Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablet will reportedly pack advanced hardware and come in two screen sizes, says Digitimes, citing a Taiwanese upstream supply chain.  

It has been known for quite some time now that the Surface Pro 4 will come in two screen sizes; the new report adds more weight to such rumours.

According to the latest report of Digitimes, one of the Surface Pro 4 variants will feature the regular 12-inch screen, like the current Surface Pro 3, while the other model will come with either 13 or 14-inch screen.

The new report is in line with earlier claims that suggested the new Surface Pro 4 will be compatible with the Surface Pro 3 accessories. Hence, the 12-inch Surface Pro 4 will rightfully draw similar dimensions as the Surface Pro 3 to support accessories like the docking station, Win Beta reports.

The specifications of the Surface Pro 4 still remain a mystery. The Digitimes report also failed to give out any specifics except for stating that the new Surface 2-in-1 devices will feature high-end hardware. But there have been rumours and leaks about the unannounced tablet, suggesting the Surface Pro 4 will have Intel Skylake chips, such as Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7.

In addition, rumours have also pointed that the new Surface Pro 4 will come in different RAM and storage options, just like the current model. The RAM space is expected to go as high as 16GB and storage up to 1TB in the high-end model. The tablet is also said to get an improved version of stylus pen and Windows 10 OS out of the box.

In an earlier report last week, The Verge had speculated some details about the new Surface Pro 4, which coincide with the new Digitimes report. Additionally, The Verge had downplayed the possibility of a USB Type-C port coming to the new tablet.

Microsoft is yet to confirm the Surface Pro 4 release but the new tablet is expected to be launched at an event in New York on 19 October. At the event, the Redmond-based software giant is expected to launch two flagships, Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL, along with Microsoft Band, NokiaPowerUser reported.
