Sources speaking to ZDNet and Thurott.com have dropped the codename for a major overhaul to Microsoft's Surface Pro: "Carmel".

That's hardly a ground-breaking shift in design, given Microsoft finally added a USB-C port to its Surface Book 2, but it could open the hybrid tablet-come-laptop to more power and accessories such as external GPUs and multiple daisy-chained 4K external displays.

The Surface Pro is no stranger to deals, but prior to today the cheapest price we've seen for it has been $670 (back in April). The Surface Pro starts at $799 (Intel Core m3, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD), so it's possible that pricing for this device entry-level Surface tablet will closely align with the garden variety Apple iPad, which starts at $329. Also not confirmed, is the addition of USB-C ports on the upcoming device. According to ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, the product won't launch until mid-2019 but will be heavily redesigned.

Interestingly, Microsoft could also be working on new Surface-branded headset to be released later this year or early next year. It's also said that Andromeda will jumpstart a new category of pocketable devices that will be created by Microsoft's OEM hardware partners. As per a report by the The Verge, the device is not expected to arrive until mid-2019, even though Microsoft is expected to announced a refreshed design for its 8th-generation processor lineup later this year.
