Being a tech geek, I almost fell off my chair as I read the news (No, it’s because of the hangover, it was the excitement of knowing a new gadget that is going to see the daylight soon). The new launch comes in line with the sending of media invitations for the launch event that is slated to be held in New Delhi on 7th January. If you are excited too, without beating around the bush, let’s get straight to know the specifications and features of this (what I believe is going to be the) next big thing in the Tablet segment.
The new Microsoft table, Surface Pro 4 is all set to sizzle the eyes with its aesthetic design and physical built. It boasts of a 12.3 inch screen with a display resolution of 2736 x 1824 pixels and a 3:2 aspect ratio. With the display output, you can be sure that everything that you view on the screen is a visual treat for your eyes (I will eat my hat if you don’t feel the same).

Moving on from the display and screen to other vital features, you would be delighted to know that the screen is protected by the Corning Gorilla glass 4, which keeps the screen safe from scratch and user marks. This is a real boon for rough and tough users. Also, to take the user experience to another level, Microsoft has given a Stylus with the tablet. The stylus, which is called as the Surface Pen is a shining knight in the Tablet’s armour as it would make it easy for you to operate different functions.
The performance of any tablet is determined by its hardware specifications. The Surface Pro 4 being a Microsoft product, it is packed with the best in class specs, which includes Intel’s 6th Gen Core processor, 4GB RAM and Intel 515 HD graphics and Intel Iris Graphics card. If you understand a bit of tech, you would know that with such heavy graphics card on board, you can enjoy browsing the most graphically heavy sites as well as play your favourite games and enjoy a seamless playing experience.

At the Global launch event, Microsoft claimed that the Surface Pro 4 is about 30% faster than its predecessor model, Surface 3 and about 50% faster than the Apple MacBook Air. (All the Apple fans, what you have to say about that? Huh!) In terms of storage capacity, the base model offers a 16 GB internal memory and the premium model comes with a whopping 1TB internal space. For all your connectivity needs, the Surface Pro 4 offers MiniDisplayPort, a type cover port, MicroSD card reader and USB 3.0 port.

Last but certainly not the least (are you wondering the good features list is never ending, well, it is that kind of gadget), the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 has a staggering 9 hours of battery life. For the camera lovers and the selfie enthusiasts, you would be delighted with the 8 MP rear camera and the 5 MP front facing camera. You can get your hands on all these features and more for about Rs. 8,600 (for the base model). If you want to have a fingerprint reader and keyboard, the tablet would cost you about Rs. 10,600.
