Microsoft Surface Pro 4 coming at special event in mid-May?
Microsoft’s Build 2015 press conference may have come and gone without an appearance from the long-awaited Surface Pro 4, but we may not have to wait too long for the flagship hybrid.
Rather than lose it within the shuffle of a software based event, Microsoft plans to give the Surface Pro 4 centre stage at its own specially-convened event, according to one report on Thursday.
SlashGear has received word from an anonymous source claiming Microsoft plans to reveal the device in mid-May.
This would tie in with the launch of the current Surface Pro 3 on May 20 last year, the report points out.

The new laptop/tablet was a somewhat surprise omission from the proceedings during day one of Build on Thursday, especially given a considerably detailed spec leak that arrived in the run up to proceedings.
Chinese site 36KR claimed the device will be ‘significantly thinner’ than the incumbent and will feature a fanless design like the recently announced Surface 3. The report claimed it’ll have a 12-inch 2160 x 1440 display with the Intel Core i-series Broadwell processors on board.
The company said yesterday it is hoping get 1 billion devices on Windows 10 within two years.
