Microsoft Surface Pro 5 to be Released in Spring of 2017
It seems that we will need to wait more than one year until we will see the upcoming Surface Pro 5 device, as according to reports, the Windows 10 “Redstone 2” will be released sometime in the spring of 2017. We remind you that Microsoft’s Surface Pro 5 was supposed to be released in December 2016, when the Redstone upgrade was slated to roll out.
These rumors come from Winbeta, a Windows-focused blog website, which has reported that Redstone 2 will not be released until next year, which means that Surface Pro 5 among other fresh devices running on Windows 10 will be delayed as well. It seems that more “refinements” are required in order to make sure that the next Windows 10 build will be more “attractive” for the average consumers and companies.
According to a report from ZDNet, the release date of the Redstone 2 is actually being adjusted to sync with the eventual devices that will be released by Microsoft. With other words, the Windows 10 Redstone 2 will be ready until December 2016, but the company wants to delay its release, in order to come with some new devices that are currently under development.
The Redstone 2 will most likely fix some issues that emerged with the Intel Skylake that powers the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4.
ZDNet still claims that there are chances that the Redstone 2 and Kaby Lake will be released before the end of 2016. So, if the Redstone 2 and Kaby Lake will see the light before the end of 2016, there are also high chances that alongside the new Windows 10 OS version and the new Intel’s processors, Microsoft will also release devices such as: Surface Pro 5, Surface Phone and Surface Book 2 (all of them running on the Windows 10 Redstone 2).
Do you think that the Surface Pro 5 will be released before the end of this year?
