Microsoft could have new Surface accessories in the works, according to recently uncovered FCC filings.
Spotted by WindowsBlogItalia, the filings don’t include many details about the new accessories beyond that they are a wireless mouse and keyboard. However, the filings do include testing dates in July and August for the mouse and keyboard respectively.
Both the keyboard and mouse filings include the date the applications were received and confidentiality statements. These statements request certain details not be revealed, with one specifically requesting details remain secret until February 10th, 2020.
It’s an interesting date, as that could mean the new Surface Keyboard and Mouse may come out long after the upcoming Surface Event in October. Alternatively, it could merely be Microsoft acting cautiously and securing a window to announce and launch the devices.
Further, Windows Central points out that Microsoft hasn’t updated its Surface Ergonomic Keyboard or its Surface Mouse in a long time, so these could be the new accessories.
Whatever the situation, we’ll likely learn more in October.
