Microsoft’s Surface Pro 6 will reportedly be ‘heavily redesigned’ for 2019 debut

Microsoft is reportedly planning a big redesign to the Surface Pro next year. ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley reports that the Surface Pro 6 (or whatever it will be called) isn’t arriving until mid-2019, but will be “heavily redesigned.” It’s not clear what this design will entail, but Microsoft is also reportedly readying a refresh for this fall with Intel’s latest 8th-generation processors. Separately, Thurrott.com reports that the Surface Pro 6 is codenamed Carmel.

ZDNet speculates that a Surface Laptop might arrive this fall with Intel’s latest processors, but there’s no confirmed reports of the addition of USB-C on the refreshed Surface Pro or Surface Laptop. It would make sense for Microsoft to refresh both devices with USB-C, especially as the company recently introduced its Surface Book 2 with a USB-C port. Microsoft will likely keep its Surface Connector for another generation, though. Microsoft is also reportedly readying a new Surface-branded headset. ZDNet reports that the mystery device is similar to a Jabra Evolve.

The latest Surface rumors follow a Bloomberg report last month that revealed Microsoft is working on $400 Surface tablets to better compete with Chromebooks and iPads in education. The new Surface tablets will reportedly include 10-inch displays, USB-C for charging, and be 20 percent lighter than existing Surface Pro models.
