Microsoft will reportedly unveil the Surface Pro 4 this month at its annual BUILD developers conference, though the device may not launch until a few months later. The news comes from DigiTimes and its supply chain sources, who have a pretty mixed track record when it comes to this kind of thing.

Still, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a Surface Pro 4 unveiled in the near future. It’s been just under 11 months since the Surface Pro 3 was announced, and BUILD could be a good opportunity to show Windows 10 software running on some cutting-edge hardware. Sure, Microsoft just announced the Surface 3 last month, but that’s powered by a lower-powered Intel Atom chip.

According to DigiTimes, the Surface Pro 4 will enter mass production sometime in June. It could be timed for release alongside Windows 10, which is set for a global launch this summer.

We’re not really sure what to expect from the Surface Pro 4, though an upgraded display and a new processor seem likely. We may also get a better Surface Pen following rumors earlier this year that Microsoft was acquiring a stylus supplier. We’ll be looking out for any more information moving forward, and hopefully Microsoft will have something to share later this month at BUILD 2015.
