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.
