Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is said to come out sooner than expected and the new hybrid PC tablet will be packed with impressive specs and features.

Expected Specs and Features of Microsoft Surface Pro 5

Although Microsoft has yet to make the official announcement with regard to the development and release of Microsoft Surface Pro 5, fans and critics have already shared their own prediction about its possible specs and features. According to a report by PC Advisor, Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is expected to have a new Surface Pen that has the ability to charge power by itself every time it is attached to the hybrid device.

With regard to the specs under the hood, Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will run on the next generation core processor from Intel, the Kaby Lake. Intel had already announced that its new chipset will arrive later this year, which is in perfect timing for the January release of Microsoft Surface Pro 5. Apart from its powerful processor, the device will also run with 16 GB of RAM and the latest Windows 10 Redstone 2 operating system.

There are speculations suggesting that Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will arrive in two variants, which will differ in display technology. According to the report, the first variation will have full 2K support, while the high-end model will have 4k display resolution.
