Microsoft unveiled a handful of amazing new products and announced several new updates and features for their previous designs at a media event last Tuesday. Surprising new products include the new Microsoft Band, the flagship smartphone Lumia 950 and 950 XL, Surface Pro 4, and the much-awaited Surface Book, according to Mac Rumors.
Microsoft Band 2
The new Microsoft Band 2 includes ?a new curved screen with durable Corning Gorilla Glass 3? with an improved touch display. It has also integrated the new Cortana that lets users interact with the Band and speak with it to send texts, make reminders, and other tasks on the new Band, shared by Mac Rumors. Microsoft Band 2 has also a new barometer that you can use whether you?re hiking or climbing the top of any mountain.
Lumia 950 and 950 XL
Microsoft has also announced their new flagship smartphone, the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, which will sport a 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch display, respectively. It will also feature the new Glance Screen that ?showcases important pieces of information when a user pulls the phone out of his or her pocket, without the need to interact with the device directly and without using battery life,? posted by Mac Rumors. Both of the smartphones will have a USB Type-C connector that lets you charge up to an amazing 50 percent within a span of 30 minutes.
Surface Pro 4
The new Surface Pro 4 claims to be the ?thinnest, most powerful core PC? to date according to Microsoft. The new device will have a 12.3-inch display and will include a .4 mm-thin Gorilla Glass cover for protection. It will also have the new Surface Pen with 1,024 points of pressure and an eraser on the tip which allows you to activate different type of actions when held down, shared by Mac Rumors.
The Surface Book will be Microsoft?s first ever laptop which will mainly feature the removable screen that can also be used as a tablet together with Microsoft?s Surface Pen. The screen will have a 13.5-inch display with a pixel density of 267PPI which is optically bonded to the glass. To simply put, it?s going to look awesome.
The ultimate laptop from Microsoft will also have a full sized, backlit keyboard for quick and natural typing. Simplicity and high-performance is its main criteria, combining a 6th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processor with up to 16GB of memory which will also include an optional discrete graphics chip, shared by the Verge.
