Everything Microsoft revealed at its 2019 Surface event

There was even time for Microsoft to unveil some true wireless earbuds in the form of the Surface Earbuds, which are arriving later this year for the not-insignificant price of $249. Last time around we saw the surprise inclusion of the Surface Headphone amongst other things. Pre-orders are starting today with actual shipping happening on October 22.

It's been hard for Windows devices to break free of the Intel grasp, but Microsoft's giving it another shot with the new 13-inch Surface Pro X, a new tablet running Windows on an ARM-based Microsoft-custom version of a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the SQ1.

As the name suggests, the Surface Neo aims to create a whole new category of flexible, productive, and powerful gadgets.

Finally, a smartphone with Microsoft's interesting hardware backed up by the most popular mobile operating system and the Google Play Store.

Despite a shift towards its software and cloud computing business in recent years, Microsoft's Surface hardware line has remained popular with PC and tablet users globally.

As for the Surface Laptop 3, it will apparently come with 15-inch screen size.

Microsoft Corp.'s Surface tablets were expected to be the main highlight of its hardware event in NY today, but the company had other plans. Microsoft claims that the Surface Pro X provides 3x more power per watt than the Surface Pro 6.

Designed as the first Surface device to fit in your pocket, Microsoft's hybrid of Windows and Android will no doubt make the Surface Duo an enticing device for professionals or those looking to embrace the fold-up phone phenomenon.

The Duo will run Android - presumably whatever comes after Android 10, which introduced support for foldable screens. I wasn't able to take the processor THAT far, but it was able to handle web browsing, and opening some of the other apps in Windows 10. Pre-orders begin today, and the device will be available on November 5. Microsoft's proprietary charging connector is still here, though, promising fast charging (80% in less than an hour) while the battery life should stretch to a day. Microsoft said a modern OS would deliver seamless updates without any interruptions.

At the NY hardware event, Microsoft executives also took the opportunity to showcase new versions of two existing devices. The 13-inch PixelSense Display has a 1400:1 contrast ratio, 2880 x 1990 resolution, and 267 PPI. Inside, the Neo is powered by an Intel Lakefield processor and an 11th generation graphics engine.
