New Microsoft ‘Surface Pro 5’ updates: If new reports are anything to go by, Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is coming pretty soon.
Microsoft has not said anything about the Surface Pro 5. It appears that the forthcoming gadget will rock the hybrid portable enterprise device market in 2017.
Several reports indicate that the Redmond giant will launch a hybrid device that will be equipped with Kaby Lake processors. The decision of the company to launch SP 5 early next year instead of this year seems to target the launch of Intel’s newest chipset.
With Kaby Lake processors, Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will stand far beyond than its rivals particularly the forthcoming iPad Pro 2. If rumors are to be believed, the Apple device will also launch next year.
Moreover, the Windows 10 Redstone 2 operating system is scheduled for early next year.
It is said that the upcoming Surface Pro 5 will pack in a 16GB of RAM and will be powered by Intel’s Kaby Lake processor, CNET reported.
Furthermore, according to an iDigital Times report, Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will reportedly feature the Nvidia Pascal GPU card and the improved battery with USB-C support.
Many reports suggest that the Surface Pro 5 will be equipped with 1TB of storage and 16GB of RAM. One thing that will certainly give the SP 5 an edge over the Apple iPad Pro 2 is the OS used in the two devices.
The Apple iPad Pro 2 will most probably still run iOS operating system. Apple iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface Pro 4 were two of the most awaited devices that were launched last year. The SP 4 was unveiled at the starting of October last year, and a month later, the iPad Pro was launched.
According to reports, the base model of the Surface Pro 5 will begin at $899 and the 4K UHD model will reportedly cost about $1,599.
