There is no doubt that Microsoft is one of the most popular tech brands worldwide that is why several people are excited about the company's latest products every year. But, 2016 might have been a slow year for Microsoft. Several fans are disappointed because Microsoft has not released next-gen tablets, smartphones or laptops including the much anticipated Microsoft Surface Pro 5.

Several reports claim that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be launched in February 2017 along with the Microsoft Surface Phone. If the reports are true, the release date will then coincide with the Mobile World Congress 2017, which is set to be held in the same month.

According to a report from PCadvisor, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be powered by the seventh generation Intel Kaby Lake and would be more powerful compared to its direct competitions. The Microsoft  Pro 5's Surface Pen might also get an update. It was said that the next generation Surface Pen will have rechargeable batteries and that it can charge wirelessly when attached to the Microsoft Surface Pro 5.

There is a huge possibility that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will sport a 4K screen, or have at least one variant with 4K display. USB C ports are also a big possibility. The longer battery life of the new Surface Pro 5 will be major attraction for the customers.

Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will surely be packing with extremely powerful specs and features. Some reports claim that it will boast a Quad HD AMOLED screen, and more powerful processors and RAM to achieve better multitasking, and other peripheral support.

It is expected that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will start at a price of $899 (£749, AU$1,349) and escalate depending on the configuration and accessories the buyers will choose. As of now, Microsoft hasn't confirmed any of these features but always stay tuned to GameNGuide to know the latest news and updates for Microsoft Surface Pro 5.
