Microsoft Surface Pro 4 just had a price drop and this led to theories that the company is liquidating its stock to give way to the Surface Pro 5. There is still no release date for Microsoft's flagship device but the company has been busy with promoting the Surface Pro 4 and going as far as giving huge discounts for the device.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Price Drop
The Microsoft store in the U.K. was reportedly the first store to give as much as 15 percent off the Surface Pro's low to mid-tier configurations. Customers who had the voucher code could avail of the said discount. The Microsoft stores in the United States followed suit in less than 24 hours. With this newest promotion, buyers can avail of a $100 discount for the Surface Pro 4 M3 model that does not have a stylus. In Australia, the configuration that had no stylus pen had an AU$450 discount. Given the company's efforts to dispose of the Surface Pro 4, many buyers are curious if this will pave the way for its newest device.
Microsoft Creators Update
Microsoft has a lot of exciting plans for the year and one of this is definitely the Creators update that improved the gaming capability of its devices. This update is scheduled for release early this year and it was delayed so the company can launch it alongside its newest Surface device. Coupled with the price drop for the Surface Pro 4, it would not be surprising if Microsoft unveils the Surface Pro 5 soon.
Whether Microsoft plans to launch the Surface Pro 5 early in 2017 or not, there is no denying that this is the perfect opportunity to buy a Surface Pro 4. Meanwhile, those who want the Surface Pro 5 should be saving up as it seems that the newest device from Micsoroft could have a hefty price.
