Microsoft has used its extremely impressive Windows 10 devices media event to introduce the latest addition to its smartphone and tablet range, and the new Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is one of the four. It looks like Microsoft is on form again, the newly introduced hardware has a fairly tough act to follow in the Surfcae Pro 3, which in the past managed to bring in more than $3.5 billion in revenue during its time in existence.


The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 hasn’t gone beyond its design and it’s not to be an entirely redesign either. It remains largely similar to the device that preceded it, but it does come with an improved larger screen. Bundled in a 12.3-inch PixelSense display at 267 ppi, and is 0.3-inches larger than that of the one found on the Pro 3. Actual pysical dimensions of the new hardware remain the same however, with Microsoft making room for the extra display size by shrinking the surround bezels from the equation.

What’s more aggressive is that the new Surface Pen carries an eraser (digital of course) on it tail, and is sensitive up to 1024 levels of pressure. Available in a 5 different colors, the stylus can also be used to trigger Cortana as well by hollding down the eraser, when needed.
