Microsoft's dual-screen Surface Neo is a vision of the future

Microsoft Surface event LIVE updates Surface Laptop 3 Surface Pro 7 and Surface on ARM expected

Microsoft Surface Event is scheduled for 2 October at 10 am ET

Microsoft announced the new Surface Laptop 3 on Wednesday at its Surface event in NY.

That was our first reaction to Microsoft's unveiling of its new Surface Neo device this morning, with two side-by-side 9-inch screens and a fold-up keyboard that turns it into a small laptop. The Surface Pro 7 will reportedly come with USB-C connector instead of Mini DisplayPort and will be powered by a 10th-gen Intel Core CPU. Describing the Surface Duo, Panay said it's "not only the new Surface, it's also a new category". Not to be outdone by the Apple Pencil, Microsoft just unveiled its Slim Pen. Pre-orders begin today, and the device will will be available on October 22.

The new Surface Laptop 3 will have an aluminum exterior finish, "instant on" and a bigger trackpad.

Trump considers the elimination of Chinese companies from United States stock exchanges
A major supplier of Huawei, Micron Technology Inc. has forecast first-quarter profit even below Wall Street's targets. On trade news, mixed messages have heightened uncertainty about the prospect of the US-China trade war.


Under the hood, meanwhile, the Surface Duo sports Qualcomm Inc.'s Snapdragon 855 processor, the same chip that powers the Galaxy Fold.

Still, the company hasn't revealed too much about its new handheld, so we're anticipating more news and rumors to surface (har) before the Duo launches in late 2020.

"Surface Duo is the best chance Microsoft has ever had to drive success in smartphones", Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, told SiliconANGLE. And unexpectedly, that scaled all the way down to a phone-sized device called the Surface Duo - a dual 5.6-inch display smartphone running full-fledged Android. When paired with the Surface Pro X, you can slot the pen in a cradle above the keyboard to keep it charging on the go. This is just one of the ways the Windows 10X software supports the new form factor. Its Surface Earbuds have a dual direction microphone array, with 24 battery life. Pre-orders begin today, and the device will be available on November 5. However, it's now perplexing as to why the platform as it existed didn't have the right ingredients for Microsoft.

The Surface Laptop 3 13.5-inch model will be available for a starting price of $999, while the 15-inch model starts at $1,199. An integration with Spotify will make it possible to start playing music instantly by tapping a touch-sensitive section of the earbuds three times. Inside, the Neo is powered by an Intel Lakefield processor and an 11th generation graphics engine.

"I believe the third time's a charm for Microsoft and smartphones as conditions for a Surface smartphone's success have turned in favor of the company", said analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy.
