It's been a year since the tech giant launched its highly successful Surface Pro 4, and as such, the clamor for a successor -- the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 -- has only gone stronger over the past months. Indeed, when the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 went unannounced during the special Microsoft event during the last quarter, leaving many tech fans and enthusiasts disappointed.

Nevertheless, all rumors and reports regarding the Microsoft device all point to a possible 2017 launch, which means the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is still happening. But what can people expect from this new installment? Here's the roundup of everything you need to know about the Microsoft Surface Pro 5: specifications and features, upgrades, release dates, price details and more.

Specifications and features

The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 might sport 13.3 inches with a sharp 261 dpi resolution, and is also expected to support 4K video capabilities as its contemporaries have already accomplished. It's also expected to debut the USB Type C charging port as well as the new Kaby Lake processors, according to PC Advisor.


Among the things people wish to see in the new Microsoft Surface Pro 5, however, is longer battery life. Its predecessor, the Surface Pro 4, despite its merits, suffers from low battery life. As such, many are expecting the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 to sport a longer battery life, according to Tech Radar. Another upgrade expected from the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is the new Stylus Pen, which is expected to have a rechargeable alkaline battery that can charge via a magnetic dock attached to either side of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5.

Release date

As of now, Microsoft has not officially announced nor confirmed the release of a Microsoft Surface Pro 5. However, reputable reports suggested a 2017 launch date, especially if the new Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is indeed going to have the new Intel Kaby Lake processors. Stay tuned for more details regarding the Microsoft Surface Pro 5.
