Surface Boss Teases New Surface Pro Type Covers

In a further indication that we’re on the verge of a Surface Pro announcement of some kind, Surface boss Panos Panay today tweeted a photo of four new Type Covers from China:

Working session. 30 hours to go. #MicrosoftEvent #Surface #Shanghai

Yep. Now, Microsoft is leaking information about the new devices.

And based on the photo, it looks like we’re about to get four new Type Covers in Alcantara and colors. Like Surface Laptop.

You may recall that numerous images of the next Surface Pro, which will apparently be called—wait for it—Surface Pro, have just leaked.

And that I said a month and a half ago that the next Pro would be a minor refresh, with the same connectors and Kaby Lake inside.

And that Panos Panay was previously, and widely, misquoted for saying that there was no Surface Pro 5. He did suggest, however, that there would be an update without “meaningful change.” So a Surface Pro 4 refresh.

And that we’ve been waiting for this announcement for months. And that it is coming tomorrow. Finally.

More soon. Well, tomorrow. Probably.
