Microsoft Surface Pro 5 To Come With Android 7.0 Nougat OS ? : Though Microsoft could not deliver the 2-in-1PC tablet this year but the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is amongst the most predictable devices of 2017. Headlines & Global News reported that this tech company is planning to bring the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 in two variants. These will be Windows and Android operating systems.
Fans were expecting the release of Surface Pro 5 during the meet that Microsoft organized in October this year. Fans were astonished when the company unveiled the new Windows 10 update and new surface studio.
It is the software side that is causing the delay of this tablet. According to rumors, this upcoming device will sport the propriety Windows 10 operating system, as well as the Android OS.
The Windows 10 version of this device will be powered by Windows 10 Redstone Update that will be released next year. The android version is having Android 7.0 Nougat which was launched earlier this year.
Such a variation in the operating systems which are powered by same models is not a new thing in the tech world. Both these operating systems Windows 10 and Android OS can be seen in Lenovo Yoga Book. In the case of Surface Pro, 5 fans will have the choice of customizing their device.
It is also believed that Microsoft has applied for a new patent for Surface Pen support on the Surface Pro 5. If this happens the new technology will allow the Surface Pen to get charged when in contact with the Microsoft Surface Pro 5. This device may come with USB Type-C charging port which is excellent for faster data transfers in modern day devices.
Critics opine that using Android OS on Surface Pro 5 is something unusual. In fact, it is a rumor because Microsoft would never use a product of Google for its device. Similarly, Apple is protective about its iOS software’s which are exclusively made for iOS devices. Source: counselheal
