Microsoft Surface Pro 5 vs. Surface Pro 4 specs, features and price: Pro 4 gets heavy discounts, is Surface Pro 5 worth the wait?

However, despite the fact that Microsoft has not yet officially confirmed any of the rumored Surface Pro 5 specs, much of the hype for the upcoming tablet-laptop can be attributed to the competitive features already found in the Surface Pro 4.

Now the big question is, are the rumored Surface Pro 5 specs so extraordinary that buyers will be convinced to ignore the $200 discount offer for the Surface Pro 4? Let’s see, at its release, the Surface Pro 5 is said to carry Intel’s latest processing chip from the seventh generation Kaby Lake lineup, specifically the up-to-date Core i7-7700 that promises a base clock speed of 3.6-gigahertz and up to a 4.2-GHz turbo speed. Meanwhile, the latest chip that can be ordered on a Surface Pro 4 is the i7 sixth generation Skylake processor that runs at a maximum speed 3.5 GHz.

Coming to display capacity, for now, the Surface Pro 4 is capable of a 2,736 x 1,824 resolution display. The Surface Pro 5 is rumored to sport an ample 3,840 x 2,160 resolution that supports 4K viewing. There are other reports suggesting that the upcoming tablet-laptop might also deliver an ultra high-definition display. However, battery issues might become a concern.

Also, the Surface Pro 5 is expected to sport as much as 16 GB random access memory and up to 1 TB internal memory, which are currently being offered in the Surface Pro 4. As far as design is concerned, many are hoping that the Surface Pro 5 will arrive lighter and thinner for a more efficient and improved portability aspect.

Another major component in the Surface Pro line is the Surface Pen stylus, and it looks like Surface Pro 5 will get the upper hand. The current compatible stylus for the Surface Pro 4 is not rechargeable, whereas Microsoft is rumored to pack the Surface Pro 5 box with a newly-designed stylus with recharging qualities. Microsoft has not revealed yet their official plans but the Surface Pro 5 is widely expected to be released this year. Source: Delhidailynews
