Microsoft is conjectured to be developing an upgraded version of its Surface Pro 4 tablet – the Surface Pro 5. Now the rumor mill is abuzz with speculations that the new tablet from the Redmond-based company could be unveiled in March.
The Surface Pro 5 has been rumored to release in Q1 2017 for a while and as the alleged launch window of the tablet nears, rumors pertaining to the device are gaining momentum.
The company revealed a new version of the two-in-one Surface book hybrid in October 2016 but there was no sign of the Surface Pro 5. Several leaks and rumors have come out of the supply chains and here is a lowdown of what to expect from the new Surface Pro 5.
The Surface Pro 5 will allegedly be powered by Intel’s 7th Generation Kaby Lake processor and will be coming out in three versions – the Core M (dual core), Core i5 (dual-core with two threads), and Core i7 (quad-core with eight threads). This will enable the tablet to have higher processing speeds and better battery life.
Cinematic experience will receive a boost, as Microsoft plans to install a 12.5-inch 4K screen, which offers 3D support at 60fps. Microsoft could ditch the Super AMOLED screens in favour of an IPS touch one.
