Rumor has it that the alleged Microsoft Surface Pro 4 will be released this October.
“Following the recent market rumor that Microsoft has placed a large order for Samsung Electronics’ 256GB solid state drive (SSD) to be used for its new Surface tablet, the related upstream supply chain reportedly has recently been notified to start mass shipments of components in September with the tablet estimated to become available in the market in October.”
Is the upcoming Surface Pro 4 a MacBook slash iPad killer? Microsoft realized this with the Surface Pro 3 hybrid that works very well as both a tablet and laptop computer. The Surface Pro 4 is expected to be pitted against Apple iPad Pro.
The keyboards will remain on sale at the lower price until August 7, but it’s not clear how long the discount will remain available on the Surface 3. With a new software suite coming around alongside Windows 10, the Surface Pro 4 will be designed and engineered around integration with Microsoft services and devices.
In a 36KR, a Chinese publication, Surface Pro 4 still appears to be fanless.
The Gospel Herald said that a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 mini could give all the benefits of a tablet on the go as well as the ability to scale up to desktop use by connecting to a bigger screen. The new iPad has also been rumored to arrive this fall.
Quoting Microsoft’s latest earnings report, Twice said, the Surface tablet lineup growth increased 117 percent, which translates to $888 million.
Although we’re not even sure the Surface Pro 4 release date is correct, information keeps piling up about prices and specs in our inboxes. The most expensive model will feature an i7 architecture, 16 GB RAM and a bigger, better 13-inch display. There are also reports that the Surface Pro 4 will feature a new camera as well as an improved stylus following the acquisition by Microsoft of N-Trig, the company that manufactures styli. Surface Pro 4 will have either an i5 or i7 Intel Core processors. Unless the company launches something sub-par, which is unlikely, the Surface Pro 4 should eventually end up being a success in the tablet/convertible industry.
