Microsoft is going to release a new version of their Surface Pro. This device is going to be named Microsoft Surface Pro 5. The release date might be set for March. Microsoft will not reveal a lot of details about this device until they are going to present it at a special meeting.
Although there are no official details about the device, there are a lot of rumors about it. Some of those rumors suggest that we should expect a lot of upgrades for Microsoft Surface Pro 5. The last 2-in-1 device, Microsoft Surface Pro 4 was released in October 2015. Although people were expecting to see Microsoft Surface Pro 5 unveiled at their event in October 2016, this did not happen.
The release date is now going to be in 2017. One of the things that led many to believe that the release date is going to be this spring is the fact that the Windows 10 update is going to be then. The update for Windows 10 was also delayed.
Another leak mentioned that the manufacturing contract for this device is going to Pegatron. The same company that makes Surface Studio. The same report mentioned that Surface Pro 5 is going to have a 4K display. This means that it is going to recharge wirelessly.
It is also rumored that the device is going to be released in March, after an official announcement. There are many other rumors including the fact that Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is going to us a Qualcomm Snapdragon 635 processor. Until now it was believed that the device is going to use Intel Kaby Lake as a processor.
The Snapdragon processor is a better choice, some may say because it means that the device will have a longer battery life. It is also believed that it is going to have LTE for mobile connectivity. Some may disagree with the Snapdragon rumor because for Microsoft it is a more logical choice to go with the Intel Core processor.
None of these details come from an official source and this is why it is better to wait for the official announcement from Microsoft before speculating about Microsoft Surface Pro 5. Let’s hope that the announcement comes fast.
