Last November saw the launch of the highly successful Microsoft Surface Pro 4, and now some months behind us attention within the industry inevitably turns to the Surface Pro 5 release date.
Speculation is rife across leading technology websites, with some experts guessing as early as late 2016, however the evidence points to a more likely rumour which is a launch in Spring 2017.
ZDNet reported that Microsoft has put back the second part of its Microsoft Windows 10 Redstone update until Spring 2017, with a view to showcasing the new software features across new Surface devices including the Microsoft Surface Book 2 and Surface Pro 5, which incidentally might feature Intel’s next generation Core processors which have been codenamed Kaby Lake.
Speculation relating to any technical specification of future devices should always be treated with great caution, however these rumours include Surface Pro 5 coming with a 2K screen with options for a 4K model, and that the Surface Pen bundled stylus will be updated to contain a wireless rechargeable battery, charging when attached magnetically to the Surface Pro 5.
Whatever the release date and technical specification, we’ll be sure to keep you updated as and when firm news becomes available in due course from Microsoft.
