Last month, the Microsoft Surface series, i.e., Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Studio 2, and Surface Headphones, were launched across Asia for customers in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan. Today Microsoft announced that they are bringing Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, and Surface Studio 2 to 20 new markets across the World. At the same time, Surface Headphones were launched in eight new markets.
Though Microsoft isn’t explicitly saying exactly which countries are getting new devices as part of the latest development, we can assume that the addition of 20 new markets is pretty huge, making the latest Surface devices available in more regions than before.
Furthermore, Microsoft announced that the Surface Headphones would go on sale in eight new markets in March. Also, the Surface Pro 6 and the Surface Laptop 2 are likely to be the devices most people are interested in buying, especially for the new black version that arrived with the second generation.

The Surface Pro 6 that has already arrived in many markets looks similar to the last year’s Surface Pro which has been upgraded to the Intel 8th gen core processor. Microsoft claims that the new Surface Pro 6 has an all-day battery life of up to 13.5 hours and is 67 percent more powerful than its earlier model. It touts a 12.3-inch PixelSense touchscreen display and will be available with up to 16GB RAM and 1TB of SSD storage.
The Surface Laptop 2, an updated version of the predecessor Surface Laptop, is an entry-level model with 8GB RAM, and the top-end model offers 16GB RAM. It also has an improved battery life that has been further improved with 14.5 hours for the Surface Laptop 2. The 13.5-inch PixelSense Screen on the Surface Laptop 2 has the same resolution as the one seen on its previous generation model, but the contrast ratio has been improved.
Surface Studio 2 is a premium desktop designed for creative professionals. Although Microsoft didn’t say what processor is inside the Surface Studio 2, it touts as the “fastest Surface ever made offering professional-grade power and performance.” Microsoft claims the display now provides 22 percent more contrast and is 38 percent brighter.
The Surface Headphones were designed by a large team of designers and engineers to make them very comfortable to wear. The design is engineered so that the earpads are plush, and the headband is nicely set to the user’s head without putting too much pressure.
Microsoft touts the headphone, saying that it is equipped with eight microphones, including four beamforming mics that would help make your voice sound clear on calls and issue voice commands using Microsoft’s Cortana digital voice assistant.
