Microsoft is expected to launch its next-generation Surface Pro 5 during the first quarter of 2017. The device will feature “an Ultra HD display and magnetic charging stylus,” according to a new report, and could be manufactured by Pegatron.
Microsoft’s most recent Surface Pro 4 made its debut in October 2015, so it’s well over a year old now. Fans expected to see a new model earlier this year alongside the second-generation Surface Book, but it didn’t arrive.
It seems it’s not the end for the Surface Pro lineup, however. According to a new report from DigiTimes, which cites Chinese-language newspaper Economic Daily News, a Surface Pro 5 will arrive in Q1 2017.
“Microsoft is planning to launch its new Surface Pro 5 2-in-1 in the first quarter of 2017 which will feature an Ultra HD display and magnetic charging stylus,” reads the report. Pegatron will manufacture the device, but Microsoft could also add Quanta Computer to its team.
Sadly, the report doesn’t tell us what we can expect from the Surface Pro 5, but it’s safe to assume it will offer faster processors, better graphics, and improved battery life.
