Microsoft has, in recent years, maintained an annual cycle for launching new products in its Surface range and 2019 is no exception. So on 3 October it will reveal its latest tablets, laptops and other devices and you can catch the unveilings live.

At a glance:

We already know most of what to expect and the latest leaked images – via @evleaks – appear to confirm rumours that Microsoft will launch a Surface Pro 7, two Surface Laptop 3 models and a Surface 7 tablet with an ARM processor instead of the usual Intel chip. That could be a rival the latest iPad Pro.

It may also show off a dual-screen device that it has been working on, codenamed Project Centaurus. That might not get an official launch: it could be a progress update. We’ll have to wait and see.

When is the Microsoft Event start time?

The event is happening on Wednesday 3 October 2019 at 10am EDT. That’s 3pm in the UK and 4pm in Europe.

Where can I watch the Surface Event live stream?

Microsoft has set up a dedicated page on its website where you can watch the Surface Event launch. Alternatively you can follow the announcements live on Twitter on the @Surface account.

What else will Microsoft talk about?

It’s possible we’ll get a look at the cut-down version of Windows, which could be called Windows Lite. This might run on the rumoured ARM-based tablet, but could also be used on other tablets and might well be positioned to rival iPad OS and Google’s Chrome OS.
