Surface Pro 5 tipped to arrive in early 2017

Surface Pro 4

The new Surface tablet may have an Ultra HD display

Microsoft is going to refresh its Surface Pro line in the first quarter of 2017, according to a report at DigiTimes. Citing a publication from China at Economic Daily, the report claims that Microsoft will launch the Surface Pro 5 tablet along with the Creators Update in Q1 2017.

Microsoft’s next Surface Pro model may have an ultra HD display and a new stylus with magnetic charging. Some other improvement in terms of hardware could also be expected in the Surface Pro line, including a new generation of processors. Pagatron, the company that manufactures the Surface Studio, will also be responsible for the making of the Surface Pro, according to DigiTimes.

Microsoft had a very successful year for its Surface division in 2016, with increasing sales of all products and the introduction of the all-in-one PC called ‘Studio’. However, the hardware refresh of the Surface Pro 4 didn’t happen in 2016, but the chances for an early 2017 launch are pretty high. Redmond is also believed to be working on a smartphone Surface for late 2017 and Redstone 3 software update.
