Microsoft Reportedly Launching Lumia flagship duo, Surface Pro 4, Band 2 and Xbox One Mini in October
Microsoft is planning to unveil a range of new hardware soon, reports a Chinese blog WPDang. The site claims the software giant will hold a massive hardware launch event in October to announce two new Lumia handsets, the Surface Pro 4, and a Microsoft Band 2.
WPDang reports that its sources also suggest the launch of Xbox Mini console, but it seems unlikely considering the lack of rumors around it.
The Lumia phones to arrive are Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, both of which have been rumored for months. Most of the specs of the handsets have already leaked, though we still have to the final design yet.
Earlier reports suggest that the Lumia flagship duo will feature a polycarbonate chassis, be equipped with an iris scanner and support Continuum.
As for the Surface Pro 4, the report suggests it won’t be a drastic change from the Pro 3, although the device may feature a larger display size and Intel’s new Skylake processor.
If previous rumors are to be believed, the company is also planning Windows Hello support for the Surface Pro 4, plus it may introduce a refined Surface keyboard as well.
Little is known about the Band 2, but we expect design improvements that should also make for a sleeker device.
Microsoft has yet to officially announce any press events for October.
