#Microsoft #surfacePro5 – Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Expected to Come Out in March 2017 with Better Features : The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 laptop could come during the first quarter of the year. Reports indicate that it would just be a few more months before potential customers and die-hard followers welcome the much-awaited device. This comes just in time as Microsoft’s Surface Pro 2-in-1 tablet has long been overdue for a really great change.
Also, the last generation Surface Pro 4 was released far back in October 2015 and much has changed since then.

Many of the media leaks coming out stems from loose lipped manufacturers and nothing has been confirmed by Microsoft, but the information seems credible and accurate enough as also confirmed by anonymous insiders.
Specs and new features
Expected to be released early this year, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is anticipated to have an improved and “magnetically charging” stylus, as well as a 4K Ultra HD display, and Thunderbolt 3. All these will be offered to the public with the help of a new supplier that Microsoft tapped for the Surface Pro 5 that is being called a Qanta Computer. In fact, the stylus and Pro 5 are now being advertised in television stations depicting a forensic illustrator showing off the Pro 5 and its stylus as being as sensitive as using pencil and paper when drawing faces. Many of the leaked reports highlights manufacturers involved with producing the Pro 5. Microsoft has chosen Pegatron Technology to build the device; the same company in charge of producing the Surface Studio line of PC’s.
The anticipated release for the device is this coming March 2017, and this is barely three months from now. It is still, however, not clear if the new Microsoft laptop will come with a USB Type C connector or will maintain its normal ports just like it did with its other new devices. As for its processor, the Surface Pro 5 could run on Intel Core i7 which was also offered to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. Microsoft could also offer a newer and faster processor to the upcoming release.
Rechargeable stylus battery
The stylus of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be rechargeable just like the iPad Pro which has a rechargeable Apple pen. This is a great development from the previous stylus powered by non-rechargeable batteries. The magnetic stylus would recharge automatically when docked to the side of the Surface, instead of using a removable AAAA battery. It is also rumored to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 635 processor and not the Intel Kaby Lake chip as earlier reported. This will ensure that the device will have a better battery life for longer use.
When it comes to price, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 could also initially sell just like the Surface Pro 4 that has a tag of $899 for the basic variant. The Pro 5 could go up for as high as $2,000 depending on the memory and processor of the device.
