It’s been a while since Microsoft announced any new Surface hardware, but the company is apparently cooking up a few exciting new products. A report from WindowsCentral offers a few details on the upcoming Surface Book 2 and the company’s rumored all-in-one PC.

The upgraded Surface Book will reportedly feature a redesigned fulcrum hinge to remove that weird gap between the display and keyboard when the laptop is closed. It’s also expected to pack Intel’s upcoming Kaby Lake processor, which will apparently launch later this year. We could see the Surface Book 2 unveiled as soon as this fall.

As for the Surface AIO, Microsoft is allegedly testing three different size options: a 21-inch Full HD display, a 24-inch 4K display and a 27-inch 4K display. However, it’s unclear if the company will offer all three options or just one. WindowsCentral notes that the design is “elegant” and you’ll want to show it off in your living room.

The report also briefly mentions the Surface Pro 5. It’s unclear if the fifth-generation device will actually launch this year, and if it does it could be a pretty minor refresh. That might include a Kaby Lake processor and a few other internal upgrades, but not much else.
