One of the most anticipated devices to arrive this year is the Microsoft Surface Pro 5. Reports say that the laptop will be released before 2016 ends but, until now, there has been no official announcement that was made for the device. Rumors and speculations continue for the Microsoft Surface Pro 5, some say that it will have the seventh generation Intel's Kaby Lake Processor.

But, according to a report from Mobile & Apps, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 might be released next year if Microsoft will use the Kaby Lake as its processor and rely on the processor's release date.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is expected to have three screen sizes that consumers can choose from. It will have a 21-inch, 24-inch and 27-inch screen that comes with a 4K high resolution display, with these features gamers might also consider the Surface Pro 5 for gaming.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 might also come with the Microsoft's fourth major update to Windows 10 commonly known as the Redstone 2. The Redstone 2 update is going to be delayed until 2017, as stated by iDigitalTimes. This might also be one of the reasons why there will be no Microsoft Surface Pro 5 to be launched this year.
