Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 is one of the most anticipated devices to hit the market in recent memory.
Each new version of Surface Pro has been incrementally better than the previous one, so there’s every reason to expect the Pro 4 to surpass the earlier versions by far.
Of course, there is nothing official concerning its release date or its specs, but let’s go through the things we think we know.
Starting with the release, date there’s every reason to believe the Surface Pro 4 will be launched before the end of summer.
Microsoft is set to release Windows 10 July 29, and there have been various reports that the Surface Pro 4 will release in conjunction with Windows 10, meaning on or soon after July 29.
Obviously, nothing is certain until there’s an official release date, but eager Microsoft fans should expect the Surface Pro 4 to be released on July 29 along with Windows 10 or in the early part of August.
Surface Pro 4In terms of its appearance, there are reasons to believe the Surface Pro 4 will be available in two sizes: a 12-inch display and a 14-inch display.
Pro 4 will also feature Intel’s Core M Broadwell CPU, which is used in most Windows devices.
However, there has been some speculation that Microsoft could use Intel’s Broadwell-Y CPU, which would make the new device thinner and fanless, giving it at least two appearance upgrades over previous versions.
For the specs, the Surface Pro 4 is expected to have an Intel Core-i5 and Core-i7 processor. Storage space should start at 64GB, with options to raise it to 128GB, 256GB, or 500GB.
The Pro 4 should also come equipped with a stylus pen, just like the Pro 3.
According to some sources, Microsoft is trying to integrate the latest Skylake processor chip into the Pro 4, and that the new device will be compatible with Microsoft’s Holo Lens virtual reality device.
Finally, the Surface Pro 4 is expected to have two cameras, an 8MP one in the rear and a 3.5MP one in the front.
Of course, these are mere expectations and rumors until Microsoft announces anything official for the specs and release date of its new Surface Pro 4.
