Microsoft appears to be working on new hardware that will be unveiled in the coming years. The report suggests that the Redmond giant is working on foldable Andromeda, Surface Pro 6, HoloLens 2, new Xbox Console and an affordable Surface tablet.

Today, the ever-reliable Microsoft watcher Walking Cat has revealed that the Surface Lingo is the codename of the upcoming device from the software giant, and this follows a previous report from Bloomberg announcing that new 10-inch Surface tablets could be released later this year.

Walking Cat claims that an upcoming Surface device is codenamed Lingo. He adds that the Lingo is most likely a device, while Gibson/Lexington are accessories for it.

Gibson is a TypeCover, and it will launch in Burgundy, Cobalt Blue, Platinum and Black colours. Lex/Lexington, on the other hand, is an unknown accessory that will come in Platinum, Cobalt Blue and Burgundy colours.

Microsoft’s Surface hardware lineup is exciting

All the different reports we saw this week suggest that the affordable Surface tablet will be unveiled in the summer, and it’s going to be a busy year for Microsoft, with the long rumoured Andromeda launching later this year as well.

A minor update for Surface Pro and Surface Laptop is also planned, and a report from The Verge revealed recently that HoloLens 2 could also be officially announced this year.

Surface Pro 6, on the other hand, will be unveiled next year but it will feature a whole new design. It’s worth mentioning that the software giant hasn’t really refreshed the design of its Surface lineup since 2014, so it will be interesting to see what Microsoft is cooking behind the closed doors.

It remains to be seen if the affordable Surface-branded Windows 10 will beat Apple in the tablet market, and out-innovate the iPad design.

The report suggests that the affordable Surface tablet will be unveiled in summer and the Redmond giant could hold a special event to introduce these new Surface tablets.

The next up is Microsoft’s Andromeda, a foldable mobile device, will be unveiled later this year with phone capabilities.

There are several good reasons to consider buying an Surface tablet instead of the other expensive tablet.
