The Next Web reports that ahead of tomorrow’s special Surface event in Shanghai, Microsoft’s Surface head Panos Panay has teased his Instagram followers with a snap of what looks very much like four new Surface Pro Type Covers, shown on a screen and clearly part of tomorrow’s presentation.
The Type Covers shown in Panay’s photo all look identical to the new colours and material unveiled recently for the Surface Laptop. It looks like Alcantara fabric is the new default for Surface Pro tablets as well as for the Surface Laptop, having previously been reserved for special edition Surface Pro Type Covers.
Most likely it will only be a relatively minor refresh for the Surface Pro range, most notably with new Kaby Lake processors, but still no USB-C or Thunderbolt ports. Expect lots of Surface Pro news from Microsoft tomorrow, and possibly even some surprises as well.
