Windows New Surface Line-up Leaked: Surface Pro

Surface Pro

Microsoft is still not finished with its new product launches. Looks like the tech giant is getting ready for its event on May 23rd, Shangai, China to introduce a new product to the Surface Pro Lineup. We have seen the Surface Laptop unveiled recently for students and educators. 

The product to be launched in the upcoming event is the successor of the Surface Pro 4 - the laptop cum tablet gadget. The name is not yet confirmed but the specialist in leaks Evan Blass suggest that the name will ditch the number with the name being only "Surface Pro". He also posted a series of leaked images on his website Venturebeat which reveals a lot about this upcoming device.

Surface Pro 4: All You Need To Know

Surface is the Microsoft-made computers lineup that has a lot of products under its umbrella. The wide range of devices are:

  • Surface Pro
  • Surface Book
  • Surface Laptop
  • Surface Phone (Maybe)

While the Surface book is a powerful laptop plus tablet with high specs including a dedicated graphics card, Surface Pro is more of a powerful tablet that can also be used as a laptop. Surface laptop on other hand is announced recently and is a whole other device (with Windows S and other limitations).

Surface Pro 4 received a lot of positive reviews than its predecessor Surface Pro 3. The less weight, thinner bezels and faster hardware made Surface Pro 4 the best follow-up to Surface Pro 3. Available in wide range of variants, Surface Pro 4's portability, reliability, and its optimized running made the device a hit.

 

Where the device fell short of?

  • Very expensive for the features offered
  • The Type cover (keyboard) not included in the product but need to be bought separately
  • Less number of ports available
  • A bit odd aspect ratio
  • The most important of all: Lack of a USB C type port

Surface Pro: Will It Be Better?

Ditching the number from the name may suggest that Microsoft is looking to make this device independent from the others. One does not want the similar features in all the products. This means that Surface Pro will be different from Surface Book and Surface Laptop.

Here what we learned and what we expect in the new Surface Pro:

  • The design is kept the same according to the leaked images
  • No USB C means bad news for the users and the image suggests the same port arrangement
  • Slightly thinner bezels
  • Surface pen now in more colors
  • Type cover not attached but hoping that it is included with the product
  • More internal changes (A dedicated graphic card maybe!)
  • A decrease in price is highly expected

There are high speculations and hope on this new product addition to the Surface family. A drop in price will be the best thing that can be done by Microsoft and considering that Surface Pro 4 is an excellent device, let us hope this will not fail the fame of its predecessor. Let us wait and see!
