Microsoft unveiled the new Surface Pro in Shanghai. The new hardware will be an iterative upgrade and won’t feature any design changes, but will feature many fans will find exciting.

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.

Last year, the Signature Type Cover was revealed as the first Surface Pro detachable keyboard featuring Alcantara, a material that has become one of Microsoft’s favorites/

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.

It’s nice to see that Microsoft plans on introducing some consistency between its various Surface devices. More luxury Type Covers might not be exactly what fans want in the successor of the Surface Pro 4, but it will definitely help the Surface brand to maintain its premium looks.

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.
