Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Update: Features 4K Display, Kaby Lake Processor
The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is a highly-anticipated device, having a lot of people waiting for an official announcement from Microsoft. According to several tech reports, the device may not be released until the spring of this year, 2017.
Some important specs to know
According to reports, Microsoft could potentially be planning to launch its updated Surface Pro 5 in March 2017, with the hybrid two-in-one tablet might potentially have an optional keyboard cover.
Supply chain and parts manufacturer leaks and rumors have revealed that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be powered by an Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake low-energy processor.
It will be coming in three models, namely, Core m (dual-core), Core i5 (dual-core with two threads) and Core i7 (quad-core with eight threads). These highly-advanced processors have much higher turbo frequencies, faster clock speeds, and an overall better battery life.
3D & 4K resolution
An IPS Touch is more likely a possibility than a Super AMOLED screen. The resolution could possibly be 4320 x 2160 pixels. The device will also come along with a USB-C port, 3.1 with Thunderbolt. Several leaks have also hinted at different DDR4 RAM variants, starting at 16GB and going up to 32GB.
There will be 512GB to 1TB SSD along with an SD card support. The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be released along with the Windows 10 Redmond 3 update. A fingerprint scanner could also be incorporated on the optional keyboard based on rumors about a larger glass trackpad with a wider key spacing.
The device may potentially have a starting price of $899. However, the new Kaby Lake may not hit the market in the first half of 2017. This is because Microsoft has recently announced an all-new power base for its popular Surface Book.
As per reports, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 may be featuring a Surface stylus with magnetic charging capabilities.
