#SurfacePro5 #SurfaceBook2 – Surface Book 2, Pro 5 release updates: Devices unlikely to be unveiled later this month : While the rumors claiming that Microsoft is holding an event later this month to launch its latest Surface products are becoming more persistent, some skeptics believe that it is unlikely for the Surface Pro 5 to be released this year.
Talks on Microsoft hosting an event on Oct. 26 have been around for quite a while now, and they’re becoming louder and louder with each passing day.
While the alleged event is suspected to be the venue where the Redmond-based company will unveil several of its hardware, including an All-in-One PC, Surface Book 2, the rumored Surface Phone, and the Surface Pro 5, new reports claim that it’s unlikely to be the case.
According to pundits, as the Surface Book 2 and the Surface Pro 5 are rumored to pack the Intel Kaby Lake processor, which is rumored not to be available earlier than January 2017, it is unlikely for the two devices to be launched later this month.
Another reason pointed out why the Surface Book 2 and the Surface Pro 5 are unlikely to be unveiled later this month is that it is also believed that the said devices will come with the Windows 10 Redstone 2 update.
As, reportedly, the update will come in two installments, with the first one to arrive in June next year, it is another reason why it’s impossible for the Surface Book 2 and the Surface Pro 5 to be launched this year.
Hence, despite the loud rumors on the Microsoft’s alleged upcoming event, it is said that Microsoft fans won’t get lucky in laying their hands on the Surface Book 2 and the Surface Pro 5 before the year ends.
So, does this mean that the rumored event will only cast the spotlight on the All-in-One PC and the rumored Surface Phone? No one outside Microsoft really knows at this point in time.
Apart from the speculations on the release date, though, there are also allegations saying that the Surface Pro 5 may come with its own keyboard cover. However, allegedly, the accessory will be sold separately, which means additional cost for its would-be owners.
Heartbreaking as the news can be for those who have long expected the arrival of the Surface Book 2 and the Surface Pro 5, nothing is confirmed at this point in time. Hence, fans are advised to take the aforementioned information with a grain of salt. Source: ecumenicalnews
