Microsoft: The Surface Pro 5 might be released in the first quarter of 2017
If you want to believe Taiwanese website Digitimes, Microsoft is planning for an early 2017 release of the Surface Pro 5. Apparently the devices are being built by Pegatron although Microsoft is also considering Quanta Computer as another manufacturer for the successor to the Surface Pro 4. The new version of Microsoft's popular 2-in-1 device is said to feature a magnetic charging stylus and an (optional) UHD display.
We also expect a variety of Kaby Lake processors inside the Surface Pro 5, Intel is expected to release new quad-core versions at CES 2017. Also, a USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3 support is very likely to be included as well. We actually think, that an early release of the Surface Pro 5 in the first quarter is not unlikely because Microsoft is planning for a quarter 1 release of the next Windows 10 version as well. The Creators Update might come pre-installed on the Surface Pro 5 if it ships after March of 2017.
