The second autumn month will take a place in the calendar already in the coming week, and with it a fresh batch of interesting techno-novelties is coming. The presentation in October was officially announced by manufacturers Microsoft, OnePlus and Google. Moreover, even Meizu will glance at the light. The first will show innovative computers, the second, third and fourth - its flagship smartphones and, possibly, some other products.
Based on the latest rumors and leaks, we gathered the main information about upcoming devices as part of our established digest of announcements.
2 October. New Microsoft Surface
The first presentation in October will be dedicated to a new generation of Surface computers. Microsoft has confirmed that its special event will take place on Wednesday October 2 in New York (USA).
Rumors suggest that the software giant will introduce an AMD processor-based Surface Laptop, an updated Surface Pro 7 transformer in two configurations, and the concept of a Surface folding tablet with two screens, known on the network under the code name Centaurus. The latter is very unlikely, however, insiders do not exclude this option.

Intel Dual-Screen Windows Transformer Concept
Microsoft is currently working closely with Intel and several other OEM partners to develop the Windows Lite operating system. As the name implies, this is a simplified version of Windows 10. It is expected that it will become the top priority for devices with two screens and maybe even tell about it some details at the upcoming presentation.
Among other possible new products from Microsoft - branded portable speaker with voice assistant Cortana. A patent application discovered in August revealed a device similar to the Google Home Mini in design and size.
October 10th. OnePlus 7T Pro and OnePlus TV
If it seems to you that you have already seen this somewhere, then it does not seem to you. The presentation of OnePlus 7T and OnePlus TV thundered on September 26, but it was in New Delhi (India) and North America. OnePlus has also planned a separate event in London, UK, where the Chinese manufacturer will announce European prices and other details. Date is Thursday, October 10th.
OnePlus 7T with 90 Hz screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ and triple camera. Does the OnePlus 7T Pro make sense now?
The network believes that OnePlus has stockpiled the flagship OnePlus 7T Pro for the October presentation. The model was not announced at the end of September, but there were many leaks indicating exactly two new items. It is unlikely that they will simply refuse the professional version six months after the release of the OnePlus 7 Pro, which has become much more popular compared to the standard OnePlus 7. At the same time, the OnePlus 7T has got a 90 Hz screen, the current Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor and a triple camera, so OnePlus The 7T Pro doesn’t look like a much needed T-line.
As for OnePlus TV, Earlier OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said that the company is making every effort to establish partnerships with regional content providers and speedy launch of its first smart TV in Europe. Great Britain seems like the perfect place to make a statement.

October 15th. Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL
In 2019, Google is surprisingly weird about the new Pixel flagship line. Back in June, the search giant confirmed rumors
about the design of smartphones - this has never happened. Now, just in a month, the date of the traditional autumn presentation by Made by Google in New York (USA) has been announced. This time the event is scheduled for Tuesday October 15th.
As before, the fourth-generation Pixel will come in the form of two models - Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL with an increased diagonal of the screen. Smartphones will receive a completely new design: the case will become glass, the camera will be placed in a massive square module, while the thick cutout in the screen will be replaced by a large upper frame with many built-in functional sensors. Quite controversial decisions.
Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will appear in a new color - “Oh, so orange” (Oh So Orange)
According to preliminary data, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be equipped with a dual camera for the first time in the history of the line - Google will combine Sony IMX363 sensors with a resolution of 12.2 megapixels and Sony IMX481 with 16 megapixels. The diagonal of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be 5.7 inches (Full HD + resolution) and 6.23 inches (Quad HD + resolution), respectively. Both models will have a 90 Hz Smooth Display smooth screen with support for dynamic switching of the refresh rate, a 7-nanometer Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 6 GB of RAM (in the Pixel 4 XL - 8 GB) and a pre-installed Android 10 operating system.
It is noteworthy that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL echoed the history of their predecessors. Literally everything about the upcoming smartphones - technical specifications, software and hardware features, even a commercial - flowed into the network long before the official announcement. New items including fell into the hands of bloggers, and they were not afraid to shoot video reviews. However, who knows, maybe Google has some special strategy, although it looks strange.
