    The report also mentions that the new Surface tablet will be powered by a bumped up processor, expected to be Intel's new Skylake SoC, and run on Windows 10 OS. As for other specs and design, the tablet will take design cues from its predecessor, and come with similar ultra-thin form factor, bezel size and large-size display as on the Surface Pro 3.

    In addition to that, the report also claims that Microsoft Surface Pro 3 shipment numbers have increase to touch 300,000 units per month mark, up from the 200,000-250,000 units per month in the first quarter. Nevertheless, Microsoft seems to have higher expectations from the yet to be launched Surface Pro 4, considering that the report also says that with the launch of the Surface Pro 4 tablet, Microsoft expect its tablet shipments to rise to a whopping 500,000-600,000 units per month.

    Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 is a 2-in-1 device that has better scope of sales in the market as it integrates good performance with a thin and stylish form factor. We hope that the Surface Pro 4 maintains the momentum for the company.
