Apple and Google both dominated September with two huge events, unveiling a whole slate of new devices across multiple products categories. But not to be left out, Microsoft is hosting its own event today in New York City. As with the other media events this fall, we’re expecting several new hardware announcements from Microsoft today, but you won’t have to wait much longer to find out.
Read on to find out how you can watch the show live.
If you read our comprehensive preview of the event yesterday, you probably already know what Microsoft has in store for this event, but just in case you missed it, I’ll cover the highlights.
The star of the show will undoubtedly be the Surface Pro 4, an upgraded tablet with a higher resolution, a new Intel Skylake processor and potentially a brand new design.We’ve seen plenty of leaks leading up to the event, but there’s a chance that Microsoft might have a few surprises in store.
Both the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are pegged to make appearances at the show as well, resuscitating Microsoft’s flagship smartphone lineup. Whether or not two Windows 10 mobile devices will be able to compete with the Galaxy S6, the iPhone 6s and the recently announced Nexus 5X remains to be seen, but with all the buzz surrounding Windows 10, we’re cautiously optimistic.
Finally, Microsoft is expected to bring the Microsoft Band 2 to the event as well — because there weren’t enough fitness bands on the market already. But all joking aside, the original Band was relatively well-received, so we’re interested to see how the company will present its sequel.
As for what else Microsoft is bringing to the stage in NYC, we’ll know in just a few minutes. The big Microsoft press event is set to kick off at 10:00 p.m. EDT, 7:00 a.m. PDT, and Microsoft will be streaming all the action at its website, so click here to watch the event live.
