(UPDATED: See the new Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.)
We are a just couple of days away from Microsoft’s Windows 10 Device event on October 6 in New York, and the second purported spec for a possible new Surface Pro 4 has surfaced.
According to ar.w4phub.com the new Microsoft Surface Pro 4 will feature a Smart Frame, and this Smart Frame is simply a on-screen bezel that appears on the display when the tablet is picked up from desktop mode when the tablet has a 13.3-inch display with no bezel to hold on to, and through the Windows 10 feature Continuum automatically switches over to tablet mode which shrinks the display to 12 inches and adds a on-screen bezel frame so we can touch the tablet without accidentally engage something.
If this somehow turns out to be true then it might explain why there’s been rumors about two separate 12-inch and up-to-14-inch Surface Pro 4 tablets the last two months.
The Continuum feature of switching from desktop to tablet mode in Windows 10 is something people are probably familiar with already, but the dynamic bezel feature would be a new touch.
But despite being just four days away from the event, no other spec leaks than the purported two above have seeped through yet, which is a pretty impressive feat by Microsoft, although Microsoft UK managed to accidentally post images of the two upcoming phones Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL a few days ago on their website. But the Surface Pro 3 was cut by $100 two weeks ago, and Microsoft have started selling refurbished Surface Pro 3’s too, which is the kind of maneuver usually regarded as a sign of a successor coming to replace it soon.
From our own research we have found very little information about new devices from Microsoft lately, apart from the two FCC sketches below. But if you have any leaks, you know what to do.
