Contrary to the more excitable rumours we were hearing a few weeks back, Microsoft did not launch the next-generation Surface Pro 4 hybrid laptop at this year's Build 2015.
It looks like Microsoft has been gearing up to launch the newest Surface Pro for some time. Now, fresh reports now claim that the company will unveil its hybrid tablet at a special event to be held in mid-May - putting its launch in June or July of this year.
Just to recall, the Surface Pro 3 was unveiled in May-June time frame. Although it is hard to trust the above mentioned published report, the announcement of the Surface Pro 4 does makes sense, given its predecessor was unveiled a year ago.
The Surface Pro 4 is said to be thinner than the Surface Pro 3, although not lighter, 3skr.com adds, and it will also feature a 12-inch display, with a screen resolution of 1260 x 1440 with 216 ppi, similar to its predecessor. In addition, the Surface Pro 4, which will come in two models - 12-inch and 14-inch models - will be packed with high-end specs and features.
Furthermore, Microsoft's Surface Pro hybrid tablet will sport Intel i5 and i7 processors and will come with 1 TB of storage, according to media reports. Of course, it will be powered by Windows 10 OS out of the box.
The much-awaited device will come with a 3.5MP front-facing camera and an 8MP rear-facing shooter. Both are said to be capable of taking 1080p videos.
In terms of pricing, rumours suggest it might cost anywhere between a $1,200 - $2,000 price range.
