Microsoft's Next Generation Surface Pro Is Here

Microsoft Set to Unveil New Surface Pro With No USB-C or Thunderbolt

The new colors of Surface Pro Signature Type Cover. On the back is a new hinge that allows 165-degree of movement for a near flat angle, ideal for writing or drawing. The device looks similar to the Surface Pro 4, and comes with the same 3.5mm headphone jack, Mini DisplayPort and a USB Type-A port, another report said.

Moving on, the new Surface Pro looks almost identical to the previous Surface Pro 4.

The Surface Pen could contain a small rechargeable battery which is topped up whenever the stylus is sitting on the edge of the Surface Pro 5, held in place by a magnetic connector. It is powered by Intel's seventh-generation Kaby Lake processor, with a fan-less design on the Core m3 and Core i5 models. $1299 doubles the Core i5 Pro's RAM to 8GB and storage to 256GB.

It's a little thinner and lighter, at 8.5 millimeters of thickness and weight starting at 1.69 pounds, with a 12.3-inch screen.

What if they launch updated Surface Pro devices but they are made available in the same color schemes as the Surface Laptop? There is also a microSD card slot on both the new Surface Pro and the Surface Pro 4, however, so paying the extra for the 1TB option might not be worthwhile for many.

Mattias Ekholm's initial shot deflected off Viktor Arvidsson in front of the Anaheim net, and Josi knocked home the rebound. The Nashville Predators wouldn't have made it to overtime in Game 4 of the Western Conference final without P.K.

Starting at $799 Dollars, the new Surface Pro allows people to customize their experiences with an array of colorful options for the new Surface Pro Signature Type Cover, the new Surface Pen and the Microsoft Surface Arc Mouse.

It comes in four colours - platinum, burgundy, cobalt blue and graphite gold. It is priced at $129. This time around it's clear that Microsoft wants to set itself apart from its competitors with improvements to the Surface Pen.

I suspect this was a calculated risk: With Apple pushing its non-iPhone release schedules out further and further, Microsoft probably felt that it needed to do the same with Surface. The battery life has been bumped up to 13.5 hours which sounds excellent. The Surface Pro will also support the Surface Dial ($100), just like the Surface Studio desktop.

Memory configurations haven't changed, with 4-, 6- and 16GB models available.

Microsoft devices boss Panos Panay said: 'People's expectations for what their devices should help them accomplish are high - and the Surface team works to exceed those expectations. The new Pro will start at about $800 and will be available June 15 in about two dozen countries, including the U.S., China, Japan, South Korea and much of Europe.
