Rumors are rife about the capabilities of this year’s Surface Pro 5. The Microsoft gadget was widely expected to be released back in October 2016, but the annual Windows Event only saw the company release its new Surface Studio and Surface Book i7. Analysts have not been sure when the new all-in-one tablet could be released this year. Numerous experts had pegged March to be the month of the product’s official release. However, all signs now point at Fall 2017. Microsoft will likely hold off until the 2017 Christmas quarter before launching the new tablet.
The latest Surface Pro 4 grabs many consumers from their tablet and notebook niches. In spite of this it is clear that there is still a considerable way to go before anyone discards their laptop in favor of the product. For now Microsoft seems to want this Surface series to provide basic to intermediate PC skills when they are needed. While this has proved appealing enough, the Surface Pro 4 could soon losing relevance if an upgrade does not come along quickly. It has been nearly two year’s since the Surface Pro 4’s release.
Coming to the fore this year is the Surface Pro 5. Microsoft is reported to have the new all-in-one tablet set for release this Fall.
In what looks like a great comeback for the American software giant, Microsoft has adopted a unique and appealing approach to its consumer and business products. Surface gadgets nicely depict the company’s vision when it comes to hardware. This product range builds bridges between conventional devices to make machines that are more capable, convenient and relevant to an evolving tech market.
The aim for Microsoft while building the Surface Pro 4 was to offer a tablet that could ideally function as a laptop. This was achieved to a degree, and that alone was enough to send consumers swarming to the Pro 4. It is compact and powerful enough for any reasonable PC task. And despite our best efforts, the Surface Pro 4 fails to come off as a cheaply spliced 2-in-1 product. Instead the gadget always seems to stand at attention while using the foldout keyboard for laptop functions. It is also apparent that Microsoft infused style into the Pro 4’s poised, sleek design.
Microsoft seeks moment
Analysts are sure that October 2017 will see the Surface Pro 5 in the hands of consumers. There were outlets that claimed it would arrive as soon as March but there is enough evidence to anticipate its arrival later on during the year. Chief among these is the next major Windows OS update (called the Creator’s Update). The patch will only be released this Fall. This would make the yearly Windows Event in October the most ideal moment to unleash new devices that can flaunt Microsoft’s newest software adjustments.
Reports have chimed in claiming the upcoming Surface Pro 5 will run Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 635 chip. Other reports insist that Intel’s new Kaby Lake chips will be put into the device. Battery drainage is offered as the greatest reason to choose a Snapdragon 635 processor over the 7th gen Intel Core chips. Although the very reason for Surface Pro series is to cram the best possible PC capacity into a tablet device. This would logically make the Kaby Lakes a better option. Even though both rumors are not at all far fetched, analysts seem to favor the latter chipset for the Pro 5.

Microsoft offers better add-ons.
The Pro 5 is expected to come in two display variants, 2K and 4K resolution. If this is the case, then the upcoming gadget will be among the most powerful and reputable 4K tablets to land on the market.
The Surface Pro 5 is expected to support the Surface Pen. The stylus is often bundled with the company’s tablets. The Surface Pen will allegedly get some upgrades of its own. Sources claim the Pro 5 will be able to clutch onto the Pen magnetically. This feature would be much like the Surface Studio’s. Only this time around, the Surface Pen will be rechargeable by the very same means. Though magnetic as well, the current Surface Pen is only powered by a single AAAA battery. It cannot be charged by being placed on the side of Surface Studio display.
More Surface Pro 5 features
USB Type-C came to the fore in recent years. The Surface Pro 4 was not out of place by providing a handy USB 3.0 port when it came out in October 2015. USB slotting adds entire dimensions of convenience to any tablet. Replacing the 3.0 with a Type-C is bound to make the Surface Pro 5 stand out though. It would also help the product stay relevant for a considerable time moving forward. Support for Thunderbolt 3 would be greatly appreciated, too.
The new year promises to advance Microsoft’s ultimate all-in-one tablet. The American tech giant now holds a greatly impressive range of gadgets which sets out to defy industry trends. Despite the way the Surface range turns away from the conventions set by other tech giants, it continues to rake in consumer appeal. All this is due to Microsoft’s fresh take on what consumer and business tech should ideally offer.
Ball rolls for Microsoft
The Surface Pro 5’s manufacturing contract was reported handed to Pegatron. The very same company builds the new Surface Studio. The Pro 5 promises to be all shades of convenience and innovation just like it predecessors.
Microsoft Corporation’s all-in-one gadgets are thriving in multiple hardware markets. Most of these tech segments see repetitive redesigns numerous times over, but Surface gadgets offer a refreshed take on existing hardware. They embody innovation-driven approaches to what personal and business gadgets should be able to do. Whether buyers are looking for the ideal personal, portable or business PC, they needn’t look any further than the Surface Book, Surface Pro and Surface Studio. These stand at the fore of premium device markets and are capable of tasks beyond the capacity of conventional hardware.
