With the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2's launch just a couple of days away, new rumours online are now suggesting that the notebook and the upcoming Surface Pro 6 might be absent of a particular port. As a means for both the Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6 to both connect to external displays, and to charge them.

Microsoft is holding a launch event in NY later today to announce new products.

Microsoft has accidentally revealed that it will be bringing back the black Surface. According to a WinFuture report, Surface Pro 6 will start with a Core m3-7Y30 processor and 4GB RAM.

As mentioned earlier, Microsoft is holding an event on October 2nd in NY.

Surface Pro series has been a benchmark for the high-end mobile PCs. The company may also bring the successor to the Surface Laptop that debuted in May a year ago and was launched in India last month. Specifically, both devices might not have USB Type-C ports on them.

"With this update, we'll be bringing new features and enhancements to the almost 700 million devices running Windows 10 that help people make the most of their time", Roanne Sones, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft wrote in a blog post last month.

The 2018 version of the Surface Laptop will likely appear with hardware very similar to its predecessor, much like Surface Pro.

Surface Laptop is expected to come with a processor at least as powerful as Intel Core i5-8250U quad-core SoC (1.6 GHz base clock, 3.6 GHz maximum).

Will Microsoft keep the Alcantara keyboard on the new Surface Laptop?

Both of those devices are tipped to ship in black colors, as seen in those leaked images mentioned. A price for the Surface Laptop 2 was not leaked alongside. Earlier this year, ZDNet reporter Mary Jo Foley shared that Microsoft could be working on a Surface-branded headset, and Windows Central also heard something about a smart speaker.

The lack of ports is something you're either willing to live with or not, but the ongoing lack of USB-C support is just laziness at this point.

Microsoft originally launched the Surface RT and Surface in a black coloured variant, but eventually switched to silver.
