What's This?

The release date for Microsoft Surface Pro 4 has been delayed. It is now expected to enter the market in the second half of 2016.


The release date of the laplet, earlier reported as June 29 along with the launch of Windows 10, comes after a deal was signed recently with Samsung Electronics for SSD supply contract.

A deal was signed between the two companies, according to which Samsung will deliver 20 million units of 256 GB SSDs for Microsoft laptops in the second half of 2016, as reported by Business Korea.

Techie Times reports that the SSDs, which use Samsung’s Non-Volatile Memory express (NVMe) technology, can transfer data at a speed of 2 GB/s. This is more than three times the speed of Surface Pro 4’s predecessor – Surface Pro 3 transferred data at 600 MB/s.

If the units will be used in Surface Pro 4, there is a very strong likelihood that the release date of the laplet may get pushed to the second half of 2016.

Surface Pro 4 will be available in 12 inch or 14-inch display. Both of the sizes will have 2,160 x 1,440 pixel resolution and will operate on Windows 10.

According to The New York Times, Microsoft will be downsizing its workforce by six percent.

    second half of 16? Seems like an awful long delay for a drive speed upgrade. Seems more like they should use that in the 5 or 4.5 but wow, talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face. I’d think they’d want a shiny new object to go along with 10.

      I hope this is the case. From the reading I have done it seems far more likely that it would get pushed to September for the Skylake processor. Considering it’s been a year since the Pro 3 came out, it would make a lot more sense to include the fancy new SSD in the Pro 5.

      At least this is what I want to happen considering I am up for a new machine at work and I REALLY want a Pro 4…

    Windows 10 needs to be revamped for tablets. Everything about Windows 10 is a major downgrade compared to Windows 8.1. You do not want this new OS on a tablet, yet.

    Laplet? That’s a horrible term. Tablet, 2-in-1, anything but laplet.
