Black Surface accidentally leaked by Microsoft

Microsoft MSFT announced a new Surface Pro 6 convertible laptop during a press conference in New York City on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Microsoft says the Surface Pro 6 is 67% faster than its predecessor but with the same battery life (up to 13.5 hours).

The Surface Laptop 2 is available in black, burgundy, platinum and blue, while the Surface Pro 6 comes in black and platinum. Here is everything you need to know about the latest Surface product from Microsoft.

In terms of hardware in the Surface Laptop 2, Microsoft will reportedly incorporate the cheapest variant with an Intel Core i5-8250U processor, clocked up to 3.6GHz, paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB PCIe NVMe SSD.

As mentioned above, the external design of the Surface Pro 6 remains largely unchanged thanks to the trademark hinge and aluminum casing.

On the inside, however, Microsoft has mixed things up with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics and Intel's 7th Gen Core i7-7820HQ processor. Overall, it weighs 1.7 pounds, boasts the familiar 12.3-inch display and up to 16GB of RAM. The tablet has one USB port, a micro-SD card slot, a headphone jack, and a port for charging. In comparison, Surface Laptop had just 4GB of RAM. Again from The Verge, "This year's refresh appears to be nearly entirely a spec update". USB-C still - surprisingly - isn't supported.

The keyboard is covered in Microsoft's "Signature Alcantara" fabric, making it even quieter than before. Panay suggested it's 85 percent faster than the original Surface Laptop, and said it offers 14.5 hours of video playback. The display, powered by 13.5 million pixels, is nearly 40 percent brighter, however, with more contrast. You also get a 2 terabyte solid state drive. Among all the Surface devices, only the Surface Book 2 comes with a USB Type-C port built in. Perhaps most impressive as "app mirroring", which be will a feature in a future Windows 10 update that lets you see mobile apps (on Android) on Windows 10. Surface Headphones offer a smarter way to listen, with spectacular rich audio and hands-free calling.

By contrast, the Surface Laptop 2 is noticeably revamped, in more ways than just the processor.
