Black Friday 2016 is just around the corner and there could be great discounts on different tech and gadgets. Microsoft products, such as Surface Pro 4, are expected to be sold at low prices, but will you go for the hybrid tablet or should you wait out until the company announces a new iteration, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5?

Microsoft Surface Pro 5 has been a subject of rumors for quite some time now and tech aficionados continue to wait for an official release date of the product. The Redmond-based tech giant continues to be silent about the device but rumor has it that the next hybrid tablet should be out sometime in 2017. While some might be excited to get their hands on a Surface Pro device on Black Friday 2016, others might consider waiting for the release of the latest iteration. Here are three reasons why it would be a better idea for you to consider the latter.

Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Expected to Have Longer-Lasting Battery

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is known for its poor battery life. The device falls short in that field despite the release of patches and only a new iteration could address that flaw. Currently, Microsoft Surface Pro 4 can last for a good three to four hours, which would make tablets appear as a better option. There are rumors, though, that Microsoft Surface Pro 5 has a stronger battery that could last for more than hours. Even if it's just a rumor, Microsoft is expected to fix the problem with the lineup's battery.

Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Will Have More Impressive Specs & Features

Since Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is a successor, it is expected to pack on improvements from the previous model. Also, given that there are already a lot of devices that can serve as an alternative for Surface Pro 4, it's exciting to see what Microsoft has in store for its customers when it comes to Microsoft Surface Pro 5. The company is expected to up its game to remain strong in the competition and the only way to do that is to make sure that the next iteration has the best specs and cool features.

Discounts for Surface Pro 4 Will Still Exist in 2017

It remains to be seen if Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be released in 2017, but regardless, customers can always expect to find great discounts on Surface Pro 4 - not only on Black Friday 2016 or during the holidays, iDigitalTimes wrote. With the shopping season fast approaching, will you consider getting the current Surface Pro device or will you be patient enough to invest time and money on Microsoft Surface Pro 5?
