Unconfirmed Surface Pro 5 renders show a largely unchanged design
Microsoft is expected to unveil the next generation Surface Pro in just a few days on May 23rd during an event in Shanghai, China. Rumors are also claiming that the next Surface Pro may be dropping the number from its name for a more straightforward "Surface Pro" advertising approach. The 18-month old Surface Pro 4 is overdue for a proper successor and now may be the time for an official announcement since ULV U-class Kaby Lake processors are in ample supply.
While it is unclear what updates the next Surface Pro will bring, the latest leaks suggest that not much could change aside from some internal updates. Perhaps most frightening, port selection appears to be identical to the Surface Pro 4 and this could mean no USB Type-C or Thunderbolt 3 integration. The omissions of these connectivity options alone could repulse a large number of users who may have been expecting more from Microsoft's premier tablet series.
The unverified source also shows at least three other color options beyond the standard Silver that we've grown accustomed to. We should find out early next week if any of the new information is true regarding the next generation Surface Pro.
