Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Release Delayed; Windows 10 Update to be Rolled out in June

Surface Pro 5

Previous reports suggested that Microsoft Surface Pro 5 would be unveiled in October, but latest news claims that the promised release might be delayed a little.

Ecumenical News reported that Microsoft is set to launch its new Windows 10 update, the Redstone 1 and that it would be released sometime during June. This makes difficult for the company to work on two different projects simultaneously.

For Microsoft’s focusing first on the Windows 10, it is possible that the Surface Pro may be launched next year. There may be an advantage, as the device may run on Redstone 2 during the launch period. This buys more time for the developers of the device to make it as perfect as possible and be able to compete with other brands.

Meanwhile, News Everyday claims that the new Surface laptops will be powered by a Kaby Lake Processing Chip from Intel. This would make the device more powerful than before. The publication also notes that the upgrade will cost more time to pull off. There’s also a possibility that the device may be unleashed after Redstone 2 has been launched.

If reports are to be believed, the Redmond-based company, Microsoft would be including 4K display along with USB Type-C port and will have an enhanced battery power which would improve the lifespan of Microsoft Surface Pro 5.

This could only mean that the American tech giant might be postponing the release of Microsoft Surface Pro 5 until the first half of 2017. However, this would not mean that Microsoft will push the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. It would follow the schedule and roll out this June.
