Microsoft has announced the availability for Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 will commence from today i.e. January 28, 2019, in India via e-commerce platforms (Amazon and Flipkart) and select retail stores of Croma, Reliance, Vijay Sales, and other retailers. The devices will be available for commercial/enterprise customers through authorised resellers.

The next generation of Surface devices aims to deliver incredible experiences and enhanced productivity for individuals on-the-go. Microsoft states that with the power of Surface, Windows and Office, connected through the cloud, users are empowered to be more creative with their choice of Surface devices.

While the refined exterior may look familiar, Surface Pro 6 features redesigned architecture under its hood that delivers great power. The quad-core, 8th Generation Intel Core processor device is an instrument of versatility, portability and power. It is 1.5 times faster than its predecessor while offering the same all-day battery life.

Surface Pro 6 features a 12.3-inch PixelSense display that is perfect for rendering designs on photo editing software, or for binge-watching serials on your favourite streaming apps.

For users who use Surface for ideation, they can continue to lean on the new generation to take their ideas to the next level by combining digital inking features and Surface Pen with everyday Artificial Intelligence (AI) features available on Office 365. With helpful time-saver features on Windows 10, including the password-free Windows Hello sign-in and Windows Timeline, users can get more done on their Surface Pro 6.

The device features a 165-degree kickstand, and Surface Pro weighs just 770 grams, making it a desirable productivity device that can be used at any location. Add in the Signature Type Cover and Surface Mouse, and Surface Pro 6 immediately transforms from a tablet to a laptop.

The all-new Surface Laptop 2 continues to deliver outstanding performance for users seeking a stylish yet conventional device. Sleek and light, with improved speed and performance enabled by the latest 8th Generation Intel Quad Core processor, Surface Laptop 2 is 85 per cent more powerful than its predecessor.

With up to 14.5 hours of battery life, Surface Laptop 2 is crafted with its premium design, PixelSense Touch Display, and best in class keyboard and trackpad.  Surface Laptop 2 is more than a workhorse – it is a style statement.

Surface Laptop 2 quiets the sounds you do not want to hear while amplifying the sounds you do want to hear. It barely makes a sound when a user closes the lid or types on the Alcantara keyboard. However, with the built-in OmniSonic speakers discreetly hidden below the keyboard, sounds are brought to life.

The new line-up will be generally available from January 28, 2019. The Surface Pro 6 price in India starts at Rs 83,999 and the top of the line version is priced at Rs 1,39,999. The Surface Laptop 2 starts at Rs 91,999 and maxes out at Rs 2,03,999.
