It has been more than a year now since Microsoft released the Surface Pro 4, but as of now, the Redmond giant remains mum on the next-generation 2-in-1 tablet. However, the LinkedIn profile of Toby Fitch, a former product designer on several Microsoft hardware projects, indicates the Surface Pro 5 is indeed in the works.

WalkingCat, a leaker who uses the Twitter handle @h0x0d, found this proof. Although any evidence of an upcoming Surface Pro 5 was removed, the leaker was quick to capture a screenshot of the profile description that refers to the Surface Pro 5 as a “device of the future.”

From June 2016 through January 2017, Fitch worked within Microsoft’s Analog Speech Design Team with a focus on “R&D and creating new speech models with multidisciplinary design approach for devices of the future including but not limited to HoloLens, Surface Pro 5, Xbox.”

Previous rumors suggest the Surface Pro 5 could see the light of day in the spring along with the Surface Book 2. That means these new products could possibly ship with the Windows 10 Creators Update. One strong indication that the rumored release window will hold true is the markdown in price for the existing Surface Pro model.

We know from previous rumors too that the Surface Pro 5 will rock a Kaby Lake CPU and include a 4K screen resolution and RAM upgrade, among others. Microsoft will also supposedly squeeze a USB Type-C port and a Thunderbolt 3 port into the Surface Pro 5.

Fitch’s profile also provides a glimpse into the new design language for Windows 10 devices dubbed Project Neon. Microsoft plans to unveil the project later this year.
