Microsoft hints at Surface Book 2 design
The official Instagram account created for Surface released today apparently featured some promo images for the Surface Book 2. The design and the layout of the keyboard show that it is indeed a Surface Book, though the hinge appears to be somewhat different than the current model. However, people thought the picture might be from an older promo material.
Windows Central confirmed the photo belongs to some marketing material for the Surface Book 2. As it seems, the image (which is not a photo) belongs to a video that has been circulating through the entire company. The video supposedly was featured in meetings and departments since July, when the device was discussed. Many people have already seen the video and confirmed that the image comes from there.
Moreover, there have been many recent reports showing the company included a different design for the hinge in Surface Book 2. As such, it will not have a hinge gap like the current model has. This has an important effect on the device making it look better. Apparently, the reports also claim that the Surface All-in-One will have three different sizes. The Full HD version will have a 21-inch display, while the other two will feature 4K displays in 24-inch and 27-inch versions.
However, up until now, there hasn’t been much information available about the Surface Book 2 and the Surface AIO. It’s already known they will be running the new generation of processors from Intel, Kaby Lake. Moreover, the Surface AIO is designed for the living room.
Rumor has it that Microsoft will be introducing its new Surface device this year, most likely in September. The rest of the Surface devices will see their release most likely next year after the Windows Redstone 2 is launched.
