If leaked information turn out to be true, the highest end Surface Pro 3 will cost $1,949

Microsoft is holding a press event tomorrow afternoon in New York City in which it's believed the company will unveil at least one new Surface product line. Speculation up to this point has been that a Surface Mini category to compete with similar sized tablets and slates in the Android and iOS space is imminent, though there's also been chatter of a Surface Pro 3 line. One site even claims to have learned specification and pricing information for Microsoft upcoming Surface Pro 3 .

The folks at Windows Phone Central didn't say where they're getting their information from, only that they've come across details of the new Surface Pro 3 products. According to WMP's info, there will be five versions consisting of the following baseline configurations:

  • Intel Core i3, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage: $799
  • Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage: $999
  • Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage: $1,299
  • Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage: $1,549
  • Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, 512GB storage: $1,949

According to WMP , the Surface Pro 3 is expected to be a larger model than previous Surface devices, perhaps around 12 inches. This would explain why the site believes Microsoft is also launching new Type Covers, which will come in black, purple, cyan, and red (may be limited to Microsoft Stores).

Stay tuned -- we'll have more information tomorrow!
