Microsoft is holding a Surface event next month. The software giant officially calls the event “Microsoft Fall 2022 Event‘, where it says it plans to ‘talk about devices’. The Microsoft event kicks off at 10 a.m. ET on October 12, just before Microsoft’s Ignite conference kicks off.

Microsoft’s invitation to the event includes a background-like image with watercolors and “save the date” written by what is likely a Surface Pen. The invite comes just hours after rumors of Surface Pro 9 and Surface Laptop 5 devices surfaced. Microsoft is reportedly planning to offer a Surface Pro 9 with the option of Arm or Intel processors, potentially marking the end of the Surface Pro X line.

A refresh for the Surface Laptop line also seems likely, with rumors of a Surface Laptop 5 on the way. Microsoft is also expected to introduce new green and light blue colors for the Surface Pro 9.

Microsoft has not held an in-person Surface event since the pandemic, and it appears that this event will also be online-only. It will be held hours before Microsoft kicks off its Ignite conference in Seattle, where it will hold its first major in-person event since the start of the pandemic.

Stay informed The edge on October 12, as we’ll be discussing all of Microsoft’s Surface announcements live as they happen.
