Microsoft is reportedly preparing to unveil its Surface Pro 4 this October although no specific date for the launch has been announced.

Digitimes reported that Microsoft has ordered mass shipment of the device components this September from its upstream supply chain.

Surface Pro 4 will retain its predecessor’s, the Surface Pro 3, ultra-thin form factor and magnesium chassis, the site added. The new Microsoft 2-in-1 device will still have a large-size display and there will be no modification on Surface Pro 3’s 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution.

Microsoft will also use Samsung SSD drives that offer up to 256 GB and will pick 16 GB RAM on its new-generation Surface lineup, Digitimes said.

Christian Today added Microsoft intends to upgrade the new Surface Pro tablet by using Skylake processor of Intel. Skylake is the latest and most powerful chipset currently available in the market.

Surface Pro 4 will also run the new Windows 10 operating system. However, Christian Today said there were no reports yet of other possible storage options for the Surface Pro 4.

Industry experts anticipate Microsoft could reach more than half a million units per month with the unveiling of the next-generation Surface Pro.

Hexus has reported Microsoft’s Surface Pro shipments have increased from 200,000 units to 300,000 units per month this year after launching Surface Pro 3 at the end of the first quarter.
