Surface Book and Pro 4 get new firmware updates - here's what's new

Microsoft Corporation's (NASDAQ: MSFT) next flagship Surface Pro 5 would represent one of the most powerful hybrid devices ever released in the 2-in-1 market. Apparently, Microsoft already skipped 2016 in launching the next-gen tablet.

And because the GPU has been dropped you get the notebook slightly cheaper, with the price tag weighing in at $2,999 (around £2,460, AU$3,940), as opposed to $3,199 (around £2,620, AU$4,200), which is what the discrete GPU-toting top-of-the-range Surface Book runs to. Recent reports suggest that the device will support more of Microsoft's new products. IB Times said that Hololens was originally reported to not be a part of the Surface Pro 5. This relatively new Microsoft product was launched in October and has primarily been designed for the Surface Studio. The all-in-one device may also have a surface dial, stylus and cover keyboard, and will likely feature a 12.3-inch Ultra HD or 4K display that will be matched with a higher configuration of graphic support and RAM. This tool can have custom functionalities depending on the users' needs.

Regarding what's under the hood, the Surface Pro 5 is said to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 635.
