Microsoft has made another big announcement on its newest Surface Pro device. The Redmond-based tech company revealed that it is much faster than the iPad Pro and carries more battery life. How fast is the latest Surface Pro and how longer will its battery last?
Microsoft is a multinational technology company that develops, licenses, supports manufactures and sells hardware electronic devices, computer software, and service. Some of its famous software products include the Microsoft Windows line of operating system, Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer and Edge web browsers while its hardware products are the Xbox video game consoles and the Surface Pro tablet lineup.
For the past years, Microsoft has established a name of its own and has grown as one of the leading tech companies in the consumer electronic industry. And now, the Redmond-based company is once again launching the newest family of the Surface Pro product line.
According to Mac Rumors, Microsoft just recently introduced the new Surface Pro at a media event in Shanghai, China. But the Redmond-based company never named it as the Surface Pro 5 and insists that it simple as the Surface Pro device. So, how fast it is compared to the other notebook-tablet device?
The new Surface Pro is powered by Intel's latest Kaby Lake processor with a Core m3, i5 and i7 chipset depending on the chosen model. Microsoft revealed that the top-tier Surface Pro with a Core i7 processor is 2.5 times faster than the Surface Pro 3 and 1.7 times faster than Apple's iPad Pro with an A9X chipset.
The new Surface Pro will maintain its 12.3-inch display with a 267 pixel per inch as against to the 264 PPI for the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Microsoft also made the latest Surface Pro much lighter, weighing around 1.7 lbs compared to 0.96 lbs and 1.57 lbs for the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch Apple's iPad Pro models respectively.
The Verge further added that new Surface Pro will have 13.5 hours of battery life, which 50 percent power efficient than the Surface Pro 4 and 35 percent more battery life than the Apple's iPad Pro models. For the first time, Microsoft will have its latest Surface Pro with an LTE connectivity feature which will support micro SIM and eSIM.
Microsoft also disclosed other specs of the new Surface Pro that includes 1TB SSD, an Intel Iris Plus 640 graphics, a USB 3.0 port, Mini Display Port, a 3.5mm headphone jack and up to 16GB RAM.
