The much awaited Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is rumored to come out with the new Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL, according to a recent Cross Map report. The article also says that the new devices would likely be unveiled during the release date of the Windows 10, which is reportedly going to happen in July.

"We believe the best time to bring those flagship devices to market is when we have our very latest flagship software experience available. We're focusing our flagship development for slightly later when Windows 10 is available," Microsoft Phone Marketing Director Neil Broadley was quoted in the report saying.

Broadley did not mention any specific handsets but Cross Map bets it's going to be the Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL. In our previous report, we detailed about the new devices' possible specs and features. The Lumia 940 is believed to be a 5.2-incher device with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, Snapdragon 808 processor, 32 GB of storage, 3GB of RAM, and 17/20-megapixel main camera. The Lumia 940 XL meanwhile is a larger version of the device.

Going back to the Surface Pro 4, Cross Map said that the device is expected to be released in August or September, though there are also speculations that it would be in October.

The International Business Times earlier reported that it is likely that the new laplet would come out this July, during the launch of the Windows 10. The July launch of the Windows 10 was confirmed by The Verge citing AMD president and CEO Lisa Su who said: "With the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching sort of the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory build-up."

Industry analyst Paul Mueller however was quoted in an Inquisitr report saying that the new Surface Pro 4 would likely arrive in October. "The Surface Pro 3 is selling just as well as it did when it first came out. Even though people expected a June or July release for the Pro 4, it probably won't happen until Windows 10 is released. That way, Microsoft could capitalize on both Windows 10 and the new Surface Pro at the same time," Mueller was quoted as saying.

BGR speculated that the new Microsoft laplet would be available in two size options -- a 12-inch one and a 14-inch one. It is said to have an Intel Core i5 processor or a Core i7 processor and a 16 GB of RAM. There were also reports that it might be LTE-capable. Microsoft has not yet confirmed any of these speculations.
