Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 is slated for an October announcement, alongside the company’s other products such as Lumia handsets, as well as a fitness device called Band 2. Microsoft plans on bridging the gap between tablets and laptops with the release of the upcoming product but the Skylake processors present inside it will not be sufficient enough to do the job. You know what will? Lots on internal storage. Surface Pro 4 is not just going to come incorporated with impressive hardware. When Microsoft wants to bridge the gap between notebooks and tablets, we are confident they are going to treat this ambition with serious conviction.
Surface Pro 4 Will Come In Different High Capacity Storage Models, Including 512 GB And 1 TB Ones
The latest hardware leak from China suggests that Surface Pro 4 will not only come big on processing power, but internal storage as well. According to the source, the upcoming slate will be available in several storage models, ranging from 128 GB to 1 TB of storage. However, the only thing that concerns us that as soon as the storage count starts to increase, the pricing of the tablet will shoot up too.
More details uncovered from the leak also suggests that the highest Surface Pro 4 model will also come with a whopping RAM count of 16 GB, along with a Core i7 processor. Naturally, consumers who have a ton of spare cash lying around will have the financial capacity to acquire one but seeing as how Microsoft has gone to extreme lengths to virtually remove the gap between bulky laptops and tablets shows that future mobile products will be much cheaper and sport better specs than this.
However, one of the primary reasons why Surface Pro 4 is stacked with so much hardware is because it wants to gain a monumental advantage over its primary nemesis; Apple’s iPad Pro. If the leak concerning the hardware of Surface Pro 4 ends up being true, then Apple’s large screen tablet will already be in heaps in trouble. Let us wait till the month of October and hope that Surface Pro 4 features ‘top of the line’ hardware and a price that caters to a large consumer market.
