Surface Pro 5 on launch ramp: arrives in the first quarter of 2017

The Surface Pro 5 is expected to hit the shelves close to Easter 2017. In addition to the release date, the technical specifications are also known

Microsoft, on October 26, renewed and added new members to the Surface family that, data in hand, has been particularly liked by the general public. The appointment was missing only the Surface Pro 5 that, according to increasingly insistent rumors, is expected early next year.

The rumors come from Asia, that is, from the places of production of most hi-tech products of Western giants, including Microsoft. Digitimes claims that Redmond's new 2-in-1 tablet will come with an Ultra HD display and a stylus with magnetic charging capabilities. It is being made by Pegatron Technology, possibly in collaboration with Quanta Computer, according to China's Economic Daily News. The characteristics of the new Microsoft gem are still few and fragmented, but we can already start to draw up a draft identikit.

Technical characteristics Surface Pro 5

Microsoft Surface Pro 5 should, as mentioned, show up at the appointment with an Ultra HD display and a magnetic stylus that would presumably charge on the deck. Ultra HD, UHD or 4K generally refer to a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels and the 2,736 x 1,824 dot resolution of the Surface Pro 4, a 2-in-1 convertible tablet, was already something remarkable. The family would be enriched by another product with all the credentials to continue to nibble user to Apple. Microsoft speaks of "strong sales" for the recent Surface Studio, without going into detail and launches a dig at Cupertino stating that, in fact, it would be the last MacBook Pro to convince more users than expected to switch to Surface.
