As the trend of thick bezels around display panels has started vanishing, the upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is now rumoured to sport ultra-thin bezels. The tablet is expected to debut with the Windows 10 operating system.

The bezels on the Surface Pro 4 will be featured in a way similar to the new Dell XPS 13 notebook, reports WinBeta. While the top and side bezels are rumoured to be razor-sharp, the bottom bezel is said to be thick, might be due to a physical Windows key. The key would take Microsoft's tablet closer to the recently announced Apple iPad Pro that has a Touch ID-equipped home button.

Apart from the ultra-thin bezels, the new Surface Pro model is said to come with 'Smart Frame' feature that will automatically transform the frame size depending on desktop or tablet mode on Windows 10. This is likely to be more as a software-centric feature than a hardware one and would just change the screen size of the user interface.

The new feature would give an edge to the Surface Pro 4 to compete with some of the popular Windows running 2-in-1 devices in the market. Also, it would be helpful to all users who need a highly productive tablet for their professional use.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 will be the successor to last year's Surface Pro 3. The new tablet is expected to come with an advanced hybrid functionality to take on some of the recent offerings, including the Apple iPad Pro and Google Pixel C. Further, it would come with a 13-inch display and be powered by the latest Intel Skylake processor.

In addition to the Surface Pro 4, Microsoft is expected to bring new Windows 10 running Lumia series smartphones at its October 6 event. The Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL are rumoured to be the upcoming Lumia smartphones and both are expected to feature 20-megapixel PureView camera sensors.
