Microsoft Surface Pro 5 coming in March 2017

Hmmm....wonder what we will see?

While Microsoft will not reveal specifications until launch, parts manufacturers and supply chain leaks indicate that the following updates will be included:

- Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake low energy processors with three models – Core m (dual-core), Core i5 (dual-core, two threads) and Core i7 (quad-core, eight threads). Kaby Lake has faster clock speeds, higher turbo frequencies, better battery life and importantly native support for 3D, 4K@60fps, H.264, HEVC, 10-bit and 8-bit video, and HDCP 2.2 support.

- 12.3” (same size), 3:2 ratio, 4K resolution screen (4K in 16:9 format is 3840 x 2160 pixels). It is likely to be 4320 x 2160 approx. to maintain full-screen width when playing 16:9 movies. It is unlikely to move from IPS Touch to Super AMOLED just yet.

- USB-C, 3.1 with Thunderbolt. It is likely the Core m model will have one for charging/data and a USB 3.0 full-size port for data. All will retain the full-size USB3.0. mini-Display Port, and Surface Ribbon connector for a docking station and keyboard functionality.

- LTE as a definite option.

- DDR4 ram starting with 16GB and up to 32GB, m.2 - 512GB to 1TB SSD, plus SD card support.

- Magnetic charge Surface pen (stylus) that will only work on Surface Pro 5 (or later).

- Fingerprint reader standard on the optional keyboard/cover but rumours of wider key spacing and a larger glass trackpad – improving on an already excellent keyboard.

- Base Core m starting at US$899.

- First to ship with the Windows 10 Redmond 3 update.
