Apple's reign over this segment is surely going to plunder if Microsoft decides to include the above mentioned features into Microsoft Surface Pro 5.

With regard to the release date of the Surface Pro 5, unofficial channels are claiming that Microsoft will announce the device (officially) even before the Surface Phone is announced, which is likely during the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2017) next year in which Microsoft's participation is confirmed.

When it comes to the Surface Pro 5 release, things are a bit hazy but the device is not expected until spring 2017.

Will we see any Surface Pro 5 next year? Microsoft's aim as stated by them is not to come up with something out of the ordinary to make them sit atop their fierce competition but to slowly improve their device in order to make it more sought after as per every release.

Microsoft is set to launch its major Windows 10 Creators Update in spring 2017, which might indicate that the Surface Pro 5's debut will be around that time or shortly after that.

Part with your cash and you get a 12.3-inch Microsoft Surface Pro 4 with an Intel Core M m3-6y30 dual core CPU, Intel HD Graphics515 GPU, 128GB solid state hard drive, 4GB of RAM and a shiny new copy of Windows 10. The current Surface Pen allows users to magnetically attach it to a tablet for safekeeping, but it requires an AAAA battery as it is not rechargeable. This means there is a possibility that Mircrosoft Surface Pro 5 will come packed with a Snapdragon chipset instead of the usual Intel processor. Surface Pro 5 is expected to be priced at $899 depending on the special configurations. The USB 3.0 ports may also be replaced with USB Type-C ports, but we'll have to wait to find out and clarify all these rumors that are floating around Microsoft's latest Surface lineup. An improved battery and LTE connectivity are also anticipated in the product.
