2017 Microsoft Surface Pro 5: Rumored Specs, Features And Release Date


#SurfacePro5 #Microsoft – 2017 Microsoft Surface Pro 5: Rumored Specs, Features And Release Date : During Microsoft’s October 26 event, the Surface Pro 5 was noticeably left out from the released hardware. And while there are plenty of reasonable answers as to why, it did leave the public wondering how the device would look, run and fee. Fortunately, it does not seem like it will take much longer to find out.

As of now, Microsoft has not confirmed anything about the device. But if the October 16 event is anything to go by, the Redmond-based company is only starting to fire shots and has likely saved a grand reveal of its most popular line of products last. The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is set to blow its predecessors away, without losing what makes its line so unique and efficient.

According to Tech Times, the Surface Pro 5 will have a 12.3-inch PixelSense screen, which is likely to come in a 2K and a 4K variant. It is also likely to have more power than the current Surface Pro 4, as it is estimated to come with the latest Intel Kaby Lake processor as well as a generous helping of 16GB of RAM. Furthermore, an AMD or Nvidia Pascal GPU is expected to help power the unit.

Of course, the Surface Pro 5 will run on the latest operating system that Microsoft currently has, Windows 10 with the Redstone 2 update. A better battery life and improved Surface Pen is also expected to come with the hybrid. It is likely that the stylus will come with wireless charging support.

C|Net adds that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is expected to be released sometime in the Spring of 2017, so it is possible that Microsoft will hold another unveiling event within the second quarter of next year. This is a logical estimate, as it is believed the company is waiting on the 14-nanometer processor from Intel. And though it is unconfirmed, the device is also expected to be priced at around US$2,999. source:itechpost
