Microsoft Windows 10 is almost ready for unveil and with rumours putting a July-end release timeline of Redmond’s latest operating system, we believe – based on clues and industry experts – that the software giant will release Surface Pro 4 soon enough. Here’s why!
First up its the reduction in prices of Surface Pro 3 in quite a few markets. Any company would opt for a price reduction only during holidays when it is looking to ramp up sales; or in case it is clearing out the product because it is ceasing its production; or it is in the process or launching a new version. In this case, we believe it is the eminent release of Surface Pro 4 because of which Microsoft has reduced cut prices of Surface Pro 3.
Secondly, Windows 10 is being pegged as an operating system that will effectively run on all platforms – laptops, tablets and even phones. OEMs have already been planning to launch Windows 10 powered laptops ever since Microsoft started releasing the preview version of Windows 10. As far as tablets go, Microsoft would want to bank on its own product to showcase the power of its Windows 8.1 successor and the logical choice would be Surface Pro 4.
Third, Surface Pro 3 was released just about a year ago in the US and its about time that a worthy successor is launched. Surface Pro 3 is a great tablet and in a recent tablet speed race carried out by Which?, it has been rated the best tablet even leaving behind Apple iPad Air 2. With Surface Pro 3 delivering its promise, a successor powered by Windows 10 – which has already made waves in the OS world – is something that Microsoft would want to cash-in on.
Fourth, Windows 10 public launch is one of the most anticipated events and what could be a better stage to showcase a portable device with top-notch hardware specifications when the whole world is watching.
Surface Pro 4 Hardware Specifications
Rumours about the hardware specifications of Surface Pro 4 have been floating for a while now and a gist of them is as follows:
Surface Pro 4 is likely to pack a whopping 16GB of RAM; differing storage options starting 128GB through to 1 terrabyte (TB); Intel’s Core M Broadwell or Skylake processor; Microsoft’s upcoming Holo Lens; 12-inch display with 2160 x 1440 pixels of display resolution; 8-megapixel rear camera and a 3.5 MP front-facing camera.
Impressed? We are to some extent, but it seems that some of the rumours might not turn out to be true. What are your thoughts on these. Let us know in the comments section.
