Every new Microsoft Surface device 

Here's a first look at pricing details, release dates, and retailer availability. 

Microsoft Surface Duo

  • Release date: Holiday 2020
  • Price: Not yet announced
  • Where to buy: Microsoft (when available)

Surface Duo is perhaps the most exciting device announced. It's a dual-screen, heavily skinned Android smartphone. Although Microsoft seems reluctant to call it a phone, it can handle calls. It has two 5.6-inch screens that unfold to 8.3 inches, and just like the new Surface Neo, it can be used in a variety of modes. 

Unfortunately, it's still in development and not quite ready for release.

Microsoft Surface Neo

  • Release date: Holiday 2020
  • Price: Not yet announced
  • Where to buy: Microsoft (when available)

Surface Neo is a dual-screen device that runs Windows 10X, a new version of Windows 10. It features a 360-degree hinge that connects two 9-inch screens, which open up to a full-size 13-inch display. Microsoft said it's built for productivity and multitasking like a PC, as it can run productivity apps and works with the Surface Pen and a Bluetooth mouse.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3

  • Release date: Preorder Oct. 2 | Available Oct. 22
  • Price: $999 for 13.5 inch | $1,199 for 15 inch
  • Where to buy: Microsoft | Best Buy

The new Surface Laptop 3 now comes in two sizes: 13.5 inches and 15 inches. 

The 13.5-inch model features 10th-generation Intel Core processors and is available in Sandstone and Cobalt in Alcantara or a machined aluminum all-metal finish. As for the 15-inch model, it has the new AMD Ryzen Surface Edition processors, a 20% larger glass trackpad, both USB-A and USB-C with fast charging, and "improved" front cameras.

Microsoft Surface Pro X

  • Release date: Preorder Oct. 2 | Available Nov. 5
  • Price: $999
  • Where to buy: Microsoft | Best Buy

Surface Pro X is Microsoft's take on iPad Pro. It has a 13-inch screen, is 5.33mm thick, and weighs 1.68 pounds, making it the thinnest and lightest Surface Pro device. It features Microsoft's SQ1 processor, which was co-designed with Qualcomm and offers 2 teraflops of graphics power. And its new Signature Keyboard offers pen docking for the Slim Pen.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7

  • Release date: Preorder Oct. 2 | Available Oct. 22
  • Price: $749.99
  • Where to buy: Microsoft | Best Buy

Microsoft has slightly updated the Surface Pro 6, with the new Surface Pro 7. It remains a versatile 2:1 device but now comes with a 10th-generation Intel Core processor, both USB-A and USB-C ports, and an all-day battery, among other things.

Microsoft Surface Earbuds

Surface Earbuds are wireless earbuds that feature touch and voice controls for music and calls, as well as "screen-free" integration with Office 365, so you can access your Outlook calendar and email with your voice and even do live, on-screen captions and translations in PowerPoint. Other features include an all-day battery life and a wireless charging case.

  • Release date: Late 2019
  • Price: $249
  • Where to buy: Microsoft (when available)
