Fresh news coming from a Chinese news website, cnBeta claims that the Surface Pro 4 that will launch in 2015 will be available in two different sizes and both the devices will come preloaded with Windows 10 OS. More and more rumours of the forthcoming tablet-laptop hybrid from Microsoft, the Surface Pro 4, are swirling up.

According to Design & Trend, the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 will be launched in two different sizes. Moreover, the source even claims that Microsoft may also launch a Surface Pro Mini tablet. Citing cnBeta, Design & Trend states that instead of the previous rumours that revealed that the Surface Pro 4 will feature a 12-inch display, new speculations indicate that the Surface Pro 4 will come with a 14-inch screen. The second version of Surface Pro 4 may feature a 10-inch display with weaker specifications, says The Fuse Joplin.

It further states that even though the Surface Pro 4 is expected to feature a 14-inch display, it will support the same display resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels that is available with the Surface Pro 3 tablet. As far as the Surface Pro Mini is concerned, it is expected to feature an 8-inch display. It will be designed to take on the likes of iPad Mini and Google Nexus tablets.

Design & Trend continues to say that the Surface Pro 4 as well as the Surface Pro Mini will be powered by Intel Core M processor. The Core M CPU is said to offer longer battery life but on the performance it is not as good as the i3-series chips that are present under the hood of the Surface Pro 3 device.

The cnBeta report also reveals that compared to the predecessor model, the Surface Pro 4 may come out with a cheaper price tag. As of this writing, Microsoft has not announced an official statement on the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and Microsoft Surface Pro Mini.

When Microsoft had launched the first Surface Pro device, it received mixed reaction from the audience. Positive reviews started when the Surface Pro 2 was released into the market. The Surface Pro 3 which came in June this year has achieved overwhelming response from tech experts and general users which indicates that the Redmond giant will probably launch the successor model, the Surface Pro 4 in 2015.
