Although there is no official confirmation on the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 release date, speculations claimed that the laptop-tablet hybrid will be revealed in early 2017.
People think that Microsoft Surface Pro 5 release is coming soon as the tech giant has offered large discounts on its predecessor Microsoft Surface Pro 4 on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Microsoft has not revealed the details of the upcoming tablet-laptop hybrid, but many people speculated on the features of the device. It seems that Microsoft wants a huge upgrade on its new laptop as it will feature the next-gen Kaby Lake processor from Intel.
Kaby Lake is 14nm processor announced this year. Microsoft announced earlier this year that only Windows 10 supports Kaby Lake chipset.
Releasing Windows 10 this year is a major milestone for the tech giant. Microsoft is now hard at work developing the next major update for Windows 10.
Titled “Creative Update”, this next update is scheduled to launch in early 2017 and will focus on productivity and creativity improvements for the desktop, and will bring much-needed features and enhancements to Windows 10 Mobile Continuum users.
The upcoming laptop will also pack a stylus Surface Pen. Lastly, the device will pack a wireless charging feature.
Meanwhile, Microsoft just announced the new Surface Studio and Surface Book i7 as new members of the Surface family. It is most probably that Microsoft delayed the release of Surface Pro 5 to avoid stealing the spotlight of the new devices and the media and consumers will focus on the features they offer. Moreover, holding back the Pro 5 will prevent it from cannibalizing the sales of the new Surfaces.
