  • It’s been a while since we heard about Microsoft launching a new hardware product and aside from the rumors of a new Xbox coming at E3, today we learn there’s also a new flagship tablet coming. It’s the Microsoft Surface Pro 5, expected to pop up in Spring 2017.


    The device is said to pack an Intel Kaby Lake processor, as well as 16 GB of RAM. Initially, the slate was meant to debut this year, but it was delayed, possibly to better fit it with the best Intel CPUs around. Sources from China have confirmed the arrival in Spring, with a 7th gen Kaby Lake CPU, that has the advantage of drawing less power than the models before.

    16 GB of RAM are also said to be on board, plus an optional version of the Surface Pro 5 will come with a 4K display. Regular versions will be available with 2K displays. The new Nvidia Pascal or AMD Polaris GPU will take care of gaming and video editing, while on the software front we’ll be getting Windows 10 Redstone 2.

    USB Type C should be in the mix, a new Surface Pen, too, improved cameras and of course new accessories.
