We are confident that it is going to be a slobber knocker of an event.
Microsoft Might Also Debrief The Public On How Windows 10 Will Work For Smartphones
According to WPDang, Microsoft plans on showcasing a flurry a products during the month of October. The highly anticipated Surface Pro 4 will be incorporated with Skylake processors, which are fabricated on the company’s 14 nm process. There is also a possibility that the tech giant will also be announcing a slimmer version of its Xbox One console, but since there have been very few rumors surrounding this, we are not so sure that Microsoft will go through with this.
In addition to Surface Pro 4, the remaining two products that will serve as the highlight of the event will be Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. According to what we know so far, one device is going to sport a polycarbonate chassis, while the remaining one is going to sport a complete metal build. According to our previous reports, there is also a possibility that both handsets are going to sport a Triple LED flash coupled with a retinal scanner, and Type-C USB port.
As for the company’s Band 2, there is not much known about the device other than the fact that it will surpass its predecessor in functionality, look better in aesthetics and feel a lot more comfortable. While the company has not yet officially announced any press events for the month of October, it will be holding a Windows 10 related hardware event at Berlin's IFA conference during the month of September.
During this event, we might get to know more about the Lumia handset duo, along with how Windows 10 is going to change our experience on the smartphone side of things. For now, this is all the information that we have; when the IFA event kicks off, we will have more details available for you.
