NPU reports that Microsoft is planning a grand event on October 19 when it will unveil a new Microsoft Band and the Surface Pro 4 tablet. It also expected that the company will launch two flagship handsets at the same event–the Microsoft Lumia 940 & Microsoft Lumia 940 XL. This means, the company is not just gearing up to take a lead in the smartphones market but it is also eyeing the market for hardware devices.
While there are many reports about upcoming Lumia phones from Microsoft, the company continues to be tight-lipped about its plan for the October event. Sources in the know informed The Verge about the launch of new smartphones. Another Chinese site, WP Dang has claimed earlier that Microsoft plans to unveil multiple hardware devices at the event.
While the launch of a Band and the Surface Pro 2 will attract attention, the Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL will be the main attractions at this event.
Specifications of these Lumia phones have already been leaked on the web, yet fans are anxiously waiting to get a glimpse of the devices.

We are also expecting to see the Surface Pro 4 tablet at this event. However, it is not likely to be a great deviation from its predecessor. It could get slimmer and lighter. Some improvisations may be found in its display or resolution.
