Microsoft Surface Pro 5: Dramatic Changes Not Expected
The latest in the line of Microsoft's hybrid tablet, Surface Pro 5, is not expected to have any radical changes in its hardware. It will indeed receive updates, although those will be directed towards its software.
One of the rumors surrounding the Surface Pro 5 says that it will be shipped with Intel's Kaby Lake as its processor. It turned out to be true, as it was recently confirmed by Microsoft pundit Paul Thurrott. Furthermore, the savant's sources told him that the upcoming device will retain the power connector its predecessor had.
This could be in line with Microsoft's promise to Surface Pro 3 users that their accessories would still be usable on Surface Pro 3. However, The Verge pointed out this does not mean that the company will completely forego a USB-C connection. If they opted to do that, then it would be a surprising choice indeed. That is because most Windows-compatible PC producers are now switching to the new-fangled port for their latest portable computers.
Hardware aside, Forbes wrote about Microsoft's focus on their cloud services as well as the Windows 10 operating system. This way, Surface Pro 5 developers and engineers do not have to come up with innovative ways to pull in more customers. That is because the company's partners also sell more of the operating systems than they actually do. And like this, they can show what existing hardware is capable of with the help software innovations and cloud services in Windows 10.
Aside from those things, there are no other details forthcoming. But it might not be a long time until Microsoft release official specifications for the Surface Pro 5. Company watchers still expect them to have a special launch event for their hybrid device during their annual spring affair. At that time, the Redmond company could also announce other updates. Nevertheless, as Thurrott already said, people should not expect any dramatic change to the device because none will be forthcoming.
