What Microsoft is going to announce
Microsoft has been very secretive about the information its going to reveal at this Windows 10 event. Last year, for example, the company briefly described the event prior to its start, but this year’s invite is very enigmatic.
Although rumors suggest Microsoft is going to introduce new Windows hardware, don’t expect to see the elusive Surface Phone, a new generation Microsoft Band, a Surface Pro 5 or a Surface Book 2. However, the Redmond giant is expected to introduce the “Surface Cardinal”, which should be a Surface All-in-One device running Windows 10.
Speaking of Surface devices, Microsoft could also announce a Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book updated with newer processors. The company is expected to also highlight a series of OEM devices, but no further details are available. It’s possible that Microsoft will introduce a new Windows 10 phone, but all this is speculation that should be taken with a grain of salt.
What Windows 10 fans hope to hear
- A high-end Window 10 Mobile phone
The current Windows 10 phone models, including the Elite x3, haven’t been very popular among users. According to AdDuplex, Lumia 550 and Lumia 535 remain the most popular Windows phones, while the HP Elite x3 is in the thirty-sixth position. It appears that the Windows 10 phone models currently offered aren’t really that appealing to users. Could the Alcatel Idol 4s with Windows 10 be more successful?
- VR made accessible to the general public
Virtual reality technology is very popular, yet very few people can actually afford to purchase Microsoft’s HoloLens. Many Microsoft fans hope the company will reveal new plans to make VR more accessible to the general public.
- Cortana customization options
Cortana is a popular Windows 10 tool, with more than 6 billion queries generated since the operating system was launched. Some users actually suggest Cortana should have the option to load celebrity voices. While that’s highly unlikely to happen, new Cortana improvements could be announced today.
