Several reports have emerged all over the Internet suggesting that the highly anticipated iPad Pro 2 tablet could be launched in November. According to the reports, the device is going to be Apple's main bet against the new Microsoft Surface Pro 5 from Microsoft. Although the two have yet to have scheduled release dates, rumors about its specs and features have already surfaced online.

According to a report by PC Advisor, the new iPad Pro 2 will run on Apple's new A10x processor paired with 4 GB of RAM. Although the new iteration brings a lot of improvements from its predecessor, the tablet might not have the same impressive specs of the much awaited Microsoft Surface Pro 5. The new Microsoft hybrid tablet will run on Intel's latest Kaby Lake processor paired with 8 GB of RAM. Rumor has it that the high-end version of the new Microsoft Surface Pro 5 might carry 16 GB of RAM.

The new device from the Redmond-based company certainly has all the advantage as it is more of a laptop than it is a tablet. However, there are speculations suggesting that the new A10 chipset from the Cupertino based company is way faster than the standard PC set up. If rumors prove to be true, the new iPad Pro 2 will definitely give the upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 5 a run of its money.

There are reports saying that the new iPad Pro 2 from Apple might come out in three variants, which all will differ in sizes - 9.7-inch entry level model, 10.5-inch variant, and the top-tier variation with a 12.9-inch display. On the other hand, the new Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is expected to arrive in two models and both will differ in display technology.

According to reports, the standard set up of Microsoft Surface Pro 5 has 2K viewing capability, while the high-end version supports 4K. Meanwhile, according to Macworld, both the iPad Pro 2 and Microsoft Surface Pro 5 might arrive early next year.
