In addition to these images, French blog Frandroid claims it has seen images of the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3, both of which are expected to debut at the event.

However, there is also the prospect that, rather than the Surface Pro 7, the images could show an all-new Surface 7, which has also been the subject of speculation recently.

Meanwhile, Microsoft tipster WalkingCat (@h0x0d) disseminated some promotional images from Microsoft for the upcoming event that use the tag line "Anything but ordinary". The larger laptop could run on an AMD chip, a first for Microsoft's Surface device lineup.

For the Surface Pro 7, there are new colors but the bigger update is that the device now has USB-C along with a Type-A port. So naturally, retailers are offering some killer deals on the Surface Pro 6, which despite its age remains one of the best 2-in-1 laptops around.

Microsoft is also rumored to be working on a dual-screen Surface device. Traditionally priced at $1,329, that's a whopping $429 off list and the lowest price we've ever seen for this Surface Pro 6 bundle. The only difference would be the ports on the device itself. Though it lacks USB-C and Thunderbolt ports, they gave it a 4.5 out of 5 star rating for its speedy quad-core performance. From these images, the Surface Laptop now moves closer to looking like a MacBook Pro. In terms of ports, the Surface Pro 6 is equipped with a Surface Connect port, a USB 3.0 port, a mini DisplayPort, a headphone jack, and microSD slot. No images of the right side were provided by Even Blass. Just like the 15-inch Surface Laptop, the Alcatarna material is now gone. The detachable keyboard is also making a comeback, and while the design seems to have been retained, the internals should have been upgraded.
