Several rumors in the past pointed to a possible launch of new Surface devices in 2017, and now it appears as if these rumors could hold true. At the Microsoft campus located at Redmond, Washington, an interesting placeholder was seen in Building 88 seemingly teasing one or more Surface devices in 2017.

While there hasn’t been any form of announcements about new Surface products, the coming of several new Intel, NVIDIA and AMD products later in the year and in early 2017 is the perfect opportunity for new Surface products to keep the brand competitive.

We’ve come across rumors recently that claimed an all-in-one Surface device is due for 2016, but it now appears as if this device could hit store shelves in 2017 instead. This new rumor lines up well with another rumor: the Surface Phone. The rumor claims the possible Surface Phone could become available for consumers in 2017, though an exact date was not given.

Microsoft will likely hold an event before the end of the year so we can learn more about these devices before 2017 — if they’re real. Still, we see no reason for a host of 2017 Surface products to not be real seeing as the information was taken directly from Microsoft’s own campus.

Interestingly enough, there’s also a placeholder that says 2016 so chances are Microsoft might give us something to hold on to until 2017 arrives. Right now, we are quite intrigued at what this 2016 device could be. We think it could be a Surface 4 because Surface 3 fans are dying for an upgrade.

We have to consider, however, that Windows RT is dead and won’t be updated to Windows 10, meaning any plans for a Surface 4 is likely dead in the water as well.
