Surface Pro 8 features significant redesigns from Microsoft’s Surface line. This time around, the Surface Pro 8 has a larger 13-inch touchscreen, two Thunderbolt 4 ports (hence a long USB-A port), thinner bezels and more. Yes, it also supports the new Slim Pen 2.
Surface Laptop Studio
This bad boy stole the show. Microsoft’s new flagship laptop, the Surface Laptop Studio, is its powerful new laptop, and its most important feature is functionality. This transformer has a hinge that allows users to bring the screen closer to them or convert it to “studio mode” so you can make some changes while using the Slim Pen 2. This device is so amazing that he almost made the host of the event cry. while he was talking about it. We are very serious.
