Meet Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Studio 2 and Surface Headphones

By / Chief Product Officer

 

New Surface devices, along with new innovations in Windows and Office 365, offer more performance and productivity across your whole life.

Today we are proud to share four new Surface products with the world. Products built for people.

We put our hearts and souls into making these products, for people who want to do more, dream more, and achieve more. We understand the way people work and live is changing, with different areas of our lives are blending together, and the need to spend our valuable time on the things that really matter is increasing. With that understanding, we build Surface products to empower people to accomplish these great things. And to do this, the technology needs to fade to the background so you can get into your most creative state, your flow. You need the right devices and technology that can travel with you, be ready when you are – whenever and wherever inspiration strikes.

That’s the power of Surface, Windows, and Office connected together through the cloud, creating the right instrument for you. We’ve designed them together to optimize every ounce, every pixel, and every line of code to empower you to be more productive and more creative. As you watch the videos below, you’ll see this… we obsess over every detail, every line of the device, every sound, every fit, finish and feel, creating a symphony with our hardware, software and intelligence experiences.

We’re pumped about our next generation of incredible Surface products and experiences.

Introducing Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2
We love to hear from our customers about why they love Surface. With Surface Pro and Surface Laptop we hear time and again how their lightweight and thin designs make them easy to carry, while the performance capabilities mean they can use their Surface for a huge range of activities whether they’re designing a PowerPoint for school, crunching numbers in Excel at work, or watching Netflix at home on the couch. We wanted to keep all the things we know customers love about Surface while giving them even more performance. Both of these incredible products come in an all new finish, a timeless and sophisticated matte black.

Surface Pro 6

Surface Pro 6 is the most powerful Surface Pro yet, introducing the latest 8th generation Intel® Quad Core™ processor. At more than 67 percent faster than 5th generation Surface Pro, we’ve redesigned Surface Pro 6 to pack in power but keep the portability, versatility and all-day battery we know our fans love.

Featuring our PixelSense™ Touch Display, Surface Pro 6 adapts to help you take your ideas to the next level and create your best work with Office 365* on Windows and features like intelligent inking. And to get more in their flow, customers can take advantage of helpful time savers, including password-free Windows Hello sign-in and Windows Timeline.

Surface Laptop 2

With boosted performance from the new Quad Core 8th generation Intel® processor, Surface Laptop 2 is an astounding 85 percent faster than the original Surface Laptop. Meticulously crafted with its premium design, PixelSense™ Touch Display, and best in class keyboard and trackpad, this new generation delivers the perfect balance of quiet beauty, performance and portability, without sacrificing the 14.5 hours of battery life you need to get through your day.

Every detail optimized for black
As a team we explore different finishes. And when we modeled our devices in this beautiful matte black, we fell in love. We knew we had to bring it to life for our customers. We obsess about the way this finish looks and feels in the same way we obsess about the sound of the kickstand and the quality of every pixel of the display. This is what brings the element of beauty to the product.
Every connector, radius, port, hinge, come together to bring an elegance that is stunning.

Introducing Surface Studio 2

Surface Studio 2 is the most powerful Surface ever. It’s built for creators who need vibrancy, high graphics performance, and fast processing, providing them with an immersive experience as the tech fades into the background allowing for space to focus. People who use Studio need high end performance, especially graphics performance. And Surface Studio 2 delivers with next generation Pascal graphics and 50 percent faster GPU.

One of the things we hear most from our fans is how much they love the vibrancy of the luminous display – an incredible floating sheet of pixels. And the new Surface Studio is 38 percent brighter, with 22 percent more contrast, ensuring whatever you create looks amazing. With 4,096 levels of pressure, tilt sensitivity for drawing and sketching, and best-in-class ink latency, Surface Studio 2 and Surface Pen were designed together to deliver the ultimate creative canvas.

Surface Headphones

We built Surface Headphones to complete the Surface experience. To help you get into your flow, wherever you are. Whether you’re in an open work space, a café or on the go, Surface Headphones help tune out or tune in wherever you are. They slip comfortably over your ears to surround you with spectacular sound quality and 13 levels of ambient noise control. Designed with collaboration in mind, there are 2 beam-forming microphones on each ear cup, 8 microphones in total, all helping you focus on the sounds you want to capture allowing for excellent call experiences. You can easily adjust volume and noise cancellation levels with new, intuitive on-ear dials.

And while Surface Headphones are optimized for Surface devices, they will pair with any Bluetooth enabled device so when you’re switching between PC and phone, you can stay connected to your music, meeting or call seamlessly. And voice-activated Cortana, available in the U.S. built in, is ready to assist for whatever you need.

Availability details + Surface All Access
Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Studio 2, are available for preorder in select markets beginning today with additional market availability expected in 2019*. Surface Headphones will be available in both the US and UK in time for the holidays. And we’re pleased to offer Surface All Access through our Microsoft Stores in the US where you can begin purchasing these new products starting Oct. 16. Surface All Access is a new way to purchase your favorite Surface product with accessories, Office 365, dedicated support, and Microsoft Store benefits for a single low monthly payment, starting at $24.99. We hope this allows you to choose the product that will best help you achieve your goals and ambitions.

Surface + Windows + Office built together for you
We all have goals, values, causes we care about and things we need to get done. In any given day we’re balancing all these factors across work, home, and everywhere in between – across all of your devices. In doing this we have moments of greatness – moments where everything lines up. And you need software and hardware that can adapt to your life, that’s perfectly tuned and ready when you are.

With features like Microsoft Launcher, the Your Phone App and Windows Timeline on Surface you can move seamlessly across all your devices and bridge the gap between your phones and your PC. We’re also evolving Office to ensure your ability to get things done is not limited by where you are, the time of day, or the device you’re using. Saving you time and allowing you to quickly collaborate with your co-workers with @mentions. While new intelligent inking, contextually aware PowerPoint Designer suggestions, new Ink Editor in Word features, and Ideas in Excel help you understand and visualize your data, allowing you to skip steps and save time.

These experiences are enabled by innovations across Office 365, Surface and Windows. Many can be accessed through the Windows 10 October 2018 Update — available today.

The Surface Journey
For six years, we’ve been on a journey with Surface. We’re so proud of the way people use our products and what they create with them on their own journeys. It’s inspiring to hear how they’re using Surface to change the world in all kinds of ways, realizing their inspiration, their goals, their dreams so they never have to miss an opportunity to achieve more. We can’t wait to see what you do with these new Surface products.
