The device still comes with a standard USB 3.1 Type A port and not the modern USB Type-C connector. Both the Surface Pro 6 and the Surface Laptop 2 will be pre-installed in the consumer versions of Windows 10 in S-mode.

If you want to get your hands on the Surface Pro 6, it will launch on October 16. Its recent Surface Book 2 and Surface laptop are known for their capable performance and premium design. According to a WinFuture report, Surface Pro 6 will start with a Core m3-7Y30 processor and 4GB RAM. If you're interested in a Surface Studio 2 for yourself and can afford the price of entry, you can preorder the PC at the Microsoft Store now. He claimed it would offer 13.5 hours of battery life. Not only does it come in a new "oxide transistor" color, the Surface Studio 2 now features a Pascal GPU with "6 TFLOPS" of performance, which should put it around a GTX 1070. This 2-in-1 format is aimed at people like doctors, pilots and students who need tablets for note-taking or reading, but a laptop for full functionality. Microsoft claims this has quieter typing than the previous device. Sadly, we can't that with Microsoft's "Surface Event", because there won't be a live stream.

In addition to the Windows 10 October 2018 update being launched, Microsoft also refreshed the majority of its Surface lineup today.

It's tough to say given the quality of the images we've seen so far, but the design of the Pro 6 also seems to be identical to its predecessor, and it sounds like it will launch with the same Surface Pen. "Cortana, a hands-free digital assistant, is built in to offer you proactive guidance, read you emails, or kick off your conference call". The original version suffered from a couple of issued though, including being launched right at the tail end of NVIDIA's Maxwell generation of GPUs, meaning as soon as it was available, it was also pretty much out of date. There's nothing stopping Microsoft from offering a USB-C port and a USB-A port, thereby giving users to use either standard.
