The Surface Pro 5 launch date is rumored to have been delayed to sometime in 2017. Supposedly, they delay is due to several factors and some of those are the inclusion of a 4k resolution screen and the latest processor from Intel.

The upcoming Surface Pro 5 will presumably run on the next gen processor from Intel, named Kaby Lake which is confirmed for release sometime later this year. This info comes from the Intel vice president, Navin Shenroy who stated at the Computex 2016 event that the 7th generation of Intel processors (Kaby Lake) will come out in 2016. Since the processors haven’t been launched yet, it’s very unlikely that the upcoming Surface Pro 5 will come out anytime soon.

Other specs and additions that are expected to be featured by the upcoming Surface Pro 5 is a rechargeable Surface Pen and an USB Type C port. As we all know this type of port is used for faster data transfer and charging.

Supposedly the device will also come with Windows 10 Redstone 2 which is rumored to have an Office Hub that will integrate features from Windows 10 and Office 365 thus enabling users to access documents and emails easily.

The Surface Pro 5 is also believed to come with 16 GB of RAM and to have two cameras – a rear-side 16 MP one and a front side 8 MP one.

As for the 4K resolution feature, some tech bloggers have stated that the presumed specs for the device will not be able to render 4k content, but others believe that it will simply be a paid-for feature that you can add to the device if you want it.

Lastly, the basic device is said to be priced at $899, whereas the high-end variant is believed to be valued at $1800.
