The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is one of the most highly anticipated devices to be released next year. it is set to be a very promising piece of tech, packing the highest end specs in a premium build quality.

The delay of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 launch definitely disappointed many fans this year, but it has been reported that the long wait would be totally worth it. There have been rumors stating that the device will be packing either Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 or the Intel Kaby Lake processors.

The two options for the processor of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 are both great, but fans are favoring the Intel offering over the Qualcomm one, due to its higher potential speeds. The device is also set to come with at least 32GB of RAM, coupled with at least 1TB of storage, making Surface Pro 5 a performance beast.

The new Surface Pen would also come with the upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 5. The new peripheral is said to be rechargeable through a new innovative technology, gaining magnetic charging capabilities. There would also be USB Type-C ports on the device.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 would then be directly competing with the likes of the iPad Pro and the MacBook, being a full-pledged tablet-laptop hybrid device. However, with the Intel Kaby Lake processors onboard, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 would surely be a lot more powerful than the latest offerings from Apple.

The trademark Continuum feature might also make an appearance here, giving rise to the ultimate productivity device for the power users. This would then enable the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 to connect to a monitor and other peripherals to run full versions of different apps.

While there has been no exact release date for the release of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5, it is believed to be launched in Spring 2017. This is also the same release window that the Intel Kaby Lake chipsets would be made available on the market.

As for the price of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5, it has been predicted to cost $899 for the base model. Prices could also go as high as $1599 for the maxed out version.
