Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Rumors, Release Date: Expected Release in 2017?

Microsoft's Surface Pro 5 has been anticipated by the fans for sometime now. The updated flagship tablet was supposed to have been introduced sometime this year. However, eager Microsoft fans are asking the tech-giant to give a launch date.

According to the rumor mills, it is possible that Microsoft might release the gadget by the end of this year, anytime between June and October.

However, Surface Pro 5 launch date doesn't look like it is coming in the next couple of months or anytime soon, for that matter. Most recent reports suggest that Microsoft has changed the release date for 2017. The reason attributed this delay is the readiness of Windows 10 Redstone 2, the new operating system which will power the upcoming tablet. But since the OS is moved for 2017 spring release, it seems only logical that the Surface Pro 5 is not coming anytime before that.

The launch date of Surface Pro 5 has been impacted due to this operating system which is expected to run the new tablet. Redstone 2 release is being merged into the launch of upcoming Windows 10 machines. "Enterprise push-back isn't the reason for the Windows 10 Redstone 2 delay. Instead, it's supposedly the next wave of Windows 10 devices from Microsoft," the report said.

As far as the device's specs are concerned, according to the new patent, Surface Pro 5 will feature rechargeable stylus pen, with an addition of a charging dock

Underneath, Surface Pro 5 will feature the most updated intel chipset, 6th-generation SkyLake processor that will run on either i5 or i7. However, it is important to note that none of this information is confirmed and is only speculated so far. The readers should take all the updates with a pinch of salt. It goes without saying that it is best to treat speculations as just that, until proven otherwise.
