Wait for Surface Pro 5 grows with rumors

With the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book still feeling somewhat fresh in our minds in the wonderment they provided, — and all the little and big bugs that have bit at us along the way — Microsoft may make us wait a little bit before it introduces its next iteration of the Surface Pro 2-in-1 tablet. And with a bump from “4” to “5” come some massive spec bumps as well.

India’s Mobipicker is relaying word from its Chinese sources that the Surface Pro 5 will come packing with Intel’s 14nm Kaby Lake processors and up to 16GB of RAM. Windows 10 Redstone 2 will be on-board.

A point of more excitement is the option to upgrade to a 4K display. On a 12.3-inch canvas, that takes the pixels per inch count up from Surface Pro 4’s 267 to 358. That screen will get rendering support from either a new NVIDIA Pascal GPU or a Polaris one from AMD. If the rumor proves true, the upcoming model would be the first with a third-party discrete GPU.

All of this will not come in the fall, but supposedly next spring.

Older rumors have pointed to base model prices ranging from $899 to $1,599 and many other upgrades to the Surface Pen, Type Cover, and cameras.
