According to information from a Chinese IT news outlet, cnBeta, the Surface Pro 4 Windows 10 Edition Release Date is not far ahead and we can expect to see it in stores as soon as soon as early July. There’s been a lot of rumors concerning the performance of the new Microsoft tablet and some assumptions allege that the new tablet will feature a Core M CPU and come preloaded with the latest Windows 10 OS.
When is it coming out?
The Surface 3 tablet has been launched not so long ago, so everyone who is hoping that the Surface Pro 4 will be launched in the summer may have to brace themselves for a longer wait time. That is because pre-orders have started on March 31st and starting May 5th, you’ll be able to get one along with accessories from both physical Microsoft stores and from the internet.
Considering the rumors we have circulating on the internet until now, it seems that the Surface Pro 4 will probably be launched somewhere in October. In fact, it actually makes sense for Microsoft to do that because they plan on launching their newest operating system around that period as well. However, nothing is set in stone yet and there are many other reports claiming the Surface Pro 4 will be launched in July (specifically the VCpost report).
Under the hood
While the launch date is very important, what’s under the hood cannot be overlooked. The Surface Pro 4 will reportedly feature a 2K screen that sports a 2160 by 1440 resolution. The heart of the tablet will be either a Core i7 or a Core 85 CPU which are both very powerful processors that can easily handle a lot of data. But if the Surface Pro 4 were to actually be launched in July, that would put the third and fourth generation a little too close for Microsoft’s liking (just 2 months in between).
The Surface Pro 4 has a twelve inch screen which makes it the largest Surface tablet Microsoft has launched, with the express exception of the Surface Hub. However, it seems that there won’t be a single universal size, but actually two variants. The smaller tablet will have a 12 inch screen, while the larger version is going to sport a 14 inch display.
Specs In terms of storage space, the SP 4 may offer similar storage options with the previous generation, starting at 64 GB and going all the way up to 500 GB. However, Microsoft could surprise everyone by introducing a 1TB variant which is certain to attract a lot of attention. In terms of processing power, the CPU will most likely come from the Broadwell family, since this is fairly powerful for a tablet and offers excellent performance.
Other than that, there’s also a good chance that the SP 4 will feature new accessories, since recently Microsoft acquired N-Trig, a company that designed the software and hardware giant’s pressure sensitive stylus technology. So what do you think? Are these rumors and specs enough for the Surface Pro 4 to be a hit or is there something else that Microsoft should be upgrading?
