Microsoftâ€™s Surface Pro 4 release date Oct. 6: Basic changes that every one is expecting
Microsoftâ€™s Surface Pro 4 is going to be showcased to the world tomorrow. Merely a day is left when the much talked about tablet will be launched in front of a waiting world. The Microsoft event slated to be held tomorrow in New York has been in news ever since the rumors about it started doing rounds months ago.
There is no denying the fact that the physical products from the Redmond company donâ€™t attract as much attention as not just top gadget makers, but even midlevel gadget makers, except in the case of gaming console. After years and years of struggle to make a name for itself in the wearable devices and smartphone sphere, the company hasnâ€™t been able to get good success.
Nonetheless tablet is one sphere where the success has come, after years and years of failure. After the massive success of Surface Pro 3 last year, the tech giant is expected to do even better with the newest version of the tablet.
While Microsoft tablet fans are expecting the new tab to come with better processor, they are also hoping to get better battery backup. The Surface Pro 3â€™s battery life was criticized by almost everyone. Anandtechâ€™s Anand Lal Shimpi says, â€œIn our tablet benchmarks, I never saw Surface Pro break the 6 hour mark on a single charge. In most cases Iâ€™d expect to see 5 â€“ 6 hours out of Surface Pro in light, tablet usage. Video playback was especially disappointing as Surface Pro managed to use more power here than during our web browsing battery life testâ€. Now there are reasons to believe that the company has worked on this aspect and the new tab will come with significantly improved battery life.
Then there are more details about the next generation Surface Pro. â€œAs per details available with us, the new Surface Pro 4 will reportedly feature variants carrying 12-inch and 14-inch displays as well as brand new Intel processors when it will launch next month. The new processors in question could either be Intelâ€™s Core M Broadwell CPU or Intel Skylake processors to be available in Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 variantsâ€, says a latest report.
In the meantime as far as display quality is concerned, reports suggest that Pro 4 will have the same 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution screen as the Surface Pro 3. Nonetheless there are reports that suggest 12-inch and 14-inch variants of the Surface Pro 4 will contain a 4K Ultra HD screen. So there are many aspects that we still donâ€™t know clearly till now. Stay tuned for more info.
