Surface Pro 4 Rumors: Is Microsoft Planning To Launch A Beast Of A Tablet?
With Surface Pro 4's much rumored release in October nearing, speculation about the hybrid tablet's specifications suggests Microsoft may release two screen sizes.
According to PC-Tablet, the Redmond computer giant may release a 14-inch tablet along with the 12-inch variant, which will be backward compatible with Surface Pro 3 accessories. Reports suggest that the smaller screen variant may support nearly QHD resolution while the bigger 14-inch could even support a slightly higher resolution. By decreasing bezel size, Microsoft may squeeze a larger screen into a 12-inch Surface Pro 4 body without increasing the form factor.
Another detail that has been doing the rounds rather frequently is that the devices could be loaded with 8 GB and 16 GB of RAM. On the graphics front, Design & Trend reports that Microsoft is unlikely to ship the devices with dedicated graphics unit. Instead, the integrated chip Intel 530 HD, which is said to be one of the best Skylake graphics units, may power the graphics processing. In real-world gaming tests, 530 HD was found to be twice better than graphics units used in Surface Pro 3.
Additionally, it was also reported Microsoft may reveal the new tablet on October 6 during a special Windows 10 event. The company has however not officially confirmed the date of release.
