Rumors and speculations on the Apple iPad Pro 2's release and specifications have been circling online now. Yet, the Cupertino-based company remains quiet about it. In spite of that, some reports are claiming that the tech giant is now preparing for the release if its upcoming flagship 2-in-1 device.
In the mean time, not outdone is Microsoft's upcoming Surface Pro 5. The company is expected to release the tablet with its very own Surface Pen. However, if someone is still currently unsure regarding which 2-in-1 gadget to go for, here’s a quick review of the next generation hybrids.
The Apple iPad Pro 2
Apple launched a new iPad but, it was not the Pro 2 that many people have been waiting for. According to The Christian Post, Apple could probably launch the 2-in-1 device iPad Pro 2 in the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June alongside with iOS 11. Also, the iPad will likely have a slimmer, lighter slate and 0.3mm thickness thanks to the slimmed-down bezel design. The weight of the 12.9-inch iPad is approximated to 713g.
Aside from the usual features of iPad such as the 3D Touch display and Touch ID fingerprint sensor, Apple will also introduce a new A10X chip. The iPad Pro 2 is rumored to be water-resistant and will no 3.5mm headphone port at all. There's no official news on the pricing yet of the gadget but the 12.9-inch tablet is expected to be $799.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 5
The successor of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5,4, which is the Surface Pro 4, was launched in October 2015. With that, October 2016 seems to be the most probable release date for Microsoft's next 2-in1 gadget. However, at its October Windows event, the new Surface series was limited to the new Surface Studio and Surface Book i7, according to PCAdvisor.
Microsoft is said to be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 635 processor instead of an Intel Kaby Lake chip for the Surface Pro 5. The benefits of this strategy would be a longer battery life and the addition of LTE signal for mobile connectivity. The Surface Pen, which is said to be the unique stylus for the Surface Pro tablets, will charge wirelessly when attached to the $999 2-in-1 tablet magnetically.
iPad Pro 2 and Surface Pro 5 are both highly-anticipated 2-in-1 devices this year. The specifications of the Microsoft gadget is more fantastic compared to its predecessor. However, if prices are to be considered, Apple's iPad Pro 2 is worth to buy.
