There is a lot of speculation about the upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 5 but nothing has been confirmed about it yet and many users are wondering if the device is really coming.
According to Tech Radar, the release date for the Surface Pro 5 is presumed to be sometime in the spring of 2017, partly because a highly anticipated Windows 10 update will roll out then and it would make sense to have the device already running the updated OS.
This isn’t the only major Windows event that will precede the launch of the device. Supposedly, the giant will also launch many other devices and those include the Surface Book 2, a Surface smartphone and an all-in-one Surface PC, however the release dates for all of these other devices are also unknown and some may be launched after the Surface Pro 5.
At the same time, the Surface Pro 5 is rumored to come with the latest Kaby Lake processors from Intel and those are confirmed to be set for launch at the end of this year. This means that we might not see the device this year, because Microsoft would have to wait until Intel’s processors are on the market.
Other rumored specs for the upcoming device include a rechargeable stylus pen that may prove to be a great asset for a user. This particular spec rumor is based on an application filing made by Microsoft with the US patent and Trademark Office, according to Patently Mobile.
In terms of pricing, the device is presumed to cost about $899, but it’s possible for it to have a higher price if its specs are more powerful. For example, if the device will be powered by an Intel Core i7 processor it may be priced at $999 and if the Microsoft implements an i7 extreme processor, then that version will be process at $1,599.
