Microsoft has confirmed the schedule to be October 12, 7:30 IST – for its annual fall Surface hardware event. Redmond’s tech giant has officially named it, “Microsoft Fall 2022 Event,” where the company will host a live event. Microsoft sent invites for the event.
It will not be a traditional in-person event but rather an event that you can stream on your device, hints at the event’s webpage, “Save The Date”. The microsite also says, “Watch live to see what’s next” on a water-colored wallpaper.
The invite comes just hours after rumors of Surface Pro 9 and Surface Laptop 5 devices emerged. Microsoft is reportedly planning to offer a Surface Pro 9 with the option of Arm or Intel processors, potentially meaning the end of the Surface Pro X line.

Microsoft will not host an in-person Surface event due to the pandemic. Therefore, the event will be streamed online. A few hours after the event, the tech giant will host an in-person event titled, Ignite conference in Seattle, after a big break.
Microsoft will be going to launch a slew of new products at this Event
The Surface Studio 3 will be aimed at enthusiasts and designers. It will be interesting to see how Microsoft supercharges its hero product, which hasn’t got a major refresh for years. The original model made its debut in late 2016 and the second one came out in late 2018. Accessories for the Surface Studio 3, including a Surface Pen, Mouse, and Keyboard with functionality-upgraded keys were recently leaked, hinting at the launch of the creative-focused desktop computer.
October is going to be a busy month in the tech calendar. Amazon is holding an invite-only product event on September 28. Meanwhile, Google will debut its new Pixel 7 series and other products on October 5, followed by the Meta Connect metaverse event taking place on October 11. Apple is also rumored to hold its iPad and Mac-focused event sometime next month.
