Microsoft's on-campus Hall of Fame raises suspicions on at least four new Surface devices yet to be revealed with one coming before the end of 2016.

Microsoft houses a Hall of Fame inside one of its buildings and developer Shubhan Chemburkar recently had a chance to visit the site and take photographs. Interestingly, the Surface section of the Hall of Fame includes four placeholder placards: One for 2016 and three for 2017 all sitting next to existing Surface devices that are currently available. This highly suggests that Microsoft has some Surface announcements up its sleeve before the end of this year and even more for 2017.

It's still unclear if the next Surface will be a notebook, tablet, AIO, or simply another accessory. Recent rumors are pointing to a Surface AIO for an announcement this Fall while the Surface Phone is still a real possibility according to Microsoft blogger Paul Thurrott. The three Surface devices hinted for 2017 could be direct successors to the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book alongside a third brand new model for either the smartphone family or the outgoing Surface 3 tablet.

The Surface Pro tablets have been extremely successful in bringing Windows to a tablet form factor and currently ranks number one in our list of top 10 Windows tablets.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
