Microsoft’s Surface chief Panos Panay recently posted on his Instagram account something of a teaser: an image of four Surface keyboards with the caption “30 hours to go”. The keyboards seem to be Type Cover colors with the Alcantara material, which is the same luxury fabric used on the company’s latest Surface Laptop.

This lines up with the photos well-known leaker Evan Blass revealed last week for what may be the new Surface Pro. One of those pictures displayed the new 2-in-1 device that looked like a new Type Cover in Alcantara.

When Panos Panay introduced the new Surface Laptop earlier this month. he made sure to emphasize how durable, comfortable, and warm the material is to the touch.

Microsoft invites everyone for more updates, information and live streaming from today’s event in Shanghai. On its news site, the company says that its event begins today at 4 a.m. PT/7 a.m. ET. Stay tuned for more information from the Microsoft event.
