In a hardware event next month, Microsoft is reportedly planning to unveil a new all-in-one Windows 10 PC. Traditionally, Microsoft’s October event has always been dedicated to its Surface brand of PC’s and Notebooks. Last year, the company surprised everyone when it launched the new Surface Book in October 2015. The next gen Surface Book won’t come this year rather it is now scheduled for early 2017.
On the other hand, ZDNet reports that Microsoft could just renew the internals of existing Surface Pro and Book models. Not only this, the report also states that the company is allegedly working on a Windows 10 all-in-one PC which is codenamed – Cardinal. If rumors are to be believed, this PC will be a lot similar to Surface Hub. Cardinal, according to ZDNet, will come in three display options – 21 inch, 24 inch and 27 inch with the Perceptive Pixel screen technology which in-fact was seen in Surface Hub.
Other specifications has not been out yet. Microsoft has also not confirmed anything about the event yet but report suggests that the event is codenamed Project Rio and will most probably take place in late October. The exact date is likely to be October 26. Contrary to the codename, the event is most likely to happen in NY following the pattern from last year.
Though Surface Book and Surface Pro has done pretty well up till now, still company is hoping for better results. On the other hand, Microsoft’s Xbox One S has been facing a lot of competition from its arch rival PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro so the company is certainly looking to win hearts in the PC segment.
