There was a time when Microsoft would come out with a new product concept that would took the industry by surprise. The concept in question was the Surface line of hybrid devices and believe it or not, they weren’t always popular. In fact, upon their original release, the laptops turned tablet were frowned upon and weren’t met with much acclaim.
Times change, however, and today the Microsoft Surface Pro line of hybrid devices is ruling the market with a strong grip on both the tablet and laptop industry. This is a very advantageous position for Microsoft, which is allegedly preparing for the development of the company’s next Surface Pro device with rumors for the Surface Pro 5 out in the wild.
While nothing official yet, speculation points to a pretty sturdy configuration for the Surface Pro 5. Its specs include ultra HD technology for the display, which boasts a max resolution of 3840×2160. For those not accustomed to the series, the Surface Pro are laptops which you can strip down to the bare display. That means that at any moment you can choose to detach the display and use it as a tablet, a feature that attracts business entities and the general population alike — and also why the screen quality is such a big deal for this device in particular.
With a massive upgrade in both screen resolution and pixel density, it is safe to assume that Surface Pro 5 will definitely appeal to Surface Pro 4 owners.
In case you are one of them and are wondering when this new Surface Pro iteration is coming out, you might be pleased to know that a Q1 2017 release is anticipated. That means that the latest we can see the Pro 5 will be the month of March.
