Let Me Get Back to You When I Have More Information (Formal)
“Let me get back to you when I have more information” is a great example of how to say “I will let you know” professionally. It’s a useful formal synonym that shows you need to find out more before replying to someone.

You should certainly use “let me get back to you when I have more information” over “I will let you know” in business contexts. It’s much more respectful and polite, letting people know they must wait a little longer.
Here is an example that might clear things up:
Let me get back to you when I have more information, please. I’m still sorting out the report.
Bear With Me While I Figure This Out (Informal)
“Bear with me while I figure this out” is a great informal alternative. You can use it when you want someone to wait while you find the answers they’re looking for.
For the most part, this phrase works when speaking with coworkers. If they’ve asked for help with a project, you might need to say this before you can help them. That way, you can figure out what they need before you commit to anything.
Generally, this phrase does not work in formal writing. You should stick to conversational contexts, as “bear with me” is not the most professional choice. “I will let you know” suits most professional contexts.
