The invite reads “Start fresh on a brand new surface.” This will be the first Surface Tablet by Microsoft to be launched in India. The company took the lid off Surface Pro 4 in October this year.
The Surface Pro 4 is a direct successor to the Pro 3 (duh), meaning it’s a fully-fledged laptop replacement, with a beefy and capable processor.
Probably, the most significant change is the processor: the Surface Pro 4 has a G5 chipset, designed by Microsoft. We don’t know much about the actual details, apart from that it’s apparently 50% faster than a Macbook Air, or 30% faster than a Pro 3.
Specs include ‘up to’ 16GB of RAM and 1TB of solid-state storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a larger trackpad on the keyboard accessory.
But the insides aren’t the most exciting thing about this new Surface: that would be those bezels, which barely even exist. The Pro 4 has a 12.3″ screen, but it’s the same size as its 12-inch predecessor.
The screen has a resolution of 267ppi. That’s exactly three pixels per inch more than the iPad Pro, by the way. Also, the Gorilla Glass is the thinnest ever on a tablet, at 0.4 inches.
Microsoft’s going all-out with its stylus on this edition of the Surface. The new pen has all-year battery life, interchangeable tips with different feel and sensitivity.
