Over the past few months, it has been reported consistently that Microsoft is soon going to launch the Surface Pro 5. The company hasn’t made a concrete announcement about this new device as yet but it has confirmed that it’s conducting an event in Shanghai on May 23rd to “show the world what’s next.” It’s quite likely that the Surface Pro 5 launch could take place at this event.
Microsoft conducted another event in New York City a few days back where it launched a new version of Windows 10 called Windows 10 S. It also launched its first Windows 10 S-powered notebook called the Surface Laptop.
Many are interested in finding out when the company is planning on launching the Surface Pro 5, though. It’s likely that the launch might take place at the May 23rd event because the tweet that Microsoft sent out to confirm the date contains the hashtag “#Surface.”
The tweet was sent out by Microsoft’s Panos Panay who is the vice president of devices and also the brain behind the Surface lineup at the company. He’s going to be attending the event in Shanghai and that in itself is a big indication that a big product launch could take place there.
Reports suggest that there won’t be any major differences between the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Pro 5. Intel’s latest Kaby Lake processors are said to be onboard aside from other minor improvements.
