A new report claims that Microsoft is planning to hold a special Surface hardware event in the spring this year where it’s going to show off some new products. However, the report does mention that the Surface Book 2 will not be launched at this event. Fans of the first Surface Book will surely be expecting the company to unveil the successor at its next hardware event but if there’s any truth to this report we may not see it in the coming weeks.
Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet reports that Microsoft is going to conduct a Surface hardware event in the spring which means that it’s going to take place in the near future. However, it’s also mentioned that the Surface Book 2 won’t be making an appearance.
Previous reports have suggested that the Surface Book 2 is going to be clamshell notebook without a display that can be detached. It was originally expected to be announced by the end of April but the latest report says that since it’s “not quite ready yet,” it won’t be unveiled at the upcoming event.
The first Surface Book was launched back in October 2015 and Microsoft added a new performance base option in October last year. The device is clearly due for a refresh and whether or not we’ll have to wait until October this year remains to be seen.
Microsoft is yet to announce when its Surface event for the spring is going to take place. Hopefully, it will have more to share with us soon.
