Microsoft will announce its next-generation Surface tablets on September 23rd

Microsoft has begun to send out invitations to the press for a Surface-related event in New York City on September 23rd. AllThingsD reports that the company will be introducing its second-generation Surface products, which could include a revised Windows RT version and a new Pro model.

There won’t be a Surface “mini”, however. It was originally believed that Microsoft would introduce a 7- to 8-inch version of the Surface, but reports suggest that this won’t be seen at the upcoming September event. Microsoft is instead expected to announce a Windows RT Surface featuring Nvidia’s Tegra 4 SoC, as well as an improved display with a 1080p resolution and a full-size USB 3.0 port. The Surface Pro, meanwhile, will reportedly include a new low-power Haswell processor along with a “refined” kickstand.

It’s not clear if Microsoft intends to change the overall design of its Surface tablets, but expect them to be running Windows 8.1 when they’re announced later this month. We’ll bring you all the news from the event as it happens.
