Microsoft Surface Pro 5 with powerful specs, rumors say that Microsoft to Update it with 4K screen.

Microsoft fans were disappointed because of no-show this past fall, but the Tech giant now may be readying a follow-up to its successful Surface Pro 4 tablet for early 2017.

In October, Microsoft's Windows 10 event came and went without mention of a successor to the Surface Pro 4. According to a report in DigiTimes the Redmond Wash, Microsoft is getting ready to launch the Surface Pro 5 sometime in the first quarter of 2017.

Details are limited, but a few notable upgrades are rumored. Quoting information from China's Economic Daily News, the report by DigiTimes reveals that the new tablet will feature a 4K-capable Ultra HD screen. Typical 4K screens have a resolution of 3,840 pixels by 2,160 pixels compared to the 2,736 pixels by 1,824 pixels contained in the Surface Pro 4's 12.3-inch PixelSense display.

According to this information, Surface Pro 5 is going to feature a UHD display that in other terms means that it will have a 4K resolution. This change will see an increase in PPI from 267 to 358 representing a 34% development. The bump in resolution is going to be a noticeable upgrade when users want to upgrade to the upcoming machine.

Additionally, the source also claims that the Surface Pro 5 will have a magnetic charging stylus. This means that while the stylus is attached to the 2-in-1, it would start getting charged and maintain the same level of accuracy as that of a regular pen.

On hardware aspects, nothing is confirmed, but rumors say that the Surface Pro 5 will come running with Intel's Kaby Lake processors, perhaps this time, Microsoft would do well to increase the total amount of RAM and solid state storage from its product. The release of the Surface Pro 5 also means that Microsoft could further reduce the price of the Surface Pro 4, making it more affordable for the masses, reports Tapscap.

The expected announcement date of Surface Pro 5 is rumored to be during Q1, 2017.
