Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is Closer to Release than You Think
Microsoft was initially tipped to launch the Surface Pro 5 during the closing stages of 2016. The device was launched a year ago and it helped Microsoft reach the one billion sales percentages milestone. Sadly, Microsoft has yet to confirm the device's official release date. The Microsoft's Own System Center Configuration Manager was referred to as one of the programs that can use the Surface line's new abilities. This theory stems from the upcoming major update for Windows 10, the "Creators Update", which won't be released until spring as well. But News4c reports that it appears impossible that the tablet will be out this year since it wasn't announced during the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2017.
The second mention of Microsoft Surface Pro 5, which could be considered as the less reliable of the two, is an image tag found on Microsoft's French website. Everyone believes that Microsoft chose to not launch the hybrid device during MWC so that other devices won't be able to steal spotlight from it. The first mention of the much-awaited hybrid comes from a LinkedIn profile of a Microsoft-contracted product designer.
The Wake on LAN support will maybe one of the most valuable for big business clients who need to keep a fleet of devices up to date, yet there are many personal users will think that it is helpful, as well. Hence, it's clear that the highly anticipated Surface Pro 5 will be released sooner. The device is expected to sport some very impressive specs, including Intel's latest generation Kaby Lake processor, a new rechargeable Surface Pen, a sleeker design, and an improved battery pack.
There was a time when Microsoft was the only company investing in 2-in-1s and Apple itself was making fun of its Redmond rival's products, but the iPad Pro proved that Cupertino itself spotted the potential that these devices bring. Some are saying that the upcoming flagship of Microsoft has more powerful specs that the iPad Pro 2.
