While Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 tablet was one of the first tablets to break the 12-inch display barrier and was recently joined by Apple's iPad Pro, word is out that Microsoft is going a step further come October.
Surface Pro 4, a successor of the hugely popular Surface Pro 3, will reportedly feature variants carrying 12-inch and 14-inch displays as well as brand new Inter processors when it will launch next month.
The new Intel Skylake processors, to be available in Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 variants, are said to bring in greater power efficiency to Microsoft's upcoming tablets.
The new tablets will also feature displays with 2160 x 1440p resolution and will come with a larger battery, docket stations and Type covers. The Windows 10-powered tablet will also carry an advanced Stylus which will be more intuitive to touch and possess greater sensitivity than the current Surface Pen.
Overall, Microsoft intends to bring in greater power efficiency, longer battery life and enhanced user experience along with the new tablet. The tablet is expected to debut along with Microsoft's brand new high-end flagship smartphones next month.
Ever since Microsoft's Lumia smartphone unit went through a catastrophic fall earlier this year, CEO Satya Nadella has vowed to bring in fewer devices with enhanced performance and design to achieve break-even.
With the Surface Pro 3 performing admirably, we expect the new tablet, coupled with the Winows 10 architecture, to offer a much better experience to potential buyers.
