Microsoft has continued to impress and design better and faster tabs as compared to other competitors on the market. With each Surface Pro release, each has been better than the last, and the Surface Pro 4 may confirm our suspicions as the next high tech gadget on the market.

With different tabs in the market, each having its pros and cons from the likes of Apple, Sony, Lenovo and Dell. The Surface Pro 4 may become the “laptop killer” since the Surface Pro’s have not only been lighter than Apple’s popular machine, but also offer sharp display and excellent handwriting capabilities.

Will the Surface Pro 4 be better than its imperfect predecessor? Lets hope so because with introduction of other competitive devices including Microsoft’s own Surface 3, the Apple iPad Pro, Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 700, HP Satellite Click 10 and HP Pavilion X2, among others. Will it hold its own with in the big tab market? Maybe so, maybe not we just have to wait and see.

 

Release date

Microsoft has sent out media invites to an event being held on October 6, which promises “some exciting news about Windows 10 devices”. With Windows 10 out in the wild and Intel’s Skylake processors finding their way into devices, it wouldn’t be crazy to think that the Surface Pro 4 might take centre stage that day.

The event is shaping up to be a big one. Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans told The Verge that the company is gearing up to unveil the Surface Pro 4 alongside two new Lumia handsets (the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL), the Microsoft Band 2 and potentially a slimmer Xbox One.

It is rumored Microsoft may opt for Intel’s Core M processor or its more powerful Core i5 and Core i7 variants. Whichever the Surface Pro 4 features, it’s highly likely that it’ll feature the latest Skylake chips rather than Broadwell ones.

As Intel demonstrated at IDF, Skylake processors come with Intel’s integrated Iris and Iris Pro graphics. According to leaked Intel slides, new memory improvements could lead to a 50% increase in 3D gaming performance compared to Broadwell, which would lend the Surface Pro 4 much better gaming chops than the Surface Pro 3.

Skylake can also handle 4K UHD video output at 60 frames per second, and can do so on up to three 4K displays. The Surface Pro 4 is nailed on to come with Windows 10 out of the box, and Skylake chips would allow users to wake up the device by shouting at Cortana.

In terms of storage, Surface Pro 4 could offer similar options to the Surface Pro 3, starting at 64GB and rising to 128GB, 256GB and 500GB as seen in earlier versions.
