Microsoft Might Finally Launch The Surface Pro 5 After Skipping A Year
The topic surrounding Microsoft's next Surface Pro has been around for quite some time now. Microsoft released the Surface Pro 4 two years ago and this meant that fans have spent the entire 2016 awaiting a successor to the popular device. Nevertheless, rumors are strong about the next-gen tablet's 2017 release.
Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Release Date
The most recent rumors about the Surface Pro 5's release date points to an April schedule. As per Tech Radar, the second major update that's expected for the Windows 10 is supposedly arriving on April 2017. With that said, there is good chance that the update will be launched alongside a new hardware. This could include the highly-awaited Surface Pro 5, a brand new edition of the Surface Book and the long-rumored but barely acknowledged Surface Phone.
Microsoft's Past Surface Pro Devices
It's worth noting that the Surface 3 has already been removed from Microsoft's US Store. As per ONMSFT, Microsoft has shared its falling sales for the said tablet, and with that, the company will be phasing it out. This makes the Surface Pro 4 the latest Surface Pro device. However, since the Pro 4 will be two years old this year, a successor is also expected. Rumor has it that the Surface Pro 5 will come in anytime soon as evidenced by the phasing out of the Surface 3 and the apparent discounts given to the Surface Pro 4.
Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Expectations
There are quite a number of rumors pointing towards the Surface Pro 5's new technologies. These include the improvements for the Surface Pen and the tablet's compatibility with the Surface Dial. It's worth noting that just one year ago, Microsoft has filed for a patent that describes a magnetic charging dock that will power the Surface Pen. As for the Surface Dial compatibility, take note that this puck-looking accessory is already compatible with the other Surface devices including the Surface Studio, Surface Book and Surface Pro 4. This means that it's already pretty obvious that it will be supported by the Surface Pro 5 as well.
