Surface Pro 3 was very successful hybrid device that brought Microsoft $1.1 billion in revenue from the sales in the second quarter of 2014. And now the Redmond-based company plans to expend the Surface Pro family even more with the Surface Pro 4 hybrid device.
As the rumor spreads around the internet, the new Surface Pro 4 is very likely to be released by Microsoft soon. The tablet is expected to come in markets in two sizes, and of course with the full version of Windows 10 as its operating system. Just like its predecessor, the Surface Pro 4 will be a hybrid device, which means that it will feature a detachable keyboard and it could be used as a tablet as well as a laptop.
We assume that the new hybrid will be the usual 12-inch model with a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels, while the ‘other’ Surface Pro 4 will come as a device with a smaller display. Even before we heard about the release of the Surface Pro 4, there was a word around the internet that Microsoft will release the miniature version of the Surface Pro tablet, but it was eventually canceled as it didn’t offer enough quality features to be separated from the tough competition.
This is of course just a rumor, and we don’t have any official announcements from Microsoft yet, and we shouldn’t expect any until the company decides to manufacture the device for sure. But if Microsoft manages to create a successful operating system with Windows 10, there’s a high possibility that the Surface Pro 4 will be one of the first flagship devices powered by this OS. But until (if) all that happens, we advise you not to take these news for granted, because it’s just a rumor for now, but if something more comes up, we’ll notify you about that.
