New Delhi [India], Feb 22 (ANI): Microsoft on Thursday announced the availability of the new Surface Pro laptop and its accessories for retail purchase in India in online stores (Amazon and Flipkart) as well as Croma, Reliance, Vijay Sales, and other authorized retailers in India at a starting price of Rs. 64,999.

The new Surface Pro has been redesigned from the inside out to give more performance with improved battery life. Everything has been streamlined and refined - from softer, rounded edges to cameras built to fade into the bezel. At just 8.5mm thin and starting at 767 grams, the new Surface Pro packs the power of a 7th generation Intel Core processor into a new design.

The Surface Pro features up to 13.5 hours of battery life, providing unmatched versatility and mobility in a lighter, more refined design.

"We are delighted to announce the launch of Surface Pro in India and offer our consumers another superior device that will enable them create, study, work and play virtually anywhere. We continue to push boundaries to better serve the needs of our customers who are seeking greater mobility and power in their devices to stay productive. The new Surface Pro delivers the versatility of a laptop and a creative studio in one thin, lightweight device," said Microsoft India Director - Windows and Devices, Vineet Durani.

The Surface Pro features a high-resolution 12.3" PixelSense touch display that supports the new Surface Pen, the fastest pen ever. Twice as accurate as the previous version (with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity for increased accuracy and responsiveness), inking in applications across Windows 10 and Microsoft Office 3654, including the new Microsoft Whiteboard app, will unlock ways for people to use digital ink to be more creative, collaborative and productive.

With a new hinge that adjusts to 165 degrees, people can now put Surface Pro into Studio Mode, creating the optimal position to write or sketch. New tilt functionality detects the angle of the Surface Pen to enable more natural shading. The Surface Pen will be available in Silver and Charcoal colors.

The new Surface Pro Signature Type Cover delivers a high-quality scissor mechanism and 1.3 mm of key travel for faster and more accurate typing. A full-size glass trackpad with five-finger multi-touch capabilities allows for ultimate precision, and the entire keyboard is wrapped in soft yet durable Alcantara material, creating a comfortable palm rest and beautiful aesthetic. The Signature Type Cover will be available in Platinum and Black.

The new Surface Pro will be available from today in a price range of Rs. 64,999 to Rs. 1, 82,999, depending on the specification required. (ANI)
