The newly upgraded Microsoft Surface Pro is a 2-in-1 masterpiece designed to offer a better experience than the iPad Pro from Apple. The Surface Pro 4 successor features a new design, latest Intel processors and a longer-lasting battery.

1. Design



The new Surface Pro sports premium construction with a body made of a magnesium-aluminium alloy.  The Surface Pro now comes with a redesigned hinge which lets you use it in even more modes. You can now flip the 2-in-1 as far back as 165 degrees to use it in a ‘Studio’ mode. The slim hybrid comes with an improved keyboard featuring a coated, supposedly stain-resistant Alcantara material. Microsoft says users can expect more accurate typing. The keyboard still comes as a separate accessory. You get the same great 12.3-inch display on the Surface Pro. This unit boasts a resolution of 2736 x 1824 pixels for remarkably sharp images.


2. Performance



The last time the Surface Pro tablet got an upgrade was in 2015, so the device needed an urgent update. The Windows tablet features latest seventh generation Intel Kaby Lake processors. As always, you have diverse options as regard level of performance to expect. Two of the new Surface Pro models – Core m3 and Core i5 – are fanless. Microsoft also says the new Intel Core i7 models of the 2-in-1 are the quietest ever in the line-up. Each of the CPU offerings comes with a different graphics solution – Intel HD Graphics 615, HD Graphics 620 or Iris Plus Graphics 640. Onboard RAM capacity ranges from 4 GB to 16 GB. This iPad Pro rival offers about 13 and half hours of battery life – 50% longer lasting than the Surface Pro 4.


3.  Price



The Surface Pro will start shipping from 15th June 2017 starting at $799. The Official Price for Nigeria, Ghana, and Kenya is not known for now.  The Surface Pro Will Be available on major online stores in the countries. Microsoft Surface Pro Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N295,000 depending on the model.


4.  Features



The 2-in-1 boots Windows 10 operating system. It offers full-size USB 3.0, Mini DisplayPort and microSDXC card reader amongst its port and interface options. In keeping with its tablet status, the Surface Pro offers 8MP rear camera and 5MP selfie camera. Both units can capture Full HD (1080p) videos. You also get dual microphones and stereo speakers with Dolby Audio Premium support. The hybrid has optional 4G LTE connectivity. However, models with LTE will be available much later in the year.
