Microsoft at its Wednesday event in New York City is expected to reveal a new Surface device alongside giving updates about its Windows 10 operating system. Ahead of the launch, two new possible product names that are expected to star at the Wednesday event have made it to the Internet.
According to leaked trademark filing, Microsoft may launch its new Surface Laptop alongside an overhauled Paint app dubbed Paint 3D. Brian Conroy, a trademark agent and solicitor based in Dublin, has also discovered Microsoft is after Surface Studio, Surface Dial, and Dial trademark filings. Conroy further points out that all are filed under categories of computer software or hardware. Unfortunately, there are not many details available about the Surface Studio, Surface Dial, and Dial as of now.
