There will be new hardware from Microsoft.

Microsoft just unveiled the new Surface Laptop, but the company has more new hardware to unviel. "On May 23 in Shanghai, Microsoft will show the world what’s next," states a brief announcement on

The announcement does not provide further detail. Surface Phone? We don't know yet, but it will be something from Microsoft's Surface line. Panos Panay will be on hand in Shanghai. He tweeted: "See you in Shanghai, May 23." with hashtag #Surface.

Besides the fabled Surface phone, Microsoft might just announced the new Surface Pro 5 tablets. The Surface Phone would be so much more important for Microsoft. The whole store of Windows everywhere breaks down with not having presence in the smartphone category.

Panos Panay, Corporate VP of Devices surprised us last year with the Surface Studio. The Surface Studio leaped over Apple's iMac. If Microsoft is able to be as innovative with the Surface Phone, it actually would have a chance at becoming a player.

The May 23 event is very likely about the Surface Pro 5. Microsoft VP Yusuf Mehdi said in Bloomberg interview to expect an update to the Surface Pro 4 soon earlier this week. Hopes are still high that Microsoft will unveil a Surface Phone in 2017.
