Latest reports suggest that Microsoft could be releasing the Surface Pro 5 together with Surface Book 2 and Surface Phone and that too in February 2017. Some reports also mention the MWC 2017 as the event where these highly-anticipated Microsoft devices will be unveiled. Some of these devices could have been released in December but Microsoft reportedly delayed their release as it wants the Intel Kaby Lake processors.

If Microsoft Surface Pro 5 comes with the Kaby Lake chipset, it would surely be an upgrade from the existing Skylake chipset. The new chips are said to boost device performance like never before and even improve battery life manifold. The device could come equipped with a Surface Pen. A new dock in the main device charges the Pen. USB Type-C ports are also expected.

Tech enthusiasts believe Microsoft will go for a major display upgrade too and surprise fans with a 4K/UHD display feature with a screen resolution of 3860 x 2560 pixels. The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will come with a hefty price tag, writes Tech Radar. The basic model of Surface Pro 4 sold for US$899 (AU$1,210). This price went up to US$2,000 (AU$2,700), depending on the configuration.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is likely to sport a bigger and better battery that will provide at least seven hours of battery life. Other features expected in the device are Quad HD AMOLED screen, USB 3.0 port, 3.5mm audio jack and microSD slot.

The Surface Phone could be Microsoft’s last chance to take a shot at Apple’s iPhone. This product may allow full versions of Windows software to run on an ARM processor. Microsoft’s flagship will be sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it would be the company’s first self-designed smartphone running on Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 3 out-of-the-box update.
