Microsoft To ‘Heavily Redesign’ Surface Pro 6, Due Next Year

Surface Pro 6 rumored to launch in the moiddle of next year powered by the latest Intel processors

There was a bevy of activity a year ago with the launch of the Surface Laptop, the fifth-generation Surface Pro and the Surface Book 2.

If an affordable Surface could tap into powerful Qualcomm mobile chips, given how Microsoft and Qualcomm have been working together, or make use of Intel's lower-end but still capable Core i3 chips, then the device could find some traction.

ZDNet reports that Microsoft will in all probability keep the Surface Connector for another whole generation and is also working on a new Surface-branded headset that should look similar to the Jabra Evolve. We've also heard that a new Surface Pro 6 could be launching next year, and this follows a previous report from Bloomberg announcing that new 10-inch Surface tablets could be released later this year.

Pompeo: US hopes for 'major' North Korea nuclear disarmament by 2020
Pompeo insisted North Korea was committed to giving up its nuclear arsenal but said it would "be a process, not an easy one". That concession to Kim appeared to catch the Pentagon and officials in Seoul off guard, and some South Koreans were alarmed.

Both reports also reference codenames for the previously reported upcoming Xbox and HoloLens sequels, known internally as "Scarlett" and Sydney, respectively.

Plenty of uncertainty continues to hover over all these projects and products, but several trusted insiders expect a "family of small, cheaper Surface tablets" codenamed Lex or Libra to see daylight "later this year". It's also said that Andromeda will jumpstart a new category of pocketable devices that will be created by Microsoft's OEM hardware partners. There is talk that the next-generation Surface Pro model will be powered by the latest Intel processors and might include a USB-C port.
