Microsoft Surface 5 Release Date Set For April, Equipped With Kaby Lake CPU
Microsoft Surface Pro 5 fans were sorely disappointed when the long-awaited device failed to make an appearance at the recent Mobile World Congress. Fortunately, reports indicate that it will launch next month. What's even more exciting is the news that it will come with a Kaby Lake processor.
With the success of the Surface Pro 4, people were high on Microsoft's next 2-in-1 device. However, the 2017 MWC came and went without a glimpse of a new Surface Pro. Recent reports, however, say that the Surface Pro 5 will finally be unveiled in April alongside other highly anticipated devices, the HoloLens and Xbox Project Scorpio. Microsoft will be holding its Windows 10 Creators Update event next month and many believe that the company will use this soiree as the Surface Pro 5's jumping-off point.
There were at least a couple of images leaked earlier which indicate that a Surface Pro 5 is in the works. Both leaks apparently came from Microsoft itself. The first one was an image of the device itself posted on the official French website of Microsoft which had a file name of "win10-feature-surface-pro-5-z". The other one came from Microsoft product designer Toby Fitch whose LinkedIn post showed that he is working on the Surface pro 5. Fitch claimed he and his team are tasked with developing "new speech models with multidisciplinary design approach" for the Surface Pro 5, the HoloLens and Xbox. They are supposedly also working on mixed reality computing.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 was named the best tablet at the 2017 MWC but News4C believes the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 would have taken home the award had it been launched at the event. The main reason why the Surface Pro 5 could've won is its processor. According to rumors, the Pro 5 will come with the new Kaby lake CPU.
The long-awaited successor to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which was released back in October 2015, is also rumored to sport a 4K display, 8GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal memory space. The Surface Pro 5 will also come with USB-Type C ports and a rechargeable Surface Pen.
