Rumors are rife that Microsoft is hosting a massive launch event on October 19, where it is likely to finally take the wraps off its much talked about Surface Pro 4 tablet. A new report now suggests that the Redmond-based company is prepping to add not just one but two bigger-sized tablets in its Surface tab line-up.
According to Digitimes, Microsoft has asked its display manufacturers to work on two differently sized displays, including a 12-inch screen and another larger 13 or 14-inch display. The report does not confirm whether these will be the variants of the next generation Surface Pro Tab, but considering that the Microsoft's Surface ‘Pro' line includes tablets with big displays, these tablets seem to be launched as a part of Surface pro series.
As for specs, the report does not mention any specification details, as such, though these are expected to bring better specs on-board. On tracking Microsoft's previous gen Surface Pro tabs hardware preferences and keeping rumors in mind, we expect the upcoming Surface Pro tablets to be powered by Intel Core chipsets, and come with multiple storage options. On the software front, the tablets should be shipped with Windows 10 on-board.
More can be said about the tablets, once these get official or their specs leak online.
Microsoft is expected to announce the new gen Surface Pro tablets along with its flagship Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL smartphones, and a series of other devices at its upcoming event in October. While nothing has been confirmed by the company as yet, we await to check out what new, in terms of products, does Microsoft bring for its consumers. Considering that Microsoft's Lumia series is not doing any good to the company, it will be interesting to see whether the company manages to change its market position with its upcoming new range of products.
