It's been several months since Microsoft announced a new Surface tablet, and today, Microsoft has announced the Surface Pro 4.

The Surface Pro 4 features a 12.3-inch display that's capable of delivering 5 million pixels, a 0.4mm Gorilla Glass (GG4), 1.1mm backlight, and has a G5 Custom chipset that's manufactured by Microsoft.

The company has made a number of changes to the new Pen, which includes a tail eraser, all-year battery life, and 1,024 points of pressure. Storing the pen on the Surface Pro 4 has also been made easier as the tablet now has a natrual Pen Storage, which appears to clip on to the device through magnets. The Pen will also have interchangable pen tips that offers a different feel to its tip.

The Surface Pro 4 is 30% faster than last year's Surface Pro 3 and now offers up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage.

Microsoft revealed a number of accessories for the Surface Pro 4, which includes the Surface docking station and a new typecover. The Surface docking station includes four USB 3.0 ports, two 4K DisplayPort and Gigabit Eternet. The typecover features an integrated backlight, a 40% larger trackpad, and comes in five color options.

The Surface Pro 4 will retail for $899 and is available for pre-order on October 7 and will go on sale starting October 26.
