The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is going to be one hot commodity when it finally hits the market. The big question that is going around right now is, “When will the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 arrive?” That really depends though, as there is no clear cut answer to the situation at the moment. Many people kept their fingers crossed that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 would debut at MWC 2017, but this failed to materialize. Hence, it is now time to turn the attention of fans and industry observers alike elsewhere. The latest rumor to hit the grapevine concerning the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 release date is this: it ought to debut alongside the Xbox Project Scorpio and HoloLens simultaneously. Now won’t that be a triple hit combo for Microsoft fans?
What are the advantages for Microsoft to hold back the release of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 until it makes an appearance and shares the limelight with the Xbox Project Scorpio and HoloLens? Is there anything to be gained on it, as opposed to fulfilling industry expectations for a MWC 2017 debut? Well, we do not know whether the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is good to go or not in the first place, and even if it was, lumping the launch of the tablet alongside another two hotly anticipated items might just ensure that Microsoft’s upcoming event is going to be a show stopper.
Microsoft Surface Pro 5: How complete is it?
If there is one particular secret that Microsoft is able to keep at the moment and guard with all of its life, it does seem to be the Microsoft Surface Pro 5. Very little is known about it, although we do know that the tablet does exist, somewhere. After all, the French Microsoft website did upload an image of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 by accident before. To add to that, a Microsoft employee who goes by the name of Toby Fitch did upload a LinkedIn post that confirmed his work on the Surface Pro 5’s design. Needless to say, that particular “confession” has been removed since. We do hope that it is close to completion, or is ready to market -- and just waiting for the right moment to be unleashed, as opposed to being just a pipe dream. Major storage and battery upgrades should be expected in the upcoming Surface Pro 5.
When will it launch for sure?
Assuming the Surface Pro 5 is going to be launched simultaneously alongside the HoloLens and Xbox Project Scorpio, it ought to be rather easy to sniff out an exact release date, right? The thing is, Microsoft has also been pretty tight lipped concerning both the Xbox Project Scorpio and the Hololens, not making an announcement of the date(s) just yet.
Many people figured out that it would make plenty of sense to have the Xbox Project Scorpio debut at the E3 event that is kicking off in June. This is in line with the Xbox Project Scorpio team leader confirming on how Microsoft is looking to roll out some big news at E3 this year. With that in mind, we could be looking at a June release date for the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 as well, although a March unveil in a standalone event should not be ruled out, either.
