Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Features: Impressive Display Expected, 7th-Gen Intel Core Chip Most Likely On Board
Microsoft Surface Pro 5 speculations just cannot seem to stop. New reports are suggesting that Microsoft might be working on something instead of a grand release of the device.
According to Express, the company is giving its best effort on the Microsoft Surface Pro 5, which is expected to be released late in 2017. Microsoft created and presented online its latest patent application suggesting that the highly-anticipated device could feature an impressive display.
Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is likely to arrive with a dual display. The first part is said to be a standard screen while the second half is reportedly be made of e-paper.
The e-paper screen could be folded and turned into a keyboard when desired. This enticing feature of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 would be an upgrade of the existing Type Cover embellishment from the previous Surface Pro model.
Furthermore, the patent will make the regular screen able to manage music selections alongside thumbnails of album art that are set for users to choose. Interestingly, this Microsoft Surface Pro 5 display could also be transformed into a group of buttons and controls for gaming purposes.
The most-awaited device’s multifunctional screen shows that Microsoft really offers the best experience a laptop owner could ever have. It is also reported that the company filed the patent application last September 2016. This only means it could be now in a thorough development for the upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 5 launch.
According to PC Advisor, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 635 processor rather than an Intel Kaby Lake chip. The processor will support the device to have a longer battery life, and likely the inclusion of LTE for mobile connectivity.
However, it must not be forgotten that Microsoft used Intel chip products for its all previous Surface Pro models. Therefore, a seventh-generation Intel Core chip would still be a highly possible processor choice of Microsoft Surface Pro 5.
