Microsoft announced yesterday that they will be hosting an event towards the end of October in London. The event titled, “Future Decoded,” is scheduled to take place in a span of three to four days. According to a report by Engadget, the underlying theme of Microsoft’s upcoming program will be their Surface Products. One is also led to believe that the company might finally take the wraps off its highly-anticipated Surface Phone.

Everything you need to know regarding the event

According to a report by The Verge, Microsoft is expected to unveil at least one Surface hardware at the event.

The firm last updated its Surface line-up with the introduction of its fifth-generation Surface Pro laptop in June this year. The company told its fans at that time that the company will also be launching a (built-in) LTE version of its Surface Pro towards the end of this year. It appears that the company might use the October event as an opportunity to introduce the device. It comes across as slightly disappointing as the company has long been rumored to be working on Surface Phone. It would be great to finally be able to see the Windows-powered smartphone.

There might be more to the October event, though. According to a report by Tech Crunch, the firm might bring its Surface Book update as well.

The last time they renewed their Surface Book line-up was in 2016. A new installation has been expected ever since. Along with this, they are rumored to refresh its Surface Hub software too. There’s a rumor suggested by Tech Radar, which states that Panay may take the wraps off products running on ARM chips.
