Microsoft Surface Pro 5 has been the target of leaks and rumors ever since last year and still, there is no official announcement from the company yet. With all of these things taking rounds on the internet about the Surface Pro 5, it now includes a new rumor about the Windows 10 Cloud, a completely different product by the American multinational tech company.
In a recent report, Microsoft-watcher Paul Thurrott announced some new information about the highly awaited hybrid device in his tweet. Thurrott stated that specs wise, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will indeed use a 7th-generation Kaby Lake processor. According to a source, Thurrott, also made it a point to liken the upcoming convertible tablet into a "Surface Pro 4.5" of sorts. Another interesting revelation from Thurrott claims that Surface Pro 5 may not use USB-C to restore the battery as most 2-in-1 devices tend to do nowadays.

The device is expected to come with a 12.3-inch screen, 4K UltraHD display, 512GB of storage, 16GB of RAM and an upgraded Surface Pen stylus alongside with wireless charging feature. The Surface Pro 5 might be possibly powered by AMD's new Ryzen family of processors, in addition to Intel's Kaby Lake chips. But, details are still uncertain, though some reports suggest that Microsoft might release an AMD-based variant as well as the expected Intel versions. Also, there are claims that the Surface Pro 5 might support Microsoft's Windows 10 Creator's Update including the Hololens and the Surface Dial on release.
Microsoft is widely expected to take the wraps off the Surface Pro 5 most likely alongside other Surface-branded devices at Microsoft's Build developer conference which is set to start on May 10th until the 12th in Seattle. Furthermore, Microsoft Surface pricing has barely fluctuated year after year. Fans will expect to see the Surface Pro 5 around $899 depending on configured hardware as well as bundled accessories.
