Microsoft Teases Black Surface Devices Ahead of Hardware Event

Microsoft is expected to introduce refreshed Surface devices at a press event tomorrow. The company is expected to unveil the Surface Pro 6 and a new Surface Laptop device at the event, with some software-related announcements on the side.

Not too long ago, we exclusively reported that Microsoft’s new Surface devices will now be available in black. And now, Microsoft has seemingly confirmed our report on an official event page. The page, which has since been taken down, states that “Surface Goes Back to Black” which seems like the official campaign slogan for the new Surface devices.

“In April 2012, Microsoft launched the Surface RT, its sleek black chassis, detachable keyboard and integrated kick stand started a wave of innovation that has no signs of slowing down. Surface devices have inspired people to draw on their screens, work anywhere, collaborate across the world on 84inch Hubs, crank the volume with dial and even float their all in one screen up and down with a zero gravity hinge. It is safe to say the devices have come a long way in 6 years. But in October 2018, Surface goes Back to Black,” the page stated.

I, for one, am really excited about the return on the new black colors on the Surface devices, especially on the refreshed Surface Laptop. While I have been a huge fan of the burgundy Surface Laptop, a black version of the device would really look beautiful. I just hope the new black option simply isn’t plain black, though, as that would be quite bland. I am hoping for more of a “space grey” option that Apple does with its hardware, but that’s probably not going to happen. We shall see.

Just a reminder, though: Microsoft isn’t live streaming this event tomorrow, so keep your eyes locked at our site for all the official announcements coming live from NYC.
