October 6 is shaping up to be one spectacular Microsoft event. By all accounts, the New York venue will witness the unveiling of the eagerly-anticipated Lumia 950 and 950 XL flagship Windows phones, the Microsoft Band 2 and last, but definitely not least, the all the Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
Its predecessor, the Surface Pro 3 is widely considered to be the definitive enterprise-level tablet, or all in one solution (whichever categorization you see more fitting) and Microsoft will really have to strain hart to top its jewel of mobile productivity. We have already heard a lot about the powerful new Surface Pro 4, but a new rumor ads and extra twist to the story, hinting at the possibility of two screen size options.
One is said to be a 12-inch variant, just like the current Surface Pro 3, while the other should be the already widely-discussed 14-inch model, with a sharp resolution of 1440 x 2160 pixels. This is still largely unconfirmed and we are not quite sure how exactly it fits in with the previous information of switchable display size on the Surface Pro 4. But one, definitely does not exclude the other and considering the purported razor-sharp bezels of the unit, reducing the usable screen size while holding the device in tablet mode would still make a lot of sense, even in a smaller form factor.
And while we're on the subject of design, industry sources suggest that not much will change in this iteration in terms of general outlook. Microsoft GM Brian Hall has even stated that the new Pro tablet will be compatible with the accessories of its predecessor, namely the docking station and Type Cover. Now, there is something you don't see every day. But, even though, you won't be required to upgrade your peripherals, you will still, most-likely, get the chance to, as a new and improved Type Cover is sure to be released. It might also be accompanied by a stylus, perhaps courtesy of N-Trig out of Israel.
As for the rest of the specs of the Surface Pro 4, rumors currently hint at a new and more efficient Intel Skylake Core chip, up to 16GB of RAM and 500GB of SSD storage. And Windows 10 will undoubtedly be powering the show.
