Microsoft was planning to hold a traditional product launch event in the spring but the health issues around the world made that impossible. Microsoft recently announced that all of its events of the year are going virtual and it looks like the Redmond firm will unveil its next-generation flagship product via a digital event as well.
In addition to Surface Go 2, Microsoft will also unveil Surface Book 3 in the coming weeks, according to our sources.
A source, who wished to remain anonymous, told us that Microsoft originally planned to hold a virtual event to announce Surface Book 3 and Surface Go 2 in the last week of April.
Due to the health issues around the world, Microsoft’s Surface Book and Surface Go announcement could get pushed to May. The devices will likely start shipping a week or two later.
Microsoft’s most awaited Surface Book 3 is rapidly approaching and another third-party retailer has confirmed the reports.
UK retailer John Lewis accidentally advertised Surface Book 3 on Google, confirming that device is around the corners. The advertisement appears to have been taken down and it cannot be reproduced.
It’s also worth noting that Surface Book 2 is out of stock at John Lewis online store.
According to leaked retailer listings, Microsoft could launch Surface Book 3 with Intel Comet Lake chips (Intel Core i5-10210U and i7-10510U). These configurations could be used for both the 13.5-inch model and the 15-inch version.
Microsoft’s flagship convertible will come with memory options of 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB RAM and 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB SSDs. Like Surface Book 2, the next-generation will also come discrete GPUs and Microsoft could offer options from the Nvidia Quadro lineup.
Surface Book 3 prices reportedly range from US$2,186/£1,746 to around US$4,701/£3,753.
The rumour has it the Redmond-based tech giant will also announce Surface Dock 2 at some point “in the coming weeks.”
