Surface Pro 5 Press renders Leaked Ahead of Official Announcement

Share

Microsoft is hosting a hardware-focused launch event in Shanghai on May 23, i.e next week and we've received out very first leaked image set for the upcoming Surface Pro. That's not the case with these images that appear to reveal the next Surface Pro. The Surface Pro keyboard and Surface Pen are expected to come in four different colors, namely Charcoal, Burgundy, Platinum and Teal.

Panos Panay may have said that the Surface Pro 5 does not exist, but that certainly does not mean there's not a Surface Pro 4 successor. Given the fact that it's only a refreshed version of its predecessor, it's a little unusual that Microsoft went for the simple Surface Pro moniker instead. Apple recently released a new version of its 9.7-inch tablet simply called iPad.

Microsoft is holding an event in China on May 23 where they might release the Surface Pro 4 a.k.a the Surface Pro 4 refresh. The color of the accessories will be similar to the color options the recently launched Surface Laptop arrived in. Blass also points out that the new Microsoft Surface Pro isn't a huge upgrade, and majorly will come with internal specification updates. Just like the new Surface Laptop, there's still no USB-C connector. However, there is every possibility that the Redmond giant could roll out an update of the current Surface Pro, without actually naming it as the Surface Pro 5. Also, Microsoft could make it slimmer and lighter along with a few design tweaks.

Further, the widely-rumoured Surface Book 2 will not be launched during the event, according to sources familiar with company's plans.
