Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has received a price cut and reports suggest that fans of the Microsoft Hybrid Workhorse won’t need to wait long for the release of its successor.
The latest rumors suggest that the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 will have a middle-of-the-year release and some observers have placed the date to be sometime in July. Meanwhile, Microsoft has remained quiet about the release of its next generation laptop hybrid.
Most fans of the tech community have been hearing rumors about a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 release and some of these reports seem to have some confirmation from ‘sources’ and third parties. Furthermore, the rumored July release of this device is rumored to coincide with the release of Microsoft Windows 10.
It has already been confirmed that the upcoming new platform from Microsoft will debut on 29th July which lends some credence to this report. It is obvious that the launch of the Microsoft Windows 10 will have a major impact but pairing it with the release of another Surface Pro device will have a much bigger impact.
On top of that, reports suggest that Windows 10 will be released on a staggered basis and the first to hit the shelves will be the tablet editions and PC. Microsoft will most probably decide to tip the scales in their favor by announcing the platforms together. Meanwhile, several other rumors are circulating online.
They suggest that Microsoft might be planning to release a whole new line of products and services, scheduled for July release. Besides the launch of Windows 10 and the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, the Redmondian Company will release Lumia 940 and the 940XL smartphones as well.
The upcoming tablet from Microsoft has been predicted to make waves and grab consumer attention. The rumors sound really promising but we’ll have to see if Microsoft can live up to this hype. The Surface Pro 4 will be revolutionary as it will feature new hardware specifications along with a brand new operating system.
The previous models in the Surface line-up were mainly upgraded on the hardware front with not many changes in software. Microsoft is probably planning to launch the Pro 4 and Windows 10 together and due to this launch could be delayed to summer.
In the meantime, Neowin has a few possibilities listed which suggest that the tablet may come early if Microsoft decides to launch it with an early build of Windows 10 or the more unlikely Windows 8. Or else, if the software giant decides adhere to the Surface Pro 3 release pattern, the tablet could be announced as early as June, before starting to ship in late-July.
