Microsoft will be rolling out the much anticipated Surface Pro 4 tablet this October. After so much speculation, The Verge reveals that this company will finally put a rest the many rumors surrounding the launch date of this device in a few weeks’ time.
Lumia 950 and 950XL to be launched alongside Microsoft Surface Pro 4
Microsoft will use its annual event to unveil this new Surface Pro 4 device to its millions of users across the globe. This annual event will not just be used by Microsoft to launch the Surface Pro 4. The report also notes that there are lots of other new gadgets and technologies that the company is expected to launch together with this tablet.
Among the most touted devices are two anticipated Lumia smartphones in the shape of Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL. Also, there are rumors spreading around suggesting that Microsoft will also use this event to release the much awaited Microsoft Band 2. However, this might not be the case as there is no official confirmation of the other gadgets that will be launched alongside this Pro 4 device. There are also some reports coming from other sources claiming that we might again see another slimmer version of Xbox One. If this is true to say, this event will for sure be huge.
A case in point is last year’s event where Microsoft had planned to roll out a Surface Mini version alongside the Surface Pro 3, but it did not materialize as the device was scrapped a few weeks before this launch date.
