Microsoft is expected to reveal the Surface Pro 4 sometime soon. The device is expected to come with a 12-inch display – however, according to a new report, Microsoft is planning to release large-sized tablets with displays bigger than 12-inch for enterprise customers. The report comes from Digitimes, so take it with a truckload of salt.
The report states that Microsoft Surface tablet “will feature a large-size display”. To be honest, the report doesn’t really reveal much about the Surface device other than the display size:
As demand for tablets has been weakening, tablet brand vendors worldwide have been adjusting their strategies for the product line. Apple and Microsoft are both planning to release large-size tablets or 2-in-1s with displays bigger than 12-inch, while Asustek Computer and Samsung Electronics are pushing inexpensive high-spec models. Hewlett-Packard (HP), Acer and Micro-Star International (MSI) have turned to the industrial tablet market.

Personally, I’m very skeptical about a larger Surface device from Microsoft. So again, take the report with a truckload of salt. Nonetheless, discuss what you think of a Surface device with a display bigger than 12-inch in the comment section below.
