Microsoft is hosting its big Windows 10 event today in New York. It is likely that the event will last for two and a half hours and Microsoft will have some marathon announcements.

Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL are expected and will be the showcase devices for Redmond’s Windows 10 mobile ambitions. Also Microsoft is expected to refresh its Surface Pro 3 with new Intel Skylake chipset and 4K display. The new device is expected to be named Surface Pro 4 and will be thinner and lighter than the predecessor. Microsoft Band 2 is also confirmed to make an appearance at the event. The Microsoft Band 2 is expected to feature a curved display and metal accents around that curved display.

On the software side, Microsoft may announce release date for Windows 10 mobile and also reveal details on the refinements to Windows 10 OS with threshold 2 update about to rollout in November.

The event starts at 10AM ET in New York which translates to 7.30PM IST.
