The Surface Pro 5 is Microsoft's long-awaited 2 in 1 tablet that would follow the success of the Surface Pro 4. While the company has been keeping mum on the matters regarding the Pro 5's release date, reports suggest that it's almost sure that the device will be released this year. Apparently, Microsoft already skipped 2016 in launching the next-gen tablet. This is why many people believe that the company has no reason to push the Pro 5's release even further unless they decide to suspend the series.
Microsoft Surface Pro 5 New Rumors
Needless to say, there have already been a bunch of rumors about the Surface Pro 5. Recent reports suggest that the device will support more of Microsoft's new products. This includes the Hololens and the Surface Dial. IB Times said that Hololens was originally reported to not be a part of the Surface Pro 5. However, since Microsoft seems to be rolling out the new technology to more headsets, the Surface Pro 5 is also expected to support Hololens.
Moreover, the Surface Dial is also expected to be compatible with the next-gen Surface Pro tablet. This relatively new Microsoft product was launched in October and has primarily been designed for the Surface Studio. Basically, the Surface Dial is a Bluetooth-enabled accessory that is pretty much like a mouse, only that it has a different set of features. This tool can have custom functionalities depending on the users' needs.
