A Microsoft support article on their website has seemingly revealed the Surface Pro 3, roughly a week before the originally planned announcement date.
The article stated that a future update for Windows 8.1 “adds support to the Surface Pro 3 camera”. The article was quickly removed, further confirming suspicions of a forthcoming release for the tablet for some.
An event has been scheduled by Microsoft for May 20th in New York City, the event has been billed as ‘Surface-themed’, probably meaning the Surface Pro 3 will be detailed and potentially demoed in just 4 days from now at the time of writing. Another Surface project the tentatively titled ‘Surface Mini’ is also rumoured to be billed for that event.
The Surface Mini has been billed to include a 7.5-inch 1440×1080-pixel resolution display with a 4:3 aspect ratio, a Qualcomm processor and the latest version of the Windows RT operating system by online sources, an approximation of specs which will most likely be confirmed on release.

The ‘Surface-themed’ release was going to make an appearance at Microsoft’s Build conference in the early weeks of April, but at that particular event it was overshadowed by Windows operating system themed releases.
Hopefully we will see release dates and potentially specifications for both the Surface Pro 3 and the Surface Mini at the upcoming event on April 20th. Watch the web for more info.
