New Microsoft Surface Pro Coming Our Way on Tuesday

New Microsoft Surface Pro Coming Our Way on Tuesday

Earlier this month, Microsoft's devices chief Panos Panay had hinted that the company wasn't planning to launch a Surface Pro 5 until it had achieved enough "meaningful change" to warrant launching an all new product. As a new batch of press renders have leaked online purportedly showing the upcoming Surface Pro 5.

For over a year, the tech world has eagerly awaited for the announcement of the next-generation Surface Pro, dubbed as the Surface Pro 5, from Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). In fact, it is all but impossible to distinguish the Surface Pro from the Surface Pro 4; we'll just have to wait until Monday to find out what's happening beneath the hood in terms of new hardware. Unfortunately, no one knows anything about the exact specs of the upcoming convertible tablet. That makes sense if you're from the Apple School of thought (think MacBook Pro) and it's better than calling it the Pro 4S or Pro 4.5 or something.




Venture Beat further adds that the Microsoft Surface Pro will come in a range of optional accessories including the stylus (pen) and keyboard which will be available in a choice of four colours. Like the recently announced Surface Laptop, the new Surface Pro won't have any USB-C ports.
