More details on the Surface Pro 4 are surfacing as the purported release date of Oct. 19 is nearing. Now, a fresh report from Digitimes indicates that Microsoft will be launching the Surface Pro 4 in two different screen size editions.
Citing upstream supply chain, Digitimes reported that the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 will be available in a regular display size of 12 inches and a new display edition of 13 or 14 inches is also expected to arrive this year. The last year’s Surface Pro 3 came with a 12-inch display.
The report does not include any information on the Surface Pro 4 specifications, but only vaguely mentions that it will be featuring advanced hardware. A recent report by Phone Arena stated that the Surface Pro 4 will be featuring the Windows 10 operating system.
The upcoming Surface Pro 4 will be powered by different CPU variants of Intel Skylake chipsets, such as Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7. Like the Surface Pro 3, its successor will be available in different RAM and storage editions. The new tablet is also pegged to arrive with an upgraded version of Surface Pen stylus.
Since last year, Microsoft has been claiming that the accessories of the Surface Pro 3 will be compatible with Surface Pro 4. Therefore, the Surface Pro 4 with a 12-inch display is expected to come with the same dimensions as that of the Surface Pro 3. It will also support accessories like docking station of the last year’s model, Win Beta reported.
Microsoft has not revealed any official information on the Surface Pro 4 tablet. However, multiple sources have been consistently revealing purported specs and release date information.
Speculations are rife that the Surface Pro 4 could be released on Oct. 19 at an event in New York. It is also the date when the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL are slated to be unveiled. The Redmond giant is also expected to announce the Microsoft Band 2 fitness band on Oct. 19.
