Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Features& Specs
Rumor mills are starting to grind for the upcoming Surface Pro 5 features.

Furthermore, Surface Pro 5 is said to be powered by the sixth-generation Intel Kaby Lake processor; however, there are others who claim that the tablet will run on Intel Sky Lake chipsets. Surface Pro 5 is believed to come out with two screen variants, 2k and 4k screen display, but the latter will be more expensive compared to the former.
In addition, at the heart of the Surface Pro 5 is the 16GB of RAM, but there is no information about the internal storage capacity just yet. The next-generation tablet is also perceived to eliminate the traditional ports, such as USB 3.0, that is present in the Surface Pro 4 to give way to USB-C ports.
