There is another potential barrier, the Windows 10 functionalities, which is coming with Windows 10 Creators Update. The new Surface hardware was only limited to the Surface Book i7 and the Surface Studio.
We bet nearly each and every single individual is waiting for the official announcement of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 release. This could be one of the key reasons why the Microsoft Surface Phone 2017 and Microsoft Surface Pro 5 have not been released yet. Users are also seeing a convergence of UI experience across mobile and desktop and that is extremely important for devices such as Microsoft Surface Phone 2017 and Microsoft Surface Pro 5, explains 1redDrop. However, for the year 2017, another rumor suggesting the possible features and specs of the high-end laptop with release date reportedly pushed back to 2018. Although people were expecting to see Microsoft Surface Pro 5 unveiled at their event in October 2016, this did not happen.
Surface Phone will go against other top flagships of 2017 as Apple iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 and even possible Google Pixel successors. One of the things that led many to believe that the release date is going to be this spring is the fact that the Windows 10 update is going to be then. Microsoft is reportedly trying to fix on the timing of the launch and shipping schedules for both the Microsoft Surface Phone 2017 and Microsoft Surface Pro 5.
The Surface Pro 5 is estimated to roll out with a 12.5 inch screen that has 4K video capacity. The present surface pen is attached magnetically, but it is not rechargeable as it takes the Alkaline AAAA battery. Some say that this will be the sixth generation Skylake chip, while others say that it will opt for the following generation which is codenamed as Kaby Lake. This will provide the tablet higher processing speeds and longer battery life. However, in advance to the Microsoft Surface 5's official release, there are few important revamps to be noted. But the most likely for the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is to use the Intel 7th Generation Kaby Lake i7 core processor. Past year it was announced that Microsoft Surface Pro 5 starting price will be $899, the Intel Core i7 processor will cost $999, and the i7 extreme version will cost $1599.
As PC Advisor adds, the Surface Pro 5 is expected to arrive with an improved Surface Pen, which has been a staple in all Surface Pro units.
