microsoft surface pro 5

Microsoft is planning to launch Surface Pro 5 next year and it will prove to be one of the biggest launches of next year. Delay in the launch is due to delay of second major update of Windows 10. Microsoft also announced a subscription program which will let users upgrade to a new model when released. Surface Pro 5 is assumed to come in two variants where one will have 4K screen display and the other one will have 2K resolution.

Device will no longer feature USB 3.0 port. It will instead feature a USB-C port which will be used for charging. It may also have a fingerprint sensor on its screen. Surface Pro 5 will have Surface Pen which will automatically charge itself when attached to the tablet because it has rechargable batteries unlike previous Surface Pro which contains AAAA alkaline battery and required manual charging.

This device will be the first one to run on Microsoft’s latest operating system Windows 10 Redstone 3. It is also said that the device might have Qualcomm Snapdragon processor instead of Intel Kaby lake as it has showcased that Windows 10 will be running fully on an ARM 64-bit processor. Qualcomm Snapdragon is also offering two important features that is battery life and wireless connectivity which will help Surface Pro 5 in competing with other similar devices present in the market.

Microsoft is saying that this device will have better battery life, excellent features and good design. The device would be priced roughly $899. Surface Pro 5 will be competing in the market with Apple iPad Air and MacBook Air.

Let us hope this device after it launch will prove to be a sucess in the market and compete well with other similar devices.
