Microsoft was supposed to launch the Microsoft Surface 4 as a successor to the Surface 3 in around 2016, as history suggested. It should have removed the capacitive Windows logo from the display, just like the company did to the Surface Pro 4.
We think the company didn’t release the Surface 4 because Intel didn’t release any substantial improvement for low TDP processors. The company had to wait over three years to announce the next generation of 10-inch Surface tablets in 2018 as a new lineup, Surface Go.
