Surface Pro 4 might be available with two screen sizes
posted by Alan F. / Oct 03, 2015, 12:26 AM
The current speculation has Microsoft offering a 12-inch tablet, like the current Surface Pro 3, and a huge 14-inch model with a 1440 x 2160 resolution. That works out to a 185ppi pixel density. The slate is rumored to be free of bezels, and there is talk that Microsoft will use the new Skylake Core chipset from Intel. Up to 16GB of RAM will be available, with native storage running as high as 500GB. Windows 10 OS will be pre-installed
According to those familiar with Microsoft's plans, the company didn't want to mess with the design of the Surface Pro 3, so the Surface Pro 4 will have basically the same look as its predecessor. Microsoft GM Brian Hall has stated that the next generation of the Surface Pro will be compatible with the Surface Pro 3's accessories, meaning that the Docking station and the Type Cover from the current model will fit on the Surface Pro 4. We could still see an improved Type Cover for the new slate be revealed on Tuesday, loaded with new features.
In addition, we could see a new stylus. Microsoft acquired the Israel company N-Trig, which produces the stylus technology for the Surface tablets. Considering that the new Microsoft Edge browser on Windows 10 has some functions that use handwriting, a new stylus for the Surface Pro 4 is warranted.
Microsoft raised the bar tremendously high with the Surface Pro 3, making it hard to surpass with the Surface Pro 4. But now that Apple has an iPad challenger to the Surface Pro line, the software giant cannot take even one second to slack off in the high-end tablet market (or the enterprise tablet market, or the large-screened tablet market, whatever you want to call it). The results of this hard work will be displayed this coming Tuesday.

Well, seems like today people are not very smart. Slim bezel on tablet? Especially on heavy tablet like Surface Pro? Did you ever use tablet for more than 5 minutes? Bezels are ugly, I agree, but on tablet they are absolutely necessary.

The surface pro 4 is a ipad pro copy like the surface pro 3.

How could the Surface Pro 3 be a copy of the iPad Pro when the Surface Pro 3 has been available for purchase for some time now and the iPad Pro isn't even out yet? iFan logic is ridiculous....by the way, I see you've created a new account, Tim Cook.

SP4 is rumoured to come with a 4k screen not QHD as mentioned in the article. My guess is the QHD one will be a choice with 4k.

Battery life is already poor on an FHD screen, so adding a 4K screen would be madness.

It's funny how Apple gets featured in every products article.

It is because Apple is the world's best tech company. The message needs to be displayed on every article to get people to realize that.

Which skylake parts will be used ? Because from performance standpoint, iPad Pro is looking like blowing away most, if not all ULV parts available, mainly in GPU performance.

Skylake is intel's 6th generation cpu. i5 and i7 6th generation will be used from U series that is with TDP 15. CPU performance will be way better than ipad pro, we should be intrested in GPU, intel's 530 vs GPU in ipad pro. I wish there would have been pro model with Quad core processor and iris pro graphics.
