Rumors surrounding Surface Pro 5’s release date started appearing right from the moment that Microsoft launched Surface Pro back on May 23rd in Shanghai. Now that we have a more enhanced version of Surface Pro 4, the next product that Microsoft will unveil must be Surface Pro 5.
We should also mention that a French website that’s an official Microsoft partner made an error and leaked a picture of Surface Pro 5 a couple of months ago.
Nonetheless, the highly anticipated device was expected to come out back in March alongside Microsoft’s Windows 10 Creators Update. Sadly, this wasn’t the case since Microsoft decided to not unveil Surface Pro 5.
Surface Pro 5 Expected Release Date
Even though Surface Pro 5 wasn’t launched alongside Windows 10 Creators Update, many analysts are speculating that the device is still going to be launched during 2017.
Moreover, Surface Pro 5 is expected to be unveiled on October 31st during Microsoft’s panel at the Future Decoded event which takes places in London.
Microsoft’s Surface Pro lineup is renowned for always featuring the latest hardware specs. According to a series of Tweets from Paul Thurrot who is a Microsoft informant, it seems like Surface Pro 5 is going to continue this tradition.
The informant is claiming that Surface Pro 5 will be equipped with Intel’s latest 7th generation Kaby Lake processor. If this rumor proves to be true then it means that Surface Pro 5 is going to be one of the most powerful hybrid tablets ever made.
Moreover, the information is also claiming that Surface Pro 5 will not feature a USB Type-C charging or data transfer port and it will use a proprietary charger instead. Also, another hardware component that we can be sure Microsoft will bundle Surface Pro 5 is with a new stylus.
