The Surface Pro 4 was a successful device, but Microsoft will need to move on and think about the future. Because technology doesn’t stand in place and processors will keep becoming faster and faster, internal memories will have a more generous capacity and so on. Soon, Microsoft will unveil the Surface Pro 5 and reports say that this will happen next month, but the hybrid-laptop will be officially launched in October. Other reports suggest that the device will be released in the first quarter of 2017.

And the Surface Pen will be charged using the magnetic dock that the Surface Pro 5 will come with.
