They’re detailed below.

Aside from the new tablet with a new CPU and the affordable laptop, Microsoft also debuted a new mouse, keyboard and several other accessories. The tablet is more of an incremental upgrade from the previous device and also keeps its name. Let’s see what’s new:

It’s rather similar in performance with the SQ 1, based on other leaks. Its extras include WiFi 6 support and Bluetooth 5.0 support. Microsoft also promised a faster version of Microsoft Edge and a new Microsoft Teams, optimized for ARM.

A battery life upgrade is also promised, as well as a new finishing: Platinum. We also have a 13 inch PixelSense display with a 2880 x 1920 res, 8 or 16 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 15 hours of battery life. There are two USB-C ports here, one Surface Connect port and a nano SIM.
